It is ideal for families with toddlers as it's not too large. All the birds are free and feed from your hand as do the fallow deer and pygmy goats and the miniature donkeys are there in the summer months. There's a huge collection of peafowl, pheasant and a comprehensive collection of waterfowl. There are follies for the children to play in especially the Wendy House where you will always find toys. Bird Food can be purchased on arrival along with teas and coffees. In the summer the Kookaburras are flown at noon. This is a casual park where you can get close to the birds and animals. The park is undergoing a major change at present with a new visitor centre being built which will be opening in August 2014 which we are looking forward to greatly as there will be toilets a small gift shop and a wide range of courses for adults and children alike will be available. There is a temporary access, however, this is not affecting the park which will remain open daily with the exception of Good Friday. « less

Great idea and lovely location but massively over priced for what it is. On paying they informed us that any peacock feathers we found we had to hand in so they could sell them back to us! The children with me were very disillusioned and we hadn't even got in.

Went along to Prinknash Bird and Deer Park. What can I say but brilliant. Got in on a Groupon Voucher adult and child for £6.50. My teenage daughter loved it. Will warn you it's pretty hilly so a good pair or trainers or hiking boots would be a good idea, this is the only downside that I found. Take plenty... More

I will give this attraction 5 stars as this family run attraction has been going for many years with much hard work and determination. The new visitor centre being built will make a huge difference to all aspects of the experience. Being set in a lovely valley there are bound to be some slopes and access issues along the concrete...

We advised the lady in the shed who takes the money that we wished to take advantage of an online offer but as we were on holiday and did not have access to a printer we we not able to. The lady seemed flustered and said she couldn't help the fact we didn't have a... More

We had a lovely couple of hours at the Bird and Deer Park, where we'd stopped on a bit of a whim on the way to Hatton Court hotel. We were momentarily put off by the £6.80 entry fee - especially as we were two adults and no children! - but it was actually well worth the fee. We spent... More

Well today we ventured out with our 13 month old Grandchildren and the double buggy unsure on how we would get around with all the mud and poo, given all the reviews we had read. The first challenge was getting down the three steps to the payment kiosk which was only just wide enough, although at the last resort we... More

Situated on a tranquil hillside, Prinknash was a lovely place to visit. My husband and I saw reindeer, fallow deer, donkeys, peacocks, all sorts of birds, ducks and chickens. There were lots of places to sit and relax and enjoy the surroundings - and best of all, it was really noiseless even though there were loads of children around. We... More

Great trip out in all weathers to feed the animals, it never gets boring! Take lots of 20p pieces for the animal food. Check online for seasonal activities going on at the park. Small area usually only spend a few hours here but nice to do something different and walking round feeding fish birds and deer. More for younger children... More
