The Bird Park is a small park set in a natural Cotswold Valley so there are small hills. 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.

Did not meet expectations from website. The park promised so much, but failed to deliver. We arrived at 10.40, and paid £22.90 for our family to visit. We left the park at 11.20 - just 40 minutes at the venue. The park centre was very well presented (A recent build we guessed), and the cashier very friendly explaining about our... More

We visited the park on a lovely sunny Saturday at the beginning of March. They sell bags of bird food for 40p each, and machines round the park dispense deer food for 20p a handful. The four deer were cautious but friendly and extremely cute, and ate out of our hands. The peacocks and ducks were equally friendly, and took... More

At the time there was slot of work going on so was hard to find where to get it. In pictures it looks beautiful but it was very dirty and slightly boring. There is a lot that can be improved however the 4 year old was happy.

I visited here with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed the walk and seeing all the animals. We had previously bought a group ticket and had already done the Roccoco Garden's with the dogs the day before. Dogs aren't allowed in the Deer Park as the animals free roam, but the can be walked in the adjacent abbey grounds - but... More

This was a spontaneous trip out and we loved it. It was over 20 years since we first came to Prinknash Abbey and the Bird and Deer Park were not around! Be prepared to be mugged by birds at the gates but none were vicious and little children were running about happily with no problem at all. We can't wait... More

We always go Christmas Eve and love it my 6 year old especially. Staff were so friendly and helpful, even via email before we... More

I took my 3 year old to the christmas evening to visit santa. We struggled to park at first, then walked down to the park. He loved all the lights around the park (some weren't working but he wasn't bothered by that) We went to see the reindeer - they did look sad and the enclosure could have been made... More
