The Bird Park is a small park set in a natural Cotswold Valley so there are "hills" as detailed on our web page. There is a stunning new visitor centre where you can buy light refreshments, toys, gifts and wonderful views of the park from extensive balconies. Courses, lectures and events are held here. The park's ideal for families with toddlers as it's not too large and the birds are "free", they are friendly and will come up to you if you are afraid of birds then this is not the place for you as, the birds are free inquisitive 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 from around the world, these are not your common or garden ducks. There are follies for the children to play in especially the Wendy House where you will always find toys inside for the children to play with. Bird Food can be purchased on arrival, which is great fun. Again fi you are afraid of birds then perhaps this is not the park for you. In the summer the Kookaburras are flown at noon, subject to weather. This is a casual and very natural park where you can get close to the birds and animals, with lakes, walking and a true outside feel to it so if your looking for an Alton Towers or a Lego Land attraction then again we are not for you. Yes the birds are free, yes there are hills, yes there are gates and yes it is natural. If you want to get out and be with nature then we will look forward to seeing you and you will love the park.

Prinknash Bird And Deer Park

Very well run and stocked with extremely helpful staff not very disabled or elderly friendly due to being on slopes but great for young children.

Such a great place to visit. I did not know this place existed but I am glad I took the time to visit. Yes it needs a touch more doing to the main park area but I could see the work in progress and still had a relaxing / fun day out. Friendly staff and even friendlier animals. A must... More

I went here with my daughter and my little 5 year old grandson. Living lterally down the road I had never been so this was a real surprise. There is a nice little cafe and the Bird and Deer Park was wonderful. The deer are friendly and can be stroked but are little thieves! If you have food for the... More

I absolutely fell in love with the bambis! They were so friendly and as I had never fed deer before I was in my element. If you are not too fussed about feeding deer, ducks, many species of birds, goats etc then it might not be for you. We went on a rainy miserable day and still stayed for 4... More

A lovely place recommended by a friend. The owners are obviously putting a lot of time and effort into the place currently. We wandered around for the best part of the afternoon , followed by various feathered friends. The lady manning the tills was an absolute delight to speak to , a wonderful character & extremely knowledgable. My daughter emailed... More

A beautiful sanctuary recommended by a friend. Had the most fun, being followed around by hundreds of birds that I would never have seen before. Feeding the birds was amazing; not many places you can be so up close and personal with animals!I would visit again and am planning on coming back soon. recommend all ages to visit - its... More

An interesting place, so many disappointing aspects and as an animal lover I would dissuade people from going at the moment. Many animals and birds looked very sorry for themselves. The poor donkeys, two in a tiny pen the grass bare and them trying to chew the last blades under the electric fence. The kookaburras - two alone in a... More

We took our 2 year old Grandson here and luckily he likes walking everywhere now so we didn't take a buggy. This is because the steps outside the visitor centre are difficult to negotiate and the paths are very uneven. There are also gates to open that segregate some of the birds and animals which you couldn't get through very... More

A magnificent new visitor lounge / entrance leads the way into a somewhat shabby park.At the moment it appears to be at the start of a very long restoration project.The £8 entrance fee was worth it just to feed and stroke "Bambi".And some of the chickens would put a smile on the most miserable face.I will defin ately return and...

A very very very disappointing venue to take young children to ..especially of they are in a buggy. The steps outside are very hard to negotiate and the pathways need repair and widening. As for the double gateways to stop animals getting in and out .....impossible to negotiate on your own with a buggy. It's all very well spending money... More
