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.

Lovely place, will def be visiting again. Think I enjoyed it more then my two year old :-) fell in love with the very tame deers especially the baby. Only advise is to get at least 5 bags of bird food and lots of 20p's for the food machines(for the deers and fish) as the birds are very tame to... More

I had a nice few hours here with my daughter and son-in-law who live nearby and come here frequently. It was pleasant to see the animals roaming freely and happily and a joy to feed them and will come back with my grandchildren next time. Shop a bit lacking but staff very friendly.

My girlfriend and I often visit here and every time we love it, my girlfriend probably more than the kids that visit! Feeding the deer is always a lovely treat and they are happy for you to take photos with and smooth them. The benches provided are laid out perfectly to watch ducks and feed the birds wandering around. The... More

The Staff were really friendly, prices were incredibly cheep, could not get over how the attractions went on and on, so many different types of birds, so tame and friendly, and for 40p you can get them eating out of your hand! The highlight of the trip is getting to feed the four tame fallow deer they have there. The... More

We visited this park on Easter Bank Holiday Sunday but sadly we arrived shortly before they were closing up. The very kind lady there asked where we had travelled from and she apologised that it was too late to come in the park as they were closing up and we'd not have time to have a good and full look...

A trip to Prinknash is pretty much a staple on my family, whatever the weather. I have visited in freezing winter and boiling hot summer and its always good. I would say its a little expensive, but I always justify the cost by realising that they have to keep the animals well looked after and fed etc. Bags of feed... More

We took our grandchildren aged 11 and 6 today, April 1st. The children loved it. We were met at the gate by hungry birds and bought food at 40p a small bag to feed them. We bought a lot of food both for the birds, and the deer at 20p a handful. I think the admission price was expensive for... More

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
