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

My wife had taken our two daughters for a birthday party to this park. Due to work being done to create something new, it was a very difficult experience for my wife to manoeuvre the pushchair for our baby daughter through the 'temporary entrance'. Hence, my wife asked me to go down to the venue after the party finished (I... More

I took my 5 year old son and my friend this week. I wanted to purchase a groupon voucher but don't have a printer so waited until we got there to ask if they would accept the code from my phone if I bought the voucher then. The lady on the pay desk was extremely rude and raised her voice... More

Have been here several times since having children but this was our first visit for a while. We spotted a Groupon deal and as we had a free afternoon we thought we would go for it. Was a bit worried as the children are now 12 and 8 but they LOVED it! We knew to take plenty of 20p's for... More

Most of the birds could be fed at close quarters so you really got fantastic views of them. Favourites were the Golden Pheasants and the Yellow Backed Goldens running free in a small wood. It is quite hilly so you need good footwear. There is some building going on and a sign to the Bird Garden from the bottom of... More

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...
