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.

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

The park has just undergone a refurbishment and the visitor centre and cafe with crafts available to buy is lovely. The children have great fun feeding the birds and fish but the absolute favourite for all of us are the very tame and beautiful deer who like to be hand fed their food and don't mind the odd stroke or...

The majority of the animals and birds are free to move around their human visitors, a very special experience for adults and children alike. On a good weather day take a picnic and sit and enjoy the sights and sounds around you. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to assist and you can enjoy a cuppa or an... More

This really did not meet our expectations. The terrain was very difficult to negotiate with a buggy ( two needed to push up some inclines ). I expected to spend a couple of hours here, but found very little to keep us entertained. Not up to the standard expected from the web site .

We half expected cages with birds and deer far away in fields. Rubbish!! From our first glorious view down the valley hillside new steps we were surrounded by tame birds who seemed just as keen to see us as we them. Loads of peacocks, all showing off their glorious feathers. Masses of water foul. Not sure what most of them... More

What a delightful place for families to visit. We had a really lovely time. The park has much improved since our last visit a couple of years ago. There are ongoing improvements as well as a new lodge style cafe and gift shop. Enjoyed it so much, we bought a season ticket! It's the perfect place to pop in for... More

I love the bird and deer park. The reviews on here are very unfair. It is the only place that I know you can get so close to the birds and deer. It is steep, so you do have to be prepared, but the new visitors centre is amazing. It has such lovely views of the park and the owners... More

Great day out really enjoyed all the deer, reindeer, birds,fish and little houses. Went next to the car park to the Monastery cafe and shop for lunch, it was a good decision as lovely sandwiches, cakes and service as not alot to eat in the park.

We very nearly abandoned our journey to the bird park as the roads were closed due to the cheese rolling event on Cooper's Hill. However, I'm glad we persisted as we had a lovely afternoon walking through the park and seeing several different species of birds. We hand fed some of the birds and it was quite entertaining seeing how... More

I went to Prinknash as a child and am now returning with my own family over thirty years later. In some ways the place has not changed - relaxed, beautiful, natural environment (rarely over busy) and in other ways greatly changed - new entrance, cafe facilities and easier paths to navigate.... And many works still in progress. I agree with... More
