Type: Nature/ Wildlife Areas, Zoos & Aquariums
Owner description: 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.

I Cannot express how dissapointed i am at the 'experience' of the Christmas event we attended (Me my partner and 2yr old daughter). We arrived at half 3 and after spending 20 minutes finding a car parking space due to people parking over 2 spaces even though it had car park attendants made our way to the park. Got in... More

What a wonderful afternoon out! Magical, beautiful & great entertainment. We all thoroughly enjoyed our first visit here & are already planning to take our daughter to see Father Christmas here next year. Feeding the birds was an amazing experience, we have never hand-fed peacocks before!

Took my little family up to meet Santa and his reindeer, my son is only 2 years of age so he had a real stranger danger approach to Santa however we were more than impressed with santa's efforts with him. The staff were very friendly despite being very busy and must have been freezing! He was absolutely besotted with the... More

Thanks so much for your review. All the better as it is a busy time at Christmas and visitors have better things to do at this time of year unless they want to complain, which is not so festive. However, all posts are welcome but all the more appreciated when we achieve our goals. More

We have attended various Christmas experiences in Gloucester which we have thourouly enjoyed and felt good value for money including Clear well caves, steam railway, etc - this year we decided to take our 2 year old son to Prinknash bird and deer park for the "Christmas experience". We queued for over 25 minutes to see a grumpy Santa who... More

Many thanks for your post and am very surprised to hear that our Santa is not welcoming as he has been here for 6 years and loves his job. We did have a problem with our till as we opened the new Centre 10 days ago but that has been resolved now and whilst everywhere is busy and waiting to... More

We visited this attraction yesterday and I have never been so disgusted by the charges made for admission.As far as we could see there was no indication of prices at the entrance.When we were told it was £10 per adult and £10 for our two year olds we did not believe it , but we pressed on assuming that we...

Just returned from a visit to Santa, I wish I hadn't bothered. £130, 8 adults, 5 children under 6. This could have been a nice afternoon out for us and our family but was spoilt by the lack of Christmas spirit due to the park being so money orientated and totally disorganised. We were told to go and see Santa... More

Many thanks for your post and I do in fact remember you all very well. The reason for not placing a management response prior was due to us checking the cameras and tills for accurate information. Your entry ticket was issued at 5.10 for £60.00 not £130.00 as claimed. The other visitors paid their their own entry tickets which are... More

We paid a lot of money which I didn't feel was worth it. Wish I had saved my money and fuel. The centre does not take kindly to negative even, member of staff were rude.

Many thanks for your post, we did respond to your email in full. We have noted your points and have offered return tickets which I understand you do not wish to use.

We visited to see the christmas lights and were Shocked that the price was £10 per person even children from 2 upwards!! We were given a 'time' to see Father Christmas which seemed like a good idea but ended up stood in a queue for 45 minute even though we had an allocated time slot? Not sure how that worked?!...

As an adult this was overpriced, but the grandchildren liked it. Very small, unwrapped present for the children. Luckily we only have two grandchildren as this was the total number of choices. There was nothing for the adults although the price - £9.50 special online price - was the same. A mince pie, or complimentary coffee in the tea room... More
