A very interesting visit to this Kite Feeding station. I was a bit concerned about the fact that this created an artificial imbalance; however they have succeeded in bringing up the numbers of red kites that were shrinking. The tea room could be improved.

Went expecting less and enjoyed so much more. We turned up early to have lunch and set out on the defined walk before seeing the feeding. The walk is definitely worth it and had hidden surprises. BUT the biggest surprise of all was the feeding - - -TOTALLY AMAZING and not to be missed. If you are in this area... More

Visited for the first time and it was a fantastic experience ! It was busy with all ages and it was mesmerising. There were hundreds of red kites feeding and it was great for myself as an amateur photographer , well worth a visit.

What a wonderful experience. This is a beautiful spot in rolling countryside. I wasn't sure what to expect but it turned out to be the best afternoon. The hides provide an opportunity to see the Red Kites so close - you can almost touch them as they fly past, It's great value for money, with a small information centre and... More

I have travelled through Rhayader many times since the kite feeding centre opened but never been in, so this time I made a special effort to. My son is a keen photographer and he was really pleased with the number of birds he was able to photograph. They seemed to be everywhere you look. The farm trail was well worth... More
