A close up view of the Red Kite naturally feeding, unmissable. A great way to spend an afternoon. Bring your camera.

comfortable rooms,, reasonably priced Very good food But needed work doing to the property at the time that we visited Think this may have been done now But it is an 1800 building and has loads of charm and character And would certainly go there again

Me & my partner went to the kite feeding centre & had a really great experience here, there were hideouts or you to sit & watch the Kites & a man comes round on a tractor with a load of cut up fresh meat & throws it all out over the grass then you get to watch loads of kites... More

The farm feed the red kites every afternoon at 3.00 pm in Summer and 2.00 pm in Winter. You sit comfortably in a hide and watch the action. The red kites swoop down to feed right in front of you and it's a magnificent sight, even if you are not particularly interested in birds. There is also a small tearoom... More

Seems one should not go on a weekend. You must fight for a seat as they sell more tickets than seats. The show was quite interesting but it could be improved with a short talk before hand of history and explanation. The frenzy is very amazing. Needs improvement.
