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.

Good concrete pathways so no problem with buggies but some steepish inclines. Plenty to see but not really spectacular. Can feed birds, fish and deer. I thought the attraction was expensive for what it is but it would seem better value if you can spend more time there, so take your time walking round.

Upon arriving at this place I was overwhelmed with how charming it is. Unlike a Zoo which is full of cages, the animals were allowed to roam across large areas of grass and ponds, with a few small gates in between to separate that larger animals such as the deer and goats. Price: Two adult tickets cost £16.80. Anyone who... More

We booked this as last minute and it was very expensive considering what you get. We took our daughter with her friend. Being 6, they were very excited and practically ran round the park in 20 minutes ! The queue to see Father Christmas was over an hour and then we got the almost obligatory photos, which the girls wanted... More

Took my two grandchildren just before Christmas expecting to have some Christmasy theme there but what a disappointment for all, it cost just over £30 for two seniors and two children plus any food you were asked if you wanted to buy, we were mobbed at the gate by birds of all sorts shapes and sizes, they were desperate for...

I went to this place in a very cold winter day. many birds, four goats and a few deer were there. they are extremy tame and used to people. they know they get fed by us. I enjoyed surrounded by them. the animals made me smile and even very cold day the animals made me forget how cold it was.... More

Visited Winter Wonderland with grandchildren. A brilliant afternnon with plenty to see and do. Great fun with feeding the birds and deer, followed by a visit to the christmas fairy in her caravan. Then on to next place to make christmas cards while getting a snack and hot drink. Then a visit to Santa, followed by face painting. Finally as... More

Had a lovely time walking round this park with so many birds and animals that are clearly so well cared for and loved. Tame deer that want to be fed and petted. Had coffee and cakes in the adjoining café as well. A delightful break in a long journey

This place is way overpriced. Over £32 for a family of 4. We were charged for our 2 year old which I thought was taking the mickey. It's all a bit run down with strange things put in here and there. It will take 2 hours tops to get round if you take it slowly. The only highlight were the... More

It was a bit of a surprise visit for my two girls as they both love animals. When we arrived the car park was virtually empty, but it took us a little while to find the actual park because it wasn't very well sign posted once you got to the car park. So we sat and had a coffee in... More
