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.

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

The park is fantastic, the staff are equally as great, especially Melanie, she was very friendly and informative. I would definitely recommend this place, especially for children.

2 adults and 1 five year old. Child price was only a pound less than adult price so was about £7 something. Yes it was nice to be able to walk among all the different birds and the deer that was there. Lots of gates to walk through into separate areas. We took our time walking around and it was... More

We want to thank the staff that made my wife's birthday such a wonderful memory. Melanie and Jeremy along with other members of the team in reception helped to make our visit so joyful. We arrived at 10am on a misty cold Autumn Saturday and were made very welcome. The atmosphere is peaceful and tranquil and there is plenty of... More

Have been going to Prinknash for over 30 years, first with my boys and now with my Granddaughters. The birds and deer are so tame.

Beautiful variety of tame birds, lovely to feed and just stroll around the park. The deer are lovely and you can stroke them the goats are cute too. I've been there a couple of times, being local and if I've had a stressful week, 2 hours there, I forget it all!
