Attraction details
Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase

This place is a beautiful and wonderful place to spend a day walking about. Surrounded by the green hills and trees it is just stunning in the sunshine. Being able to feed deer and have them come up to you always makes me happy and each year the deer get more adventurous. I have been several times and will always go back as each time it gets better!

I’ve been here 5, 6, 7 times and I’m always satisfied. The kids have the best time regardless of weather and you really get your monies worth as a yearly member.

Just want you want to keep the kids going all year round with a beautiful easy day out.

Absolutely love this park. Good value at £8.90 per person and bird and deer food only 20p. Really interactive I especially liked feeding and stroking the lovely deer. Beautiful grounds and lots of space and seating for a sit down. There is a great cafe also and gift shop.

Lovely morning spent here as grandparents with our 2 year old granddaughter.
Birds and deer very tame and recognised the bags of food as soon as we walked into their area. This freaked out our little person a bit as they pushed and shoved to get at the food.
However, this is not the place for buggies,wheelchairs of any kind. A steep walk from the car park leads to reception and then about a dozen deepish steps to the park itself. Some paths were unmade which made pushing quite difficult. Luckily our granddaughter walked for some time but soon made for the sanctuary of her buggy when the deer became too friendly.
Just something to be aware of, otherwise a pleasant way to spend a morning. Take a picnic though as coffee shop sells next to nothing
