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.

WARNING - you will be mobbed by birds on entering the park! They are obviously very much used to being fed by people and they will flock to see if you have any food for them. We thoroughly enjoyed this but may scare smaller children...More

We visited this park whilst away for the weekend. Very unusual birds and the chance to feed them. Very good layout with concrete paths all the way round. Good interaction with the animals.

I usually love Prinknash and everything it stands for. However, the Winter Wonderland experience held a very surprising and disappointing element. You are directed around the usual trail to then come through the marquees toward the end; finally to see Santa, only to then discover...More

We really enjoyed our trip here. We got to feed the birds and deer. Make sure you take 20p's with you so you can buy the animal feed which is dotted around the place. The gift shop is also worth a look.
