Hubby and I called in on the way home from a break away.Hubby wanted to photograph some birds.i just sat in the car In the car park and was charged £6.50 for the privilege! I can understand hubby being charged £7.50 to walk up to the hide to photograph but £6.50 just to sit in the car in the car park is Scandalous and a RIP OFF.SO BEWARE PEOPLE!!!

What an amazing experience. My wife and i visited in late September on a rest day while we were walking the length of the Wye Valley Walk. We could thoroughly recommend a visit here, the team were very friendly, the facilities were excellent and at £7.50 per person it is very good value. We were in good time, and were directed towards the field and hides, and we noticed immediately several kites in the sky. We were in hide 3., which had a great view of the feeding area. There was a stonechat on the fence at the back. Feeding of beef scraps began on time, and we saw about 400 red kites come in to feed. It was an absolutely amazing experience with these spectacular birds wheeling and diving to get their food. There were a few buzzards too, and later we saw some corvids too. It only takes about 20-25 minutes for them to take all the food and begin to disperse but it is an unforgettable experience. I had taken my camera and came away with lots of photos. Afterwards we visited the café and shop and we sat outside and enjoyed tea and a slice of cake. There were some nearby feeders for little birds that attracted blue tits etc but we especially enjoyed the siskins

I thoroughly recommend that you visit here. At only £7.50 per person it is a bargain. We arrived along with my 82 year old father who cannot walk far. The man who greeted us was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and allowed us to drive right up to the hides and park outside. Beforehand, we took the opportunity to use the clean and pleasant toilets. After a visit to the on site café and shop we sat outside and ate a slice of cake and had a hot drink. Looking up in the sky we noticed crowds of red kites gathering and circling high up above us, which leant towards the feeling of excitement we felt. We also noticed peacocks, chickens and donkeys nearby, plus a couple of cats strolling around site. There were some nearby feeders for little birds that attracted blue tits etc so that passed a pleasant 10 minutes watching their antics and listening to their bird song whilst having our snack. Then we drove to Hide 3. Inside we had a great view of the feeding area. Up to 600 red kites fly up to 40 miles to be fed here daily and they are all dna related to a single female! Watching the red kites being fed was an amazing experience that will never leave me. So many spectacular birds wheeling around and diving to get food. Everyone in the hides were thrilled as the spectacle unrolled before our eyes.

We also went to the Llanddeusant feeding station, over an hours drive from this one. We were 10 minutes from Llandeusant but my girlfriend booked Gigrin Farm in error. I have to say that Gigrin Farm is a lot more professional. Its £2.50 more per person but well worth it. Met by a friendly and helpful farmer. Watched from proper hides (rather than a shack) with seats. A lot more meat put out compared to LLanddeusant so it lasted so much longer and a lot more birds. We spent well over 2 hours there. Nice surroundings and a cafe and toilet facilities as well. Amazing to watch especially the very rare pale kite. This venue actually felt like the farmer wanted you to enjoy your experience rather than someone that just wants to make easy money. If you can afford the extra £2.50 compared to Llanddeusant this is the one to go to.
