We had a lovely hour or so at the centre. We didn't try the farm trail walk as my mother can't walk far but we got to the hides for feeding time and were rewarded with an amazing experience. Staff were very friendly as well.

Well worth a visit. Very professional set up. 5 large hides, plus a few others for photographers (with added premium) Found I got excellent shots from the standard hides. The kites are literally everywhere, hundreds of them. Fascinating to see this beautiful bird close up. Improvements. Walk, could have been better sign posted and was effectively just muddy farmland (had... More

For my 11 year-old, this was the part of the day he would have foregone. But this was why his cousin had come from Cardiff, nearly two hours away, and both in the end were wowed. Bizarre to turn up to watch eating, but undoubtedly impressive as around 100 red kites swooped and rose time and again. The area is... More

A lovely place to visit with stunning views. There is a small coffee and gift shop and a farm trail which you can walk round (although more signs around the trail would be useful) Watching the red kites feed was magical and something you will never forget! A lovely way to spend the afternoon!

This is a place you just have to visit. Beautiful surroundings, great views and more than a few kites. There isn't a huge amount there but if you take a picnic and have a stroll you'll start to see the kites gathering. By feeding time there are hundreds of them. It is something that you must see.

A not to be missed experience Nice cafe and shop supported by good toilets Watch out for Said the peacock. He was busy displaying to good effect Reasonable charges for entry and good choice of hides Noticed... More
