Abbotsbury Swannery Reviews & Ratings

  • Love this place. We saw the owls as well in a separate marquee. The Swans were all beautiful. We had great fun riding the quad bikes. Would come again and again!! Beautiful surroundings and it was fantastic.

  • Third visit to this lovely heritage site. Hundreds is swans and cygnets, and I was pleased to see two Australian visitors, black swans amongst the white. Feeding time talk was fascinating. Wonderful cafe with excellent cream teas.

  • Very pleasant afternoon at the Swannery. Firstly the village itself is a nice old fashioned location with usual tea rooms. The Swannery you'll need to walk from gift shop to bottom end of the site. Various references to the history of the site, well stocked tea room, clean toilets, numerous pens with parenting families. Good afternoon.

  • Fantastic place with something for absolutely everyone. My 7yr old son who has autism loved this place, it was so calming and there was lots of space. The wonderful tractor driver let him have a go at driving the tractor which has been the highlight of his holiday so far! The swans were well cared for and the birds of prey were stunning. The maze and go karts were great fun, a really enjoyable day out.

  • Beautiful grounds and lovely birds with a count of over 800 mute swans at the recent round up which occurred in the week before we visited. There are also at least 4 stray black swans hanging out amongst the others throughout the expansive grounds. Watching the feeding is a delight, with the non-reproducing swans distracted first so as to let the those pairs or single parents with young eat in relative peace. Several folks are invited to join in the feeding of the massive flock. Many trails to follow and a nice gift shop as well. Educational and a place I could see returning to time and again - just like the swans.
