A great day out with the family, we really enjoyed it. Feeding time is brilliant for young ones, as they get to feed the swans(fling food around. Really lovely walk around the grounds and there is a few other activities to be done whilst visiting.
Such a peaceful place. As the name would suggest Abbotsbury ____nery is absolutely FULL of ____s. It's definitely a sight to remember. We've all seen the odd group of 2-10 ____s in a river or lake, but the ____nery base hundreds. 5 stars. Would 100% recommend.
A really interesting place to visit. The paths are well laid out and of good quality with plenty of information boards around the site. The site itself is very interesting in terms of both it's history but also it's current status. We spent a couple of hours here on a sunny day. 90% of it is both push chair and wheel chair accessible and they have a few available to borrow at the entrance point. Also for those with mobility issues there is a car park much closer to the site than the main car park at the shop / reception area.
Very good few hours out, much better than we were expecting it to be. A great talk at feeding time and a maze for the kids to do afterwards. Try to time your visit with feeding time, it's quite a sight!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. A huge number of swans and feeding time at 12pm or 4pm is a must. Children and adults can join in, freely walking between the swans and cygnets. A birds of prey talk was also included with 10 rescue birds (owls, falcons, buzzard etc). Really good speaker, knowledgeable and humorous - a fine bonus.
