  • Definitely recommend visiting this place. Feeding of swans happens every day at 12 noon and 4pm. Kids can help feed the swans. A lovely man also does a commentary while this is happening. Good disabled car parking area right at the entrance to the swans, just let them know in the shop and they let you through the gate. Lovely gift shop with lots of goodies to spend your money on. Carers get in for free and if you buy your tickets on line you can get 20% off current price of £12-50.

  • Took my elderly mother in wheelchair but actually used one of theirs as more suitable for paths. Staff were very helpful and directed me to disabled parking area so saving longish walk to the swans. Mum has limited vision but was thrilled to see cygnets right close to paths. Surprisingly quiet for Saturday. Recommended!

  • Wow loved this beautiful place and the beautiful swans. You could get very close to the birds. You have to be quite careful though, if you get too close they do hiss and can peck. Watch that your little ones respect the bird's boundaries. We didn't stay for the feeding time but I know its pretty amazing. If you're in the area don't miss out on a visit if you love birds and swans in particular.

  • One of the most peaceful places I have visited. The work you do here is so precious. I came away knowing that there is beauty still to be found. Thank you all for your dedication and Love. V xx

  • Luvly experience...spent a couple of hours there which was enough & learnt lots. Feeding time was fun to watch & kids loved getting involved. Plenty of shade & good access for wheelchairs & pushchairs. Go-karts looked fun for older kids....something for everyone! Nice tea room/cafe. We bought the combo tickets which was great value another attraction for a few pounds more. 😊
