Pre-booked tickets advised.
As per Government requirements we cannot accept group bookings of 6 persons or more, aged 12 and above, in the Hides. The outdoor kite viewing field is available for these larger groups. Masks are now mandatory in Wales and must be worn in all indoor areas of the farm including the Hides (the Gateway, Tower and Big Tower are exempt as these are primarily outdoor with shelter above).

A big thank you to all our customers for your support now that we’re back open. We’d like to remind customers that we are limiting visitor numbers each day so that safe distancing measures can be followed.
Our online ticketing system is working well and demand is high. With limited tickets available we strongly advise pre-booked tickets to avoid disappointment on the day.
If we reach full capacity on any one day we will have to turn away any visitors who have not booked ahead.
We are a 170 acre family-run working farm, now famous for our Red Kite Feeding Centre. Hundreds of Red Kites feed here every day. It is a truly breathtaking spectacle which we hope you will come along and witness for yourself.
The Red Kite Centre is located in the most beautiful countryside, in the heart of Mid Wales, overlooking both the Wye and Elan Valleys, and just half a mile from the market town of Rhayader. We have general hides for you to watch from, as well as specialist photographic hides, all of which are just a few metres away from where the Red Kites are fed.
There is a coffee shop, gift shop, picnic site, and farm trail on site.
