Stunning

Nobody answered my questions ! My goal is the same as yours. However, you are creating a artificial environment, this is not conservation . As,I mentioned earlier, this is causing behavioural problems with the species that could impact on their future... All wild creatures depend on their instincts to survive.. Supplementing this with your offal is counter productive. A fabulous scene, I'm sure. What happens when you leave ? And their generations of false conditioning ?. Whatever your tourist attraction is . Trust me... It surely is not conservation my friends !

Look Judith Amos we have both been there ๐Ÿ™‚

Holly Krahe. Want to go there

Graeme now this is red kites ๐Ÿคฃ

Nadolig Llawen i chi!

Please note our winter Opening Hours. The farm is closed to the general public from Thursday 28th November and re-opens on Thursday 27th December. Specialist Photographic Hides may be used during this period but only if they are booked and paid for in advance (the shop and coffee shop will be closed). If we have any snow during December, we will open; this will be communicated here on the website and via facebook.
We'd like to thank all our visitors for their custom and wish you all a very happy Christmas.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the farm after the festivities.

Will get to visit, it's on my to-do list! ;)

Have a great Christmas. Hope to see you all on the opening week, or weekend. (Whichever is possible).

Thanks to our customers today who alerted us to an injured buzzard in the Kite Feeding Field. We have now rescued this bird, which is underweight and limping, and it's being cared for in our Rehabilitation Aviary. We'll keep you posted on its progress. ... See MoreSee Less

Gigrin is the best.Well managed,informative,helpful staff and a great location

Fingers crossed for Mr Buzzard. What you do for all these birds of prey is just brilliant. We live in a very rural location and are lucky enough to have two pairs of red kites who float around on a daily basis and drop into the fields when my partner is ploughing and drilling to see what they can snaffle. I know there isn't a charity set up for your venture to support you but there definitely should be. Is there any way of looking into it?

Da iawn pawb!

Well done! Please keep us posted on the bird’s progress.

Hope this bird makes a good recovery,lovely birdsx

Well done x

Well done for helping the poorly bird, I hope he makes a full recovery

Xxx

Love what you do for these magnificent birds.

We are now open - Saturday to Wednesday. Closed for maintenance etc on Thursdays and Fridays.
The local mobile transmitter is out of action at the moment so calls to the Red Kite Centre, at Gigrin Farm, are not getting through.
We are open today.

Hi Wayne. No its the price for the length of time booked.

Shame about the no pets rule, especially given that you have to also pay a deposit. We've been booking holiday cottages for years and have never been asked for a deposit

We stayed in September - a lovely comfortable cottage. Very clean and well situated to take in the beautiful views. I can also recommend the coffee and cake at the coffee shop on site.

Is that price per person?

Allie Pike this is that place xx
