Red Kite against trees

Booking your visit

Because we are a working farm and we cannot be open every day of the year, booking is usually highly recommended. At present with Covid restrictions we are unable to welcome visitors except by pre-booking

  • Please contact us
    • e-mail: argatyredkites1(at)
    • phone: 01786 841373
    Sometimes e-mails don't get through, so please ring us if we haven't replied to your e-mail within 24 hours.
  • Please tell us which of the hides you would like to book, how many people there will be in your party, give us a contact phone number and tell us of any special requirements you may have. If you would like to talk through the options then either email us or ring and we can build a visit for you.
  • If you need to reschedule a booking we require at least 72 hours' notice. Within 72 hours, we will reschedule for you only if we have been able to fill the time slot with another visitor's booking. Obviously if Covid 19 restrictions change we will either refund or reschedule for you.

We look forward very much to welcoming you to our farm and giving you the opportunity to see the Red Kites.

We are open all year round with the exception of a few days detailed on our Home Page.

  • In winter (starting on November 1st), visitors should arrive prompt for 1.30pm.
