Attraction Information

Meet the nation’s favourite farmer along with his furry, fuzzy and feathered friends at Cotswold Farm Park. You’ll learn how a working farm is run with wheelbarrows worth of fun!

Past & Present
The Farm was originally set up by Adam Henson's father to protect rare breeds, a legacy that is still cherished today. And Adam is supposedly the best-known farmer in the UK, as he presents his own segment on BBC's Countryfile every Sunday evening. With farming and conservation being his number one priority. Now it comes with bundles of extra fun though - take the Animal Barn where seasonal demonstrations like lambing, milking and sheep shearing all take place. You can even get hands-on with bottle feeding which happens twice a day. The newborn piglets tend to stay here too, alongside the donkey foals, calves and goat kids. Learn why sheep shearing is important and what happens when it's not carried out. Discover the uses for wool and why their favourite breeds (Whiteface Dartmoor and Greyface Dartmoor) are special to them at Cotswold Farm Park. You can find out all this and more with the Farm Park Diaries!

Adventure Play
Catch a ride on the farm safari tractor, and visit adorable rabbits and chicks in the Discovery Barn, as well as ducklings, piglets and lambs. You can also learn more about them and ask any questions you want! Looking for some adventurous fun? Head to the indoor play barn, Adventure Barn, and discover a huge sandpit, traversing wall, soft play area and loads of ride-on toys! With so much choice, your kiddies will have endless amounts of fun. Then explore outside and discover a fantastic outdoor Adventure Playground, equipped with pedal tractors, swings, two giant sandpits, a log assault course, zip wires and an Aerial and Quarry Play! There are also enormous jumping pillows for those who are daring and like to reach for the sky!

Nature Walks
For the animal lovers, take a walk on the Rare Breeds Trail, where you'll find some greedy goats waiting for you (and for food). You'll be taken on a trail that circles around the paddocks where you can meet all kinds of British farm animals with a host of characteristics. Young lambs to Suffolk Punch horses... Then you can whizz around on the Wildlife Walk, a 2-mile wildlife trail, where you can spot beautiful flowers, discover the past, present and future of our marvellous planet and more! Can you spot butterflies?

Food & Drink
Feeling peckish? Hop over to the Ox Shed for some yummy seasonal food. Take in the views of Cotswold as you nibble on some cake and sip on coffee. Or indulge in a wrap box, and healthy salads and satisfy your sweet tooth with some Marshfield ice creams! Then take something home to remember your fun-filled day out with the family, from the farm park shop. Whether it's more food, drinks, toys or a souvenir!

Stay & Play
If you don't want to leave, you can also stay here and experience countryside living at its finest. Whether you stay at the campsite with glamping tents on a friendly campsite or relax in a camping pod! Set up your camping pitches and have an enjoyable visit as you take in the beauty around you.
