Attraction Information

Take a walk on the wild side at Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. From creepy crawlies, beautiful animals, excellent adventure playgrounds and a tropical House, Cotswold Farm Park makes for a magical day out with the kids!

The Animals
Gaze at the Asiatic Lions lazing around in their enclosure - they are sleepy lions indeed! Get eye to eye with beautiful giraffes in the Giraffe Walkway. See the stunning White Rhinos on the lawn of the Gothic Manor House. Make sure you don't miss the daily Penguin Talk & feed at 11am and 3pm. 

Discover Cotswold Wildlife Park's huge collection of over 130 species of exotic birds. Come across all sorts - from Emus, Cassowary, Owls, Pelicans, and Vultures, to the world’s biggest bird, the Ostrich, and everything in between. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Flamingos and Pelicans when you pass by the lake! Feeling brave? Take a peek into the Reptile House for an up-close encounter with giant anacondas, crocodiles and deadly snakes. 

Kids Adventure Playgrounds & Fun Activities 
It’s not just animals you can have fun with at Cotswold. Take a ride on the narrow-gauge railway, or explore the stunning gardens and the huge park to see cacti, succulents and exoitic planting in the walled garden in the summer months. It's the most beautiful backdrop!

Energy still left in the tank? Run wild in the amazing adventure playground, or climb 20 feet in the air on the scary sky maze. It’s going to be one wild day out! Scurry between interconnecting tree-houses, shoot over the rope bridges and shimmy down the epic slides. Children's Farmyard with goat petting area. 

Train Station 
Choo Choo! Wanna go for a train ride around the beautiful parkland? The narrow-gauge railway runs during April to October from 12.00 pm until 4:00 pm (weather permitting) and takes you all around the Park. Its costs: £2.00 for adults , £1.00 for children and under 3’s free of charge. Who knows what other lovely animals you might see on your travels...
Food & Drink
Looking for food outlets at the farm park? You should try the charming Oak Tree Restaurant. Situated at the rear of the Grove Manor House, this restaurant serves the Park’s visitors with hot meals, drinks, sandwiches and cakes. All food is prepared from fresh local ingredients, making it extra authentic! The restaurant is open at 10.00am and closes at 5.00pm in Summer and in Winter, closes at 4.00pm.

Planning a park picnic? At Cotswold Wildlife Park there is plenty of space to relax. There are picnic shelters around the Park, or you can enjoy your picnic on one of the spacious lawns which overlook the enclosures for Rhinos, Zebras and Giraffes. Unwind with your tasty treats while watching characterful animals playing in their animal enclosures. It's important to stress that Barbecues are not allowed at this attraction.

Refreshment kiosks selling hot drinks and ice cream can be found near the Camels and opposite the Red pandas. Next to the Gift Shop, there is a kiosk selling snacks, sweets, ice creams and milkshakes. Please note that these kiosks are seasonal and only open on busy days.
