About
Sitting in the heart of the Cotswolds, Cotswold Farm Park has a long-standing reputation for a fun-filled day out. Visitors of all ages can interact closely with the animals and learn about farming, past and present. As the home of rare breed conservation, visitors can meet over 50 flocks and herds of farm animals, including Gloucestershire Old Spot Pigs and Highland cattle. The indoor barns can be enjoyed all year round, as they are undercover and protected from the elements. With an adventure playground, Tractor School, Sand pits and Jumping pillows, there’s lots of entertainment for children of all ages. The on-site restaurant, serving seasonal food and Adam’s own beer, is a hit with the adults. There’s plenty to offer outside the Farm Park too. Experience the stunning diversity of animals and plants by completing the two mile Wildlife walk, or extend your stay by booking a pitch on the campsite or stay in a luxury lodge. We hope to see you soon!

    Lovely day out
    The animals are fantastic, and the location beautiful. As we were in a group we also had the heritage talk which was interesting. (Appears to be plenty for children activity wise). Only complaint is the cafe/ restaurant. Queued for absolutely ages for a hot drink on arrival, limited seating inside ( it was very cold outside), limited menu for lunch ( unless you wanted to pay £16 for a burger). No sandwiches. Found an outside stand selling paninis (he had just 8! So sold out v quickly), felt half the trip spent queuing! Cafe needs sorting, but NO complaints about the farm, lovely day out.

    Brilliant family day out
    100% recommend this as a family day out. So much for the kids to do, loads of space and seating for picnics. Brilliant the ride on tractors as included in the ticket price. The staff all really friendly and the animals are so well cared for.

    Family get away, camping fun 😊
    Went away with family and the grandchildren. Had an amazing time, pizza on the evening while listening to the live music which was brill. The music was for everyone. Visited the farm the next day while staying on the site. Was very clean and we all enjoyed it even us big kids 😊 site toilets were very clean and kept clean. We were welcomed on site and had things explained to us on how things are done and where things were. Would highly recommend. We didn't move the car from when got there until we left . We had breakfast in the Ox shed which was delicious. Would go again.

    Fantastic Day
    We had a fantastic day Visiting the CotswoldsFarmPark. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed interacting with all the animals as did we. She Especially enjoyed bottle feeding the lambs. The play parks and facilities for the children were outstanding and there was a great variety of things to do. Professional & friendly staff throughout the farm happy to answer any questions and everything is very well thought out and not overwhelming. Any queues moved quickly which was great. The farm was spotless, toilet facilities were kept clean all day and plenty of areas to wash your hands around the site. Lovely little shop to look around on the way home. Well worth our trip from Wales & we can’t wait to visit again! Highly recommend! :)

    Far better than expected!
    Excellent visit and far exceeded my expections (which is quite unusual these days for this type of place). It was very well run, organised, clean and welcoming and the staff we interacted with were all helpful and informative. We would definitely return.

    Memorable day out in the Cotswolds
    The layout and presentation gave a quality feel to the experience. Everywhere was well maintained, clean and tidy. The opportunities to watch lambs feeding, sheep shearing and sheep dog display were an added bonus. It was never too crowded, and the facilities provided cited well with the number of people. The admission cost is high, but reasonably good value. The opportunity to pay less if booked online well in advance is not a great idea, as early decisions to visit cannot be made when this is so weather dependant. There were very noticeably high prices in the cafés (£3.75 for an an average size cappuccino in a cardboard cup) and it was rather irksome that card payments only were accepted throughout the site. This came across somewhat as ‘affluent Cotswolds, no one will mind’.

    Great place for families
    This is a great place to spend the day with family. There is a wonderful range of activities including imaginative, physical and fun equipment. It is great to feed the animals. We visit each year and are never disappointed.

    Feeding the Animals
    Had a wonderful time at The Cotswold Park Farm with our children. They loved bottle feeding the lambs inside, petting the rabbits in the petting barn and feeding the goats and sheep outside. In-between this they had energy to play on the playground. We even bumped into Adam and he helped our son feed Strawberry the Shorthorn Cow

    Great venue for young children and adults alike!
    Lovely afternoon spent here with young nieces. Everything very clean and well set out. Good mix of animals, nature bd play equipment to keep attention of a two year old. Feeding the lambs and petting area a hit. Staff very polite be helpful and informative. Toilets clean and plentiful and quality refreshments scattered around the park.

    Very poor food
    Visited with my grandsons this week and we had a lovely day a very nice venue with plenty to keep 2 small boys occupied. However I found the food to be exceptionally over priced. For a child’s fish finger sandwich it was £11 which I felt was really expensive. Instead we went for a little farmers picnic which was the usual kids goody bag. There was an option of jam, cheese or jam ‘sandwich’. This actually turned out to be a stale brioche bun and inside was the thinnest disc of cheese which you could almost see through. We would come again but definitely bring a picnic. Also a cashless site the boys had some pocket money to spend in the shop but were unable to do so. They didn’t want me to pay they wanted to spend their own money.

Overall, we had a good stay in one of their lodges but a few things let the stay down. The lodge itself we stayed in was modern, and fairly spacious and the amenities were very good.

There were a few details that let the stay down including a broken blind in one of the rooms. We also booked the hot tub which was one of the things we were looking forward to. However, a combination of poor weather and it not heating up/taking forever to heat up, we barely got to use it.

After contacting their customer services, we were disappointed that not even a partial refund was offered. This was our only gripe on what was otherwise a pleasant stay.

We visited yesterday and my kids (boys aged 9 and 3) absolutely loved it. Highlights were the large bouncy cushions - my youngest didn’t want to leave! And the animal handling barn. The whole site is really cleverly designed and very attractive and at every kids activity we liked the fact that a coffee place was nearby! Food was reasonably priced and unlike other places where you pay and then get charged again for activities like face painting, it was included. My 9yr old said it was really fun and we will definitely be back.

A great day out, suitable for children of all ages, and adults too! The Little Bounce was a winner with my son of 3.
The drive to the farm park was pretty special too - beautiful Cotswold stone villages and wonderful views.
Will definitely come again (when it’s dry.)

Massively overpriced for what it is. We paid £74 for a family of 4, which included a small bag of feed, and we were done in 2 hours. Thought there would be a lot more to do and see for the price.

Lovely place with friendly staff. Lots of hungry goats to feed and rabbits to stroke! We loved seeing all the new-born lambs and enjoyed the talk in this area - very interesting. Holding a chick was a highlight for my animal -mad daughter! Would recommend a visit - we had a great day despite the weather!

Easy access, friendly greeting on arrival, so much to see and do especially for children, who were able to touch and feed the animals. Animals looked well cared for and every where was kept clean and tidy.
The only negative would be that the food in restaurant was a little expensive.

We come here quite frequently. Boys (5 & 7)love the animals, especially handling the chicks & stroking the rabbits in the Discovery Barn.
The boys also loved the Easter bunny building (especially recording the messages) & the Sand Art was fabulous.
Infortunately the face painting closed at 1430 so they just missed out on that.
Watching the ewes & lambs being born was absolutely awesome, what an experience!
Feeding the animals has always been a hit; those naughty goats!!
The new walkways are very helpful & look good too.
4/5 because it wasn’t clear that they wouldn’t be making the biscuits. Also the queues for the restaurants were very long!
I would thoroughly recommend the Cotswold Farm Park.
We arrived at 0930 & left at 1500.
I am always impressed by the attention to hygiene, washing hand facilities.
