Now heated in the chillier months, our Touch Barn offers a chance for children and adults alike to make friends with the Farm’s smaller residents. Look out for eggs hatching in the incubators and have a go at holding chicks and rabbits. This barn is also home to our younger goats and lambs which can be bottle fed daily…not to be missed. Our knowledgeable staff are on-hand to answer any questions you might have, make sure you test them out!
Get hands on with seasonal activities and experience them first hand. Our demonstrations change throughout the year, starting with lambing season, followed by milking, shearing and lots more.
It’s tractor time! Take the weight off your feet and have a tour on our Farm Safari Ride. A member of the team will talk you through the journey, giving you the chance to learn more about the farm and its animals. Each safari ride is now accessible to wheelchair users as well. The station is located to the side of the Tractor School, just before you reach the Touch Barn.
When Joe Henson threw open the gates to his farm in 1971 and began the Cotswold Farm Park story, he did so to preserve our rare breed farm animals and educate the public about them. The Rare Breeds Through History trail is a continuation of his hard work. Be transported back through time as you walk around the paddocks, learning all about the introduction of each breed as you go. Learn More…
Let the kids loose! They can practise their driving skills in Tractor School, fly down the zip wire, jump on the bouncing pillows or dig in the sand pits.

Is the Farm Park suitable for wheelchair users?
Yes, the majority of the site is accessible for wheelchairs. If you or a member of your party has reduced mobility, we would be happy to offer you one of the wheelchairs we keep on site. Please call ahead to reserve one for your visit.
