Experience Barn

Discovery Barn

Our Discovery 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.  Our knowledgeable staff are on-hand to answer any questions you might have, make sure you test them out!

Animal Barn

Animal Barn

Get hands on with seasonal activities and experience them first hand, with bottle feeding taking place twice daily. Our demonstrations change throughout the year, starting with lambing season, followed by milking, shearing and lots more.

Many mums-to-be will be moved to the barn before their due dates, to enjoy large straw pens, with plenty of natural light and ventilation. This means that you can expect to see more live farm animal births throughout the year, and the animals can enjoy facilities which are designed to meet their every need.

Farm Safari

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.

Rare Breeds Trail

Rare Breeds Trail

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…
