Accessibility

We want to create lasting memories for everyone who visits the Farm Park, whatever their requirements. We are a rural destination, which can present some challenges when it comes to accessibility but we strive to offer an inclusive experience for everybody.

Parking

All parking at the Farm Park is free. Disabled parking is available next to the entrance.

Before you visit

If you have any special requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss how we can help make your visit an enjoyable one.

We can be contacted on 01451 850 307, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.

Carers

Visitors who have any of the below documentation are entitled to one free carer ticket, the guest with the disability and any further members of their party will pay full price. You will be asked to show your documentation to a member of our reception team on arrival. You will need one of the following documents:

  • Disability Living Allowance or Attendance Allowance award letter (dated within the last 12 months).
  • Personal Independence Payment letter (dated within the last 12 months).
  • A current and valid Blue Badge.
  • Letter from GP or consultant (dated within the last 12 months) confirming the need for a full-time carer. This does not need to be a letter of diagnosis.

For visitors who require more than one carer we ask that you bring documentation to support this.

Did you know? Essential carer tickets can now be booked online here.

If you book online, please bring one of the documents mentioned above on the day of your visit.

VISUALLY IMPAIRED

We have five listening posts around our Rare Breeds Through History walkway. Each post features two buttons, the left button will play audio aimed at children, the right button will play audio aimed at adults. All audio explains the history of the breeds in the surrounding paddocks.

Assistance dogs are allowed throughout the Farm Park (as long as they are working at the time).

HEARING IMPAIRED

There is a wealth of written information around the Farm Park to explain our history, the farming year and the story of each of our breeds. If you would like a printed copy of our seasonal demonstrations and displays, please contact us at info@cotswoldfarmpark.co.uk at least one week prior to your visit.

BABY CHANGING AND FEEDING

There are baby changing facilities in all of our toilet areas.

A microwave can be found in the main café for heating baby food or milk.

Breastfeeding is welcomed in all non-animal contact areas of the Farm Park. To make sure you and your baby are safe, we ask that no breast feeding, eating or drinking takes place in any of the barns where animals are kept, or on the Rare Breeds Through History walkway. Please wash your hands when leaving these areas and before eating, drinking or feeding your baby.

PUSHCHAIR ACCESS

All areas of the Farm Park are pushchair accessible. Some of the terrain can be uneven. We have both gravel and grassy paths in our outside areas. The entrance to ‘Dolly’s soft play’ has a small step to enter. Pushchairs are not permitted on the Farm Safari ride, ‘Buggy Parking’ is provided.

WHEELCHAIR USERS

We have a limited number of wheelchairs available for visitors to borrow upon request on a first come first served basis. We recommend that these are reserved prior to visiting to ensure availability (call 01451 850 307).

Doorways to the Farm Park shop and café are extra wide and ramped. The Farm Safari can accommodate one wheelchair at a time. The Farm Park itself has concrete, gravelled and grassy walkways, all wide enough to accept wheelchairs. Please note many of these areas are sloped and may require a bit of strength to navigate in a manual wheelchair.

GUESTS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES

A visit to the Farm Park is a multi-sensory and interactive experience. Please take all the time you need. Our team are more than happy to answer any questions during your visit- feel free to test them out!

Farm Safari ride

The Farm Safari ride takes approximately 30 minutes. A 30-person trailer is pulled by one of our tractors around the outskirts of the Farm Park, while the driver provides an audio commentary, played through speakers in the trailer.

The trailer can accommodate one wheelchair at a time.

The track can be a little bumpy and the tractor is quite loud.

ALLERGIES

All of our food is prepared on-site in a kitchen that handles wheat, dairy and nuts.

For information about ingredients please ask a member of our catering team.
