(We were invited along to the farm park to give our honest review/coverage)
Cotswold Farm Park is still one of our favourite places to visit as there’s so much to see and do and at the moment it’s lambing season.
Along with meeting, stroking and feeding the farmyard animals, you can bottle feed the lambs. You can also watch them being born (fingers crossed!) in the big Animal Barn which is now housing the farm’s flock of ewes and listen to talks about lambing.
You can listen to a fact-packed talk, taking you through the process of lambing all the way from how a farmer plans their lambing season, through to the after-care of the newborns. You can also ask questions about lambing and the farm. Lambing and kidding is until 28th April.
Along with meeting animals, there is so much to do including: a farm safari, sit on tractor rides including electric powered ones! There’s an adventure barn with three great sections including a beach style giant sand-pit. Outside – two bounce pillows, conservation area and woodland walk. For smaller children – Dolly’s Den soft play
My 4-year-old son loves Cotswold Farm Park and especially loves to hold the chicks, rabbits and guinea pigs and feed the very happy goats. You can buy food and go on a ‘Rare Breed Through History Trail’ Even if your child isn’t into feeding or touching the animals, there are lots of other things to do. There’s also a newly refurbished and extended café and shop to keep warm in.
I would highly recommend wrapping up warm and wearing sensible footwear!
It’s a great way to spend a day and we’re thinking of getting a year membership. It’s £90 for one adult and child and grants entry to the Cotswold Farm Park as well as a 10% discount in the on-site shop and café.
There are also many events and offers throughout the year at Cotswold Farm Park, for example Mums go free this Mother’s Day and you can also camp on the site.
