Welcome to our Farm

My father, Joe Henson, founded Cotswold Farm Park in 1971 to help protect some of our rare breeds of farm animal. Together with my business partner Duncan and our enthusiastic team, I am proud to continue in his wellington-booted footprints.

We have passion for all we do here and are dedicated to delivering the best of British farming, through a sustainable and authentic approach.

Lots to see and do...

Animal Barn

Lambing is taking place until 24th April! Later in the year, this is the place to spot our new arrivals and special characters. In here is where any newborn piglets will usually stay, alongside our donkey foals, calves and goat kids.

Adventure Barn

With a huge indoor sandpit, traversing wall, soft play area and plenty of ride-on toys to zoom around on, this indoor play barn is the perfect place to let the children safely explore and let off some steam! If you’re lucky, you might get chance to sneak a cuppa, with The Shed serving drinks and snacks.

Rare Breeds Trail

Arm yourself with some animal snacks – our greedy goats are waiting for you! The Rare Breeds Trail takes you on a circuit of the paddocks so that you can meet a whole host of characterful animals, learning all about the breeds as you go. From frolicking young lambs to our gentle giants, the Suffolk Punch horses, you’ll see them all.

Ronaldsay

Wildlife Walk

Discover wonderful views, rare wildlife and stunning seasonal flowers on our 2 mile trail around the wider farmland, complete with information posts to help you learn more about the past, present and future of this beautiful part of the world. If lockdowns have given you a taste for rambling, this is right up your street! There’s a 1 mile shortcut if you fancy a shorter stroll too. You’ll circle around back to the Ox Shed, so you can always treat yourself to a coffee and a bite to eat at the end.

Outdoor Play

We have a variety of outdoor play equipment; pedal tractors, swings and two large sandpits – one for the smaller tots and one for the bigger kids! Climb through our combine harvester and test your balance across our log assault course. There’s heaps of fun to be had in our two new areas; Aerial Play and Quarry Play.

Bouncy pillows

Hours of entertainment! Whilst the grown-ups grab a coffee and an ice cream from Dolly’s, the kids can work on their acrobatic skills. Who can jump the highest and who has the best star jump form?

Viewing Tower & Platforms

Our Farm Park is 1,000 feet above sea level, so when you climb up to the top, you can see for miles. Some of our platforms also act as feeding stations for our cattle, so slide down some animal snacks and give them a treat.

Food & Drink

There are a number of food outlets on site, with something for everyone. In the Ox Shed restaurant, you can soak in views across the Cotswolds as you relax with a coffee and cake, or enjoy a hearty meal. Inside the Farm Park, ‘Peckish’ serves a takeaway menu of wrap boxes and healthy salads, as well as other snacks and drinks, whilst Dolly’s serves Marshfield ice creams and other refreshments during busy days.
