Farm Park Fun in the Cotswolds
It’s our #SummerOf17 Staycation in the Cotswolds and without a trip to one of our favourite Cotswold attractions, Cotswold Farm Park, our summer simply wouldn’t be complete.
The brand new Maize Maze
As always, we had a fantastic time as a family in the company of Adam Henson’s goats, chickens, rabbits and all the other farm park animals. This summer the park has added the exciting ‘Maize Maze’ which, as the name suggest is in fact a maze in a maize field. Great fun and a super addition to the park.
Rare Breeds Through History
On this trip, we spent a long time going through the Rare Breeds Through History trail, reading about the animals, interacting with them and enjoying the educational experience. When Joe Henson, Adam’s dad, opened Cotswold Farm Park back in 1971, his idea for the park was the preservation of rare breed farm animals and educating the public about them. The Rare Breeds Through History trail is the epitomization of his vision and we enjoyed this part of our visit today very much.
Jumping fun and ice cream
Farm animal fun is one thing, jumping up and down on a giant pillow in a field is another. As ever, the kids enjoyed an entire hour on the super-fun jumping pillows, and delicious ice cream was the perfect end to our visit to Cotswold Farm Park. We can’t wait to go back again next year.
