The farm is home to breeds across seven different species of British farm animals including Golden Guernsey goats. 

Cotswold Farm Park is run by farmer and BBC Countryfile presenter, Adam Henson and his business partner, Duncan Andrews.

Set across a 650-hectare estate, it is home to more than 50 rare and native breeds of farm animals, including Golden Guernsey goats and Higland cattle.

Various activities are held throughout the year, including daily lambing talks between February and April. 

Now, the Farm Park has released details of two different options especially for groups: 

The Heritage Packagedesigned for a minimum of 20 people, and available weekdays during school term time, this offers group visitors the opportunity to delve into the history of the farm, from its origins in 1971 by Adam’s father, Joe Henson, to its present-day as a mixed holding and visitor attraction.

The package features a talk led by an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Optional homemade refreshments are available to add on, including a classic finger buffet, a traditional afternoon tea or a hot seasonal meal.

Groups visiting Cotswold Farm Park can choose from an afternoon tea, finger buffet or hot seasonal meal with the Heritage Package.

The Standard Group Package: this is available year-round and is aimed at groups with their own itinerary in mind, particularly those wanting to combine a visit to the Farm Park with stops at neighbouring villages including Broadway and Stow-on-the-Wold. Groups of 20 or more receive a 10% discount on day ticket prices. 

Other highlights for groups

Visitors can get up close and meet the farm’s animal residents including Suffolk Punch Horses and Gloucestershire Old Spot Pigs and learn more about the importance of conservation. Groups are also encouraged to pause at one of the viewing platforms or benches to take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.

The Heritage Group Package features a talk by the team about the history of the farm park, its breeds and Adam Henson’s life.

There is a self-guided Cotswold Farm Park Wildlife Walking Trail (route marked, with printed maps available from the gift shop) for visitors to immerse themselves in the surrounding Cotswold National Landscape, which includes a vista overlooking Gorse Valley towards the picturesque village of Kineton.

The trail also takes in the biodiverse Barton Bushes, designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Afterwards, visitors can settle down for a well-earned rest at The Ox Shed restaurant and cafe with a hot drink and homemade treat.

For those looking to organise a longer stay, there are a selection of lodges, glamping tents, camping pods and pitches, which are well-equipped to accommodate groups.
