When it comes to top farm days out in The Cotswolds, they really don’t come any better than this! Cotswold Farm Park, run by farmer Adam Henson of Countryfile fame, is home to a whole host of rare breeds and farmyard favourites. There are lots of opportunities to get hands-on, whether it’s holding baby chicks and rabbits at the Experience Barn, or helping with bottle feeding at the Animal Barn. Take a Farm Safari on a tractor and trailer ride through the park, let the kids loose in the Woodland Adventure area, then chill out with a Wildlife Walk through picture-perfect Cotswold countryside, before refuelling at the café.
