Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park
With beautiful countryside views and interactive animal encounters at every turn, visitors of all ages can learn about farming, past and present, in a relaxed and fun environment.

As the home of rare breed conservation, there are over 50 flocks and herds of farm animals to meet whilst soaking up the surroundings and enjoying the countryside air.

The 20 minute farm safari offers a fantastic way to get around the whole park, without leaving your seat. For those who are keen to make the most of their pedometers though, the 1 and 2 mile Wildlife Walks on the doorstep will certainly get their steps up. The undercover Touch Barn and Demonstration Barn can be enjoyed all year round and there’s plenty of entertainment for children, with a maze, adventure playground, zip wire, bouncy pillows and tractor school.

The on-site restaurant serves seasonal food, whilst the gift shop stocks the farm’s own meat and produce from local suppliers.

“I am thrilled and  delighted to welcome my old friend and colleague Adam and his farm to The Outdoor Guide. It is a fab place to visit with the whole family, there are so many things to do all year round!”


Wildlife Walk from Cotswold Farm Park

A 2 mile walk with a spectacular view of the Gorse Valley from the halfway point.
There are lovely views across the rolling Cotswold Hills, with historic features along the way, including a Bronze Age burial mound and old quarry workings. This landscape has been shaped by generations of farmers, grazed on by animals (particularly sheep) for centuries.

In 1996, English Nature made Barton Bushes into a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of its wildflower-rich limestone grassland and its thriving populations of both the Cotswold Pennycress (a nationally rare plant), and the Duke of Burgundy butterfly.

Current practices at the farm aim to improve conditions for wildlife across the whole 650-hectare mixed holding using a mixture of environmentally friendly farming systems. Along the Wildlife Walk you can see how these practices are benefitting wildlife and biodiversity.

Arrows and information boards mark the route of the Wildlife Walk and a printed map is available from the Farm Park shop. There is a shorter walk of around 1 mile, which is signposted on the route.
