‪Not Value For Money- Poorer Experience Compared to Previous Visits‬
العائلة • أكتوبر 2021
‪Visited the farm park with my two kids, been before and had great days out and fantastic memories with the live demonstrations, animal handling and tractor rides and easily spent a day there, this year however very disappointing experience, appreciate Covid times may restrict or, did restrict some activities, but the lack of activities and removal of a key part of the day out, is not reflected in the price,

£57 for a family of four to visit does not reflect good value for money today when compared to our previous experience Sadly likely to be our last ever visit to the park which is sad given the enjoyment we have had in the past, but the park seems to have lost the values of what it was founded on, the education, the hands on experience the demonstrations, which all combined supports the preservation and rare breed work. Yes you can read the £3k info boards but it’s doesn’t replace the hands in experience,

Also more disappointed that the website does not reflect the changes, indeed even the jumping pillows were closed for the morning but opened later in the day - why?

So in the past could have easily spend a day at Cotswolds Farm Park but with the lack of activities you could be in and round the park in an hour! If you’ve young kids you’ll possibly get around a few hours but for older kids, there is only so may times you can walk round the animals before the novelty wears off for them - so overall, disappointing experience and not value for money on today’s evidence!‬

Hello there So sorry to hear that you had a poor experience with us. We completely recognise the changes we have had to make in order to help our business make it through COVID; initially these tough decisions were forced upon us, via social distancing rules. But since rules have been relaxed, the nationwide staffing crisis has meant it has been difficult for us to bring staffing up to a level where we can provide these entertainments. As an example, tractor rides require an additional 3 members of staff on per day; to cover them over 7 days would require at least 8 people at a time when we struggle to find an additional 1. Furthermore, staff wages have had to increase due to demand, as has the cost of transportation for the large amounts of bulk goods and services we require to keep us going, on top of this we have undertaken significant investment this year (£200k) in our adventure play equipment; which I'm sure you noticed, and as such are satisfied that our pricing remains competitive, whilst being able to support the work we do and keep our doors open. Animals also need to be trained to do shows; you cannot simply take a cow out of the field and onto a stage in front of people. As we have not been allowed to do shows until June of this year, we need to take time to retrain the trained animals we once had. We keep our website updated to this effect, under the Visit us section, Visitor Guidance section and the FAQ section, you will see a question saying "Are all your activities open?" with a clear answer there to let people know what they can expect when they arrive and how this differs from our past offer. We have also removed any signage or mention of these activities to prevent confusion. The bouncy pillows are always closed when wet and opened when dry; this is a health and safety regulation and has always been the case since they were first installed and would have been the case on your previous visits with us. If it has rained the night before, it can take all morning for them to dry out sufficiently to make them safe (particularly the small one where the sun is blocked by the trees). Knowing that they are really popular, our team check them regular and get them open as soon as it is safe to do so. This is made clear on the large signage on the pillows. With all this said, we completely recognise the additional benefit (both educational and entertaining) of doing shows and tractor rides for all our customers. We are confident that we have made some good adaptions where we can (we currently do piglet and rabbit handling for example) but we will be bringing back additional entertainments as soon as we are able to do so next year, without adjusting our pricing. Hopefully this will tempt you will come to visit us again soon. Kindest regards

‪Good day out‬
أكتوبر 2021
‪We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the farm and managed to get our grandson to tear himself away from the various children’s activities and visit the animals. We found the cafes were good value with helpful staff.
I asked staff at the entrance if there was a map available, or an information board, which would tell us where the various walks were and things like nappy changing/toilets/picnic tables etc but they were disinterested in this question and just said ‘no’. I think the provision of either a map or a board would be very helpful on this big site and would have made life easier for us. We didn’t have time for venturing out on to the longer farm walk and didn’t spot any signs to it either.‬

Wow, great to see you traveled from Norway to visit us! We’re honoured you found Cotswold Farm Park a special place and had the chance to see our cattle. We’re really proud of our Highland herd and since their calves came along, they’ve been attracting quite a crowd!

‪Great day out for child with complex needs‬
العائلة • سبتمبر 2021
‪Absolutely fantastic day out for a family with a child with complex needs. Disabled parking close to the entrance, FOC carer ticket, empathetic staff, easy access to the animal barns and open bars on the enclosures so you can see and feed the animals from a wheelchair. The outside circular walk is grass underfoot and uneven but even if you decide this is too rough there is plenty more to see. We visit regularly and the staff have always been so warm and kind.‬

‪A must-see if you have young children!‬
العائلة • سبتمبر 2021
‪An absolute must if you’re in the Cotswolds with young children. We went on a Tuesday which was a ‘toddler free’ day so we didn’t have to pay for my 3 year old.
He thoroughly enjoyed himself… from the park to the tractors and all the animals! The piglets were his particular favourites.
Also the food onsite was really nice and reasonably priced! All areas were tidy and the restaurant exceptionally clean. Would definitely return if we came back to the Cotswolds!‬

Amazing! – We’re really happy to see your 5 star review and pleased to hear you joined us on Toddler Tuesdays. It sounds like your little one had a brilliant time meeting our herds and exploring our play areas. Perhaps we’ll see you next at our Enchanted Light Trail later in the year (it'll be a very magical time of the year!).

‪Fun for adults too‬
سبتمبر 2021
‪Came to visit after our tour guide from Cotswolds Guided Tours recommended it and we're so glad we did! As others have said, they have great space and activities for kids, but as three adults we really enjoyed seeing and feeding the animals. There were so many animals there and the rare breeds were fun to see. Highly recommend getting the food to feed the animals as well, just watch out for the aggressive goats!‬

‪Brilliant overall, though not without its shortfalls.‬
سبتمبر 2021
‪Having paid several visits to the Cotswold Farm Park in recent times, I can say in no uncertain terms that this is a fantastic place to visit; I never tire of seeing the various rare breeds on display and there is almost always something new to see on each visit.

There are some quite interesting breeds on show in the outdoor paddocks of the Farm Park, rare or otherwise, with some notable examples being Highland cattle, Golden Guernsey goats, Exmoor ponies, Manx Loaghtan sheep, Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs, Buff Orpington chickens, and many more besides.

In the Discovery Barn you can expect to find smaller animals i.e. chicks, rabbits, guinea pigs, lambs and goat kids, with a member of staff usually on hand to answer any questions you may have about them. The Animal Barn is also worth visiting, with newborn piglets, goat kids, donkey foals and calves all on display throughout the year.

All-in-all, I very much enjoy visiting the Cotswold Farm Park, however there are a few things that I think are worthy of a mention that could possibly do with some improvement. I do apologise for nit-picking, but I hope that the farm park will take these comments into account.

Firstly, I think that the farm park could benefit from having a bit more variety of animals on show; it has not gone unnoticed that there is a lot of goats on show! True, this is to be expected, but the fact that there does appear to be far more goats than any other animals is worth noting.

Secondly, I must point out that the situation in regards to poultry at the farm park has not been at its best in recent times. From what I've learned, an unfortunate fox attack last year devastated the chicken population, resulting in a very much reduced number being on show during 2020. Earlier this year, the farm park has attempted to rectify the issue with the purchase of several breeds from a nearby supplier, with some of these being entirely new additions. I, for one, was particularly thrilled to find that Buff Orpingtons had been reintroduced to the farm park.

However, due to (presumably) being unable to source cockerels, a lot of the new breeds have only hens on show, with the only exceptions being their Pekin Bantams, Brahmas and Buff Orpingtons. It is common knowledge that you cannot keep a breed going long-term without cockerels, so I hope that the farm park will be able to sort something out in the near future.

What's more, the chickens on show at the farm park are not evenly spread out. For instance, one paddock houses both Appenzeller and Cream Legbar hens; a decision that may have backfired on the farm park as only one out of three Legbars appeared to remain at the time of my last visit, with two of the Appenzellers observed by myself to be seemingly attacking (!) the solitary Legbar hen at one point during this visit. Most of the breeds are also crammed into one paddock at the far end of the farm park, with a solitary Indian Game cockerel accompanying the hens. This leaves many empty paddocks dotted around the farm park, a sight that is not exactly appealing. Needless to say, I would also like to see this aspect improved on.

Finally, it is also worth mentioning that the farm park appears to have lost the Chinese Geese that were present last year; a shame as this now leaves the farm park with only one breed of Goose. Some of the other birds also appeared to be missing on my last visit; these were both Indian Runner ducks, several Appleyard ducks and one Norfolk Black turkey. Whilst some of these could simply have been hiding away in their coops, it is still worth pointing out none of these birds made an appearance during this visit.

Despite these niggles (Again, I apologise for being so specific in my criticisms), this does nothing to hamper my overall experience; as I mentioned earlier in this review, it is always intriguing to learn about the various breeds and their histories, and the fact that there is almost always something new to see does add some extra interest.

I very much look forward to returning to the Cotswold Farm Park, and thoroughly recommend it to anyone in the area.‬

Hello there Thank you so much for your review. It always delights me to see a thorough, well considered response from our regular visitors. We do listen to feedback and incorporate it into our planning meetings. Right now, we are in the process of putting together an in depth customer survey which will predominately be aimed at our regular attendees to understand the customer expectations and future aims of our animal offer. We will send out more messaging about this as it develops. We are aware of, and are seeking to address some of the issues you raise. In the interim, I think it would be good to put you in contact with our Animal Manager who would be better placed to give you more specific feedback and perhaps give you some idea of our intentions going forward. If you email our general enquiries address, we can help facilitate this. On the whole, I am pleased you are still enjoying the park and long may you continue to do so. See you again very soon.

‪Fabulous for families‬
العائلة • سبتمبر 2021
‪We have just spent 3 nights staying at one of the lodges on the farm and have been so impressed. There is such a great attention to detail for families staying! We arrived to a ready made travel cot (and mattress), a bed guard, a high chair and a travel black out blind for each room. The towels and the bedding are super soft and all the cleaning products are sustainable. The farm itself has everything for young children and has kept my two (1 year old and 2 year old) happily entertained for all 3 days. Beautiful location and very thoughtful design ( can see sunset from the decking for all lodges). The campsite and pods looks great too! Thanks for a lovely stay.‬

A full 5 star review! We’re thrilled to hear you extended your visit to include a stay on our campsite! There’s something very special about waking up next to the Farm Park and being able to see the animals throughout a stay, so were glad you were able to experience it. Hopefully we’ll welcome you back again soon!
