We took a tractor and trailer ride to the orchard, picked our own apples and watched them being squashed up into incredibly delicious apple juice to take home and enjoy.
This morning we visited Ellenden Farm for a very special Apple Day they were running.
Ellenden it appears (having not visited before) is a farmshop with a LOT of great ideas.
We’ve had a fantastic time at Cotswold Farm Park today. The sun was shining, the animals were happy and we had a buy one get one free voucher to get in.
It really is a fantastic place to visit, there’s an awful lot to do there and the whole place is really nicely run and well presented. My only real compliant is the price (£9 adult, £8 children).
Unfortunately at the moment it feels all to often that most places that we go for days out have a pricing structure that either relies on people using vouchers to pay or strongly encourages then to buy year long passes add they don’t tend to cost to much more than a day pass.
The animals at Cotswold Farm Park are varied and they have a very strong focus on child interaction with the animals which we really enjoyed. Outside there are lots of animals to feed and stroke and inside there is a special barn with chicks, ducklings and rabbits to hold.
The weather was wonderful today but if it was wet it is not somewhere I would want to visit.
As well as the animals there are numerous play areas and 2 huge inflatables for the kids to jump on. There is a farm safari (tractor and trailer) that provides an insightful tour of the farm. Indoors there are small tractors to drive on a little track. Basically there is an awful lot to do, if you don’t rush you could easily have a full day out there.
It’s definitely somewhere we’ll visit again.
