Kids in the Cotswolds

At Cotswold Farm Park discover how a working farm operates, feed and pet the goats, lambs and pigs and play in the huge children’s adventure playground. Just about every wet activity is possible at Cotswold Water Park, including boating, bathing and surf-biking.
There’s waterskiing, and wakeboarding at Lakeside Ski & Wake, and there’s indoor and outdoor climbing, as well as bouldering at Far Peak Climbing. At the Corinium Museum, you can learn in the interactive exhibitions, explore the collection and get creative in a workshop.
Elsewhere, there are pots to paint, animals to pet, a self-guided treasure trail around Cirencester, riding, karting, bowling and laser-questing, and an open air swimming pool with slides. Wear them out well enough and they’ll be snoozing in seconds at bedtime.
