Kids in the Cotswolds
The Cotswold Farm Park is full of fun activities, which can be enjoyed whatever the weather. In our play barn, the ride-on battery operated tractors and self-propelled roller racers are a big hit for our 3-12 year olds, whilst outside for our younger visitors, the pedal tractors give toddlers a chance of tractor driving too.
Looking for more animal fun? Head to the Cotswold Wildlife Park. You’ll get a train ride through the grounds, an adventure playground and of course the lions, zebras, hippos, penguins, fruit bats, monkeys – and lots more.
For a morning or afternoon in Cheltenham you can visit The Paint it Yourself Pottery Co. Lots of messy fun – and some pottery to bring home.
For a fun adventure playground, a great castle and fabulous gardens take a trip to Sudeley Castle. Pack a picnic, pick up a wooden sword and some bows and arrows, then take a tour of the castle.
