One of Gloucestershire’s favourite family attractions re-opened last month, following on from an extended winter break. The team at Cotswold Farm Park had been working hard on renovations to the site since October last year and they’ve been delighted with the feedback from customers so far.

This year, visitors to the Cotswold Farm Park have been greeted by a much improved admissions area, where the scattering of temporary buildings have been replaced by a bespoke barn housing ticket booths and improved toilet facilities. There’s also a new outdoor decking area and a ‘clubhouse’ tent providing more indoor seating, served by a brand new food outlet. The Farm Park then beckons with improved accessibility and pathways making for an enhanced visitor experience.

The building work signifies another new chapter in the story of the world’s first ever Farm Park, opened by Adam’s father Joe Henson in 1971. Mr H, as he was known to many, sadly passed away in 2015, but was involved in the early stages of planning and the buildings have been designed with the Farm Park history and heritage at the forefront of the design process.

Work is already underway for the next phase of the developments, with the camp site set to re-open with revamped facilities in April and a new animal barn on the horizon.

Unsurprisingly, all of these exciting changes have failed to distract from the real highlight of the Farm Park year; the newborn lambs have once again captured the hearts of locals and tourists alike; and there are still plenty more to come! With 539 pregnant ewes expecting a total of 1,005 lambs, the air up in the Cotswold hills will be full of bleating for some time to come.

Lambing and kidding will be taking place at the Farm Park until 23rd April. Visit www.cotswoldfarmpark.co.uk for more information.
