Cotswold Farm Park Campsite

UK England South West England Gloucestershire

Cotswold Farm Park, Bemborough Farm, Guiting Power, Gloucestershire, GL54 5UG

Err, hello! Camping with children next to the most popular farm park in the country, with an adventure playground, bouncy 'pillows' and baby animals to cuddle and feed – for families, what's not to like?

Being able to pitch a tent in the Cotswolds is an extremely rare occurrence, so somewhat apt that it is possible here – at a rare breeds farm. This place is a huge hit with families, as you’re next to the popular Cotswold Farm Park, made famous as Adam’s Farm by TV presenter Adam Henson.

Camping here is a thorough farm experience. You’re surrounded by the sights, snorts, and smells of all creatures great and small; from Highland cattle and Gloucester Old Spot pigs to chickens and donkeys. Most campers take advantage of the one-off entrance fee for unlimited visits to the farm park. Kids love the adventure playground and the Touch Barn, where you can cuddle such cuties as newborn chicks, rabbits, and ducklings.

And then there are the views. You’re camping in a flat field on top of a Cotswold ridge, with stunning vistas in every direction. And, because all the land surrounding you is farmed by the park, you have access to the most amazing footpaths. The Wildlife Walk is a two-mile wander from the campsite gate into a beautiful valley and back up again. Even the locals can’t believe how lovely it is. Many campers use the site as a base-camp for exploring the Cotswolds and its variety of attractions. From the chocolate-box stone cottages of villages like Stanway and Guiting Power, to the ‘bright lights’ of the spa town of Cheltenham, now more famed for its shops and eateries than its water.

And the added bonus? When all the tour buses and day trippers have left, you and the animals are still there. Albeit you’re tucked up in a tent and they’re in a stable.

Perfect for kids under 7

We stayed here for a long weekend in April with our 3 year old and 1 year old twins. Even though we turned up very late past 10:00 we were greeted with a friendly and welcoming chap who walked us to our spot by the light of his torch. The one thing we weren't ready for was the biting cold wind, but as our guide informed us we were up very high.  We nodded off to sleep to the sound of the wind and the owls.

In the morning we awoke to the sound of goats and sheep. It's a small site, well field really but it has leccy and the shower block is very close and well looked after. the little shop well stocked with tasty Adam's farm produce and it's here you buy your tickets too the Farm. The farm really is very very close, I timed it at just over a minute to the entrance. You pay for one day and then get in for free the rest of the weekend, brilliant. The kids absolutely loved it and I can't recommend it enough. My only (very small) negative is the site playground could be better, it's a bit lame, but then it does'nt matter with the farm so close with some excellent playgrounds.

If you fancy a spot of stargazing you would have to try hard to find a better view, and in the morning the kids can feed the goats through the fence from right outside your tent or campervan. very safe. Just watch out for the tractor ride coming in to the entrance if you let them wander off. 

Last word of advice, don't try and fit a double buggy in the maze.......

Great little Campsite

We've just got back from a weekend camping at the Cotsworld Farm Park, it's our third time using the site, it's a great well laid out campsite.  Each pitch is spacious and well marked out.  The staff are friendly and helpful.  The facilities are limited, but are always clean.  The campsite was half full, so we didn't have any issues waiting for showers etc, but can imagine on a busy weekend they'd be a wait.  The best bit about it, is that you've got access to the farm park next door on a pay once, use for the duration of your stay which is great value.  We'll be back again next year and probably for longer than a weekend to get the most benefit out of the site.
