THE COTSWOLDS COUNTRY FILE
The Cotswold Farm Park is home to sandy haired TV presenter and farmer Adam Henson. The first of its kind in the world the Farm Park was set up by his father in 1971 to promote rare breeds. We combine our visit with a coach tour of the Cotswolds starting with morning coffee and Lardy Cake (included in the tour fee) at Burford, and stopping for lunch off the beaten track in a gem of a town. Please avoid the new extra long coaches if you want to enjoy the most scenic route today.
Then by coach off the beaten track through little hamlets and villages nestling in gorgeous countryside – please avoid those extra long new coaches so we can take you through the charming backwaters. There’s so much to see and so much you’d miss without our entertaining and knowledgeable Blue Badge Tour Guide.
At Northleach, tucked away from the main tourist routes between gently rolling hills at a great Roman crossroads, we discover the Cathedral of the Cotswolds. The stone porch is possibly the most lovely in all England and the giant east window which floods the church with light is glorious. We stay here for free time to buy lunch and time to explore interesting alleys full of ancient houses that radiate from the old market square.
After lunch we sweep across the top of the Cotswold escarpment to Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park. There’s always a lot happening in the all-
At the end of the afternoon we’ll be welcomed into the marquee for an entertaining short talk about the farm and the rare breeds including a question and answer session over a cup of tea (included) before heading for home by 4.45/5.00pm.
