Christmas on the Farm


Christmas on the Farm is a cherished tradition at Cotswold Farm Park, allowing families to bask in the magic of the season.

After sharing their heartfelt wishes with Father Christmas, children will be invited into his Toyshop to select a very special present to take home with them. Next, it’s off to join Mrs Claus in her Gingerbread Workshop for a delightful session of biscuit decorating!


But that’s not all! Children will also be invited into the Elves’ Teddy Bear Workshop, where they can breathe life into their very own cuddly companion, which will serve as a beautiful momentum of their Christmas adventure. Throughout the journey his Elves will be on hand to capture each families’ magical moments, including that unforgettable meeting with the jolly man in red, which will be available to purchase at the end of the visit.
