Family camping next to the most popular farm park in the country, with an adventure playground and baby animals to cuddle
Being able to pitch a tent, park up a caravan or glamp 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, caravanning and glamping 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 are here to take advantage of unlimitted access to the farm park (during opening hours). Kids love the adventure playground and the Discovery Barn, where you can cuddle such cuties as newborn chicks, rabbits, and ducklings.
And then there are the views. You’re camping and glamping 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.

From the host
Adam's caravan and camp site offer a total countryside experience and unique access to all the Cotswolds has to offer. Roll out of your bunk and capture those magical misty mornings and take in the fresh country air. Perhaps someone will already have the kettle on and you'll hear the sizzle of breakfast on the go.
Theres nothing more invigorating than an early morning jog down a quiet country lane or perhaps you'd prefer to take things a little easier- just have a stretch and listen to the countryside waking up around you; the birdsong in the hedgerows and newborn lambs calling to mum.After an action packed day at the Farm Park, or exploring the Cotswolds, settle down back at the camp site and relax whilst watching the sun set over the Windrush Valley.
Dogs welcome: Dogs are welcome guests but a small surcharge applies and they must be kept on their lead at all times, including whilst on the Wildlife Walk. Dogs must not be left unattended in cars, tents or caravans.
Free Farm Park entry: All Campers get unlimited access to the Farm Park for the duration of their stay (during Farm Park opening hours).
The main attractions are right on your ‘farm-step’. You’re surrounded by 1,600 acres of farmland, with access to wonderful walks. A one-off entry fee gives you unlimited access to Farm Park. You’re also in the heart of the Cotswolds, so the famous Cotswold Way footpath is never far from you.
