Things to do
Daylesford Organic Farm
If you’re looking for a farm to table dining experience with the most delicious organic produce, make sure you stop by Daylesford – a 2350-acre organic estate. Daylesford is more than just a farm; the whole complex includes a bakery, butcher, fishmonger, greengrocer, wine, homeware, and garden shop. If you have more time on your hands, book yourself in for one of their cookery school courses or a relaxing spa treatment.
Costwold Wildlife Park & Gardens
With more than 260 animal species on display, the Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens is the perfect day out for children of all ages. See rhinos grazing on the Manor House lawns, have a picnic between giraffes and lions, or catch a sight of the zebras by riding on Bella the Train (April-October). For over 40 years, visitors have discovered the beauty and diversity of the wildlife park, enabling it to continue its valuable work in education and endangered species breeding programmes.
Burford Garden Company
Burford Garden Company is a one-of-a-kind garden store where visitors can do much more than pick up plants and garden tools. Browse for antiques and gifts in the shop, enjoy seasonal food from the deli and food hall, or splash out on a unique piece of furniture. Children will be entertained by the outside playground area and the children’s cinema in its impressive toy department.
Historic residences, glorious gardens, stunning stretches of rolling hills, the Cotswolds has many National Trust properties and trails to visit. Walk the grounds of Sherborne Lodge and Estate, only 20 minutes away as well as Buscot Park, and Kelmscott Manor - voted Cotswolds Tourism Small Visitor Attraction of the Year in 2014. Or travel further afield to explore 400-year-old Chastleton House.
There are two excellent golf clubs that welcome visitors close to Grey’s Court Cottages. Challenge yourself to a delightful round of golf at either Naunton Downs or Burford Golf Club.
Talland School of Equitation
Whether you are a novice or looking to get back into the saddle, Talland School of Equitation caters for all levels of ability. Enjoy a one-off lesson, sign your children up to one of their holiday camps or get a tailor-made adult course.
