Chicks hatch ahead of Easter at Cogges Manor Farm in Witney

A popular family attraction is celebrating the arrival of its newly hatched chicks just in time for Easter. 

The new additions to the other animals are just one of the attractions at Cogges Manor Farm this Spring.

There are super-sized eggs on the Easter trail which is running every day until April 16. And the Manor House has been decorated with baking on the range, and storytelling and craft activities for kids including cupcake decorating, making Easter bunny masks and chick paper craft. Open this Bank Holiday weekend and next. 

As well as 17 acres of open space to explore, with an adventure play fort, zip wire and trail around the old moat, there's a mini-tractor children can buzz around the farm on or go on a minibeast hunt with an Explorer pack. Visiting Master Thatcher, Alan Jones, is rethatching the Ox Byre roof as part of a National Heritage Lottery Fund project. And fans of Downton Abbey can enjoy looking around the manor house that doubled as ‘Yew Tree Farm’ in the hit TV series and film.
