discover the heritage of the Cotswolds

Your visit to Cogges Manor Farm

As well as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, Cogges today is an award-winning visitor attraction and farm, hosting hundreds of events, festivals and workshops all set against the stunning backdrop of our 13th century Manor House and Grade II listed 18th century farm buildings. Explore a unique and fascinating glimpse of the past, alive today!

Our animals

Come and meet the true characters of Cogges: the animals that live on the farm. From the end of June, 'Meet the Animals’ sessions will be available at weekends and Bank Holidays where you can talk to our volunteers.

Manor House and tours

The Manor House and historic farm buildings have now reopened to visitors including, for the first time in many years, the first floor of the Manor House. Explore each room as you listen to stories of the past or step into Yew Tree Farm of Downton Abbey. At the weekends, you can also see cooking demonstrations on the Victorian range in the manor kitchen, where our volunteers will be making traditional treats to try. Please note, while we do allow dogs on a lead in other areas of the farm, only Assistance Dogs are allowed in the Manor House.

The Manor House is currently open 5 days a week (Sat - Wed) until 22 December, from 9.30am - 4pm. You can also visit it as part of our Christmas Light Trail on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 4.30pm - 6.45pm

Gardens, grounds and trails

Get some fresh air and explore 17 acres of grounds and heritage trails and find out about the history of the site. The Walled Garden is tended by volunteers, producing vegetables, herbs and fruit including Espalier apple and quince trees. It once provided the Manor House residents with food, and today you can try some of our produce in the Cogges Kitchen café, or take home for a small donation.

Children can have fun climbing the adventure play fort — built where the original house once stood, have a go on the zipwire and try a range of purpose built outdoor play equipment.

 

I’ve had a lovely summer taking my little girl, and from August my newborn too, to the farm. Looking forward to doing it again in 2021. Kirstie Bishop
