discover the heritage of the Cotswolds
As well as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, Cogges today is a vibrant 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!
From 12th April, the farmyard, gardens, picnic and play areas, outside seating and toilet facilities will once again be open every day to all visitors together with walks in the meadows and woodland areas. Dogs are allowed on lead. The Cogges Kitchen cafe is also serving up delicious takeaway treats from 9am - 4pm. Please note - indoor spaces including the Manor House and Dairy are currently closed due to COVID-19 safety measures, but we will reopen these areas as soon as we can.
Watch our film for a taste of Cogges, with thanks to Oxfordshire Cotswolds.
Come and meet the true characters of Cogges: the animals that live on the farm. 'Meet the Animals’ sessions are available at 11am and 2pm every weekend and Bank Holiday where you can talk to our volunteers.
The Manor House and other buildings are currently closed due to COVID-19 government restrictions. When they re-open, try cooking on the Victorian range in the manor kitchen at weekends, where our volunteers will be making traditional treats to try. Or, step into Yew Tree Farm of Downton Abbey.
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.
Please note - some sections of the adventure play, including the zip wire, will be temporarily cordoned off while we complete some necessary refurbishments.
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
