Exclusive Cotswold Farm Experience


Immerse yourself in the life of a farmer with our Exclusive Cotswold Farm experience, where you’ll get a hands-on experience in the beautiful English countryside.

Meet Mervyn, our local farmer who is known as Mr Old McDonald. He is a charming character with boundless energy and a deep love for British farming. With his collection of rare breed animals, Mervyn has plenty of fascinating stories to share. His farm, nestled in the picturesque English countryside, is a delightful chaos where baby pigs run around stealing food from the cattle and the cattle snatch hay from the sheep. It’s a sight that can’t be captured in pictures.

Hop into the back of Mervyn’s vintage Land Rover for a farm tour. Mervyn is a respected figure in the farming community, with some of the oldest bloodlines of rare breed sheep and cattle. This is what makes his farm truly special, as he is incredibly passionate about his work and his belted Galloway cattle are a sight to behold. During the tour, we’ll have the opportunity to feed the animals and participate in farming activities.

After spending the morning with Mervyn, the afternoon can be tailored to your preferences. You may choose to visit Stratford-upon-Avon, exploring various Shakespeare sites and even rowing a boat up the River to Shakespeare’s burial site. Alternatively, you could venture to the medieval Warwick Castle and immerse yourself in the drama of the dungeons. If a more relaxing experience is desired, we can take a leisurely tour of the charming Cotswold countryside villages and landscapes.

For those seeking an authentic Cotswold farm experience that is truly unique to England, this is the perfect opportunity to escape to the countryside and meet a genuine local. It will undoubtedly be the highlight of your vacation.

No Company Does Experiences Like This Company

This company is awesome, they are revitalising what can be done in the countryside and are bringing locals with stories to tell closer to mainstream tourism. We met local farmers, a bee-keeper, we learnt to stonewall, read unseen letters from Elizabeth I at a private castle and even had tea with the owner and gardener of a private Cotswold manor. Our 5 days in the Cotswolds was truly like no...
