Newest Review: ... there are both Asiatic and Indian Lions. Finally, in the Wolf section there was several different breeds which included Canadian Timber Wolves and Grey Wolves. All the big carnivore enclosures were massive, to the point where it was sometimes quite hard to actually see the animal but again, I quite liked this fact because it meant that they could have some privacy away from prying eye when ... more

I recently had a week away in Gloucestershire with my best friend and our dogs. We stayed in a little cottage and planned to see as many attractions as we could in a week. While looking though a brochure of all the local attractions, I spotted one called Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens and was really pleased to see that we were allowed to take the dogs with us for a day out. History In 1923 the Manor House and Estate (that is now the park) were purchased by Colonel Heyworth-Savage and when he died in 1948, the estate was passed to his grandson John Heyworth who is the current owner. In 1969, he decided to open the gardens to the public. The Victorian ... Read the complete review

For forty years the Cotswold Wildlife Park has been a place that I have periodically visited and it was definitely popular with my primary school as the location for school trips, to the extent that by the time I was eleven or twelve I was pretty fed up with going here as I knew it inside out. When I had my own children the visits recommenced and our latest visit was on a beautiful Friday in August when we introduced my 2 year old nephew to the animals here. He absolutely loved it and ran excitedly towards the different animal encounters. It maintained his interest throughout the whole day and he didn't even need to have a sleep as he was so busy. My own teenagers still . Read the complete review

Cotswold Wildlife Park was the perfect place to take my little daughter for her first birthday. Me and my husband are huge wildlife fans. We have been known to sit for hours on a Friday night by a badgers sett waiting for them to come out and by a stream where otters have been spotted in the pouring rain to no avail on both accounts. So we like to soften the blow of our failed wildlife endeavours and occasionally visit places where we know we are going to be guaranteed a sighting, or several. It looks like our daughter has inherited the wildlife bug. She has been known to hyper-ventilate on seeing a pigeon and so a wildlife park seemed the perfect destination ... Read the complete review

** Introduction ** Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens (which I'll mostly abbreviate here as "CWP") is a cross between a zoo and a foot-based safari park. Set in well over 100 acres of landscaped gardens, the park provides a home for a variety of animals (and birds) large and small, some of them not species you are likely to have seen anywhere else. Naturally, as with all such parks nowadays, the conservation angle is stressed, but that doesn't stop CWP being a most enjoyable day out if all you want is to look at interesting animals. ** Orientation ** Given that the park is so large, it's very much appreciated that there are nice ...

I have been to the park many times as a child and recently returned with my own family although not the warmest of days we had great fun and for myself I enjoyed visiting a place which held wonderful memories for me and hopefully creating memories for my own children. The park is open every day expect Christmas Day from 10am. Admission is £10.00 per Adult and £7.50 for a child (3-16) and £7.50 for OAP. Although these prices are fairly expensive I believe that the Park does offer value for money as there is an awful lot to do and you can easily spend the whole day there. There are so many Animals to see from Wolves to insects The park has Rhino's ... Read the complete review
