Cotswold Wild life park (Burford)
Advantages: All day family fun
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 camels and Big Cats a reptile house and insect house Birds Penguins which my Daughter adored especially at feeding time.
For Children there is the farm area where they are actively encouraged to touch the animals or at least approach them here they have Skunks and Guinea Pigs, Rabbits and real Pigs. This area is out of bounds for Dogs.
Within the Park are the Gardens which are magnificent and even with little ones worth a look, situated around the park are various options for eating from snack Kiosks to the main restaurant on our last visit as it was so cold we opted to eat in it was nothing special and fairly pricey so I would recommend taking a picnic and enjoying this in many of the nice areas around the Gardens or indeed by the Adventure Playground which was a great hit with my Daughter so much so that it was hard to persuade her to carry on around however a promise of a trip on the Train soon persuaded her.
The Train is an additional £1 for Adults and 50p for Children but it is an excellent way to see the whole park and take a rest at the same time as the day really does involve a lot of walking.
For those in pushchairs it is accessible and if you are doing a picnic its somewhere to store it however on our next trip I will be taking the Backpack as even easier.
I hope you have decided to take a trip to the park if so you can get directions from their website www.costwoldlifepark.co.uk or just put postcode OX18 4JP into your sat nav and it should take you to the park in Burford.
I will be returning to the Park again in the Summer months and really do recomend it for a whole day's entertainment for all ages it is hard to beat.
Summary: A good day out for all
