Put a Spring in Your Step with these Family-Friendly Cotswolds Events


If you are looking for things to do in the Cotswolds with the little ones, you have come to the right place

Children are always welcome at Ellenborough Park, one of the most luxurious family friendly hotels in the Cotswolds, but we know it takes a lot more than acres of land and some indoor games to keep them entertained. With this in mind, we have put together a list of the most child-friendly events in the Cotswolds for you to enjoy when staying at Ellenborough Park with all the family.

Fairytale Farm

A sensory and learning experience for all the family, Fairytale Farm is a feast for the eyes, ears and hands. Wander along the Enchanted Walk, explore the intricate details of Mouse Town or make some new furry friends in the Animal Zone for a fun day to remember.

Snowdrop Weekends

Snowdrops are the first sign of life to emerge from our long, dark winter here in the UK, which is why people flock to the most picturesque places to spot them. A welcome reminder that spring is just around the corner, children love to wander through forests hoping to spy with their little eye, the first sure sign of spring.

Puddle Jumping Championship

This February, why not treat your little ones to a trip to the Puddle Jumping Championships at Slimbridge? Head down to find out who can make the biggest splash, but don’t forget to bring your wellies, waterproofs and perhaps a change of clothes, just in case!

Cotswold Hare Trail

As Easter approaches, the Cotswolds hares come out to play for another year. A number of huge hares have been hidden around Cirencester, with a bid to be sold at auction come October, with all proceeds going to charity.

What Insects Do

This exhibition by Cath Hodsman at the Corinium explores the importance of insects. Hodsman, artist extraordinaire, specialises in the painting and sketching of creatures both great and small, so this really will be a sight to behold, as well as an undoubtedly educational experience.

Easter Giant Duck Hunt

Following on from the theme of gigantic animals hitting the Cotswolds, we have the Giant Duck Hunt heading to the Wetlands centre this spring. Hard to miss, there will be a number of giant yellow rubber ducks dotted around the local area for your kiddies to uncover.

The Great Lego Build

As part of their Abbey 900 celebrations, Cirencester Abbey will be hosting a participatory event where locals will rebuild the abbey out of Lego. Tons of fun for people both great and small, the event will be running until October 2017, so you have plenty of time to take part.

If you fancy heading to one of these family friendly Cotswolds events, do book a stay at Ellenborough Park to finish off your time here in style, comfort and luxury.
