The annual NFAN awards are judged independently by respected industry experts and aim to recognise the UK’s very best farm attractions and the experience they offer to visitors.

Cotswold Farm Park won the Jim Keetch Large Farm Attraction of the Year award (known in the industry as the ‘Farm Park Oscar’) for attractions with annual visitor numbers of 75,000 and over, which recognises excellence and high standards across the business, and is judged via an anonymous site visit and mystery shop.

Cotswold Farm Park also won the Best Food and Beverage award, with judges commending its friendly and welcoming cafes and restaurant, in addition to the excellent, locally sourced menus and excellent customer service.

The award for Best Digital Presence was also won by Cotswold Farm Park for its engaging, interesting and innovative social media content, as well as its eye-catching, easy-to-navigate website.

Cotswold Farm Park’s Ox Shed gift shop was awarded the accolade of Best Retail award, which recognises that retail is a key growth area for farm attractions.

Kate Lord, General Manager at Cotswold Farm Park, commented: I couldn’t be prouder of the Cotswold Farm Park team for bringing home this haul of awards from the National Farm Attractions Network annual conference. Making it even more special, these awards are independently assessed by esteemed industry peers whom we respect and admire greatly. This is an accolade to be very proud of, and the outcome of the team’s continuous commitment to growth and improvement.

In addition to securing four leading awards, Cotswold Farm Park’s Resort Duty Manager, Tracey Bevis, was highly commended for the Shining Star Award, recognising an individual who consistently goes above and beyond in their role to ensure the customer experience is exceptional.

Cotswold Farm Park reopens to day visitors for the new 2024 season from 9th February with its popular lambing and kidding event, one of the largest events of its kind in the UK. Cotswold Farm Park Holidays remains open to accommodation guests all year round:
