In nearby Witney you can pop in for a tour of the UK largest Organic brewery, Wychwood, before sampling the produce in the on-site Tap room and brewery shop. The town is also home to plenty of family run cafes and wonderful pubs and restaurants, such as the Hollybush, serving local produce.

Travel north and you will come to Chipping Norton, the highest town in Oxfordshire means you will never be short of a stunning view or walk or two. During the summer months the local lido is open to swimmers of all ages. For younger families, the nearby Fairytale Farm mixes classic fairy tales with animals, an adventure play area, and prides itself on being accessible to all.

Families should also not miss a visit to the Cotswold Farm Park made famous by its owner – Countryfile’s Adam Henson. A full day’s adventure is to be had with everything from spotting new born piglets, alongside calves and goat kids, to petting the rabbits, guinea pigs and lambs in the discovery barn. For the younger visitors the adventure barn features a soft play area with plenty of ride on toys, whilst outdoors you will find a rare breeds trail, a wildlife walk and adventure play area. Dare devils will love the giant inflatable pillows, whilst grown ups may prefer a coffee or a spot of lunch from the Ox Shed.

No trip to the North Cotswolds would be complete without spending some time in Stow-on-the-Wold. Many people visit, not only because it is one of the most well-known market towns in the region, but because it is famed for its antique shops and art galleries. Visitors are also spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat, but a must try is The Old Stocks Inn, the oldest Inn in England, where the traditional British food uses locally sourced produce meaning the menu regularly changes to reflect what’s available. Plus, their charming Little Stocks Coffee Shop serves very indulgent cream teas!

The North Cotswolds is also home to the award-winning Daylesford Organics Farm where you can choose between their three restaurants. The Trough Café is situated in a converted barn and serves the most delicious breakfasts, lunch and dinner from its open kitchen. Or you may prefer to try out the Legbar where you can enjoy drinks, nibbles and small plates. The Old Spot restaurant features a wood-fired pizza oven and is renowned for its cocktails, expertly served by their mixologists. Whilst there you are free to wander through their organic gardens, or attend one of their garden and floristry workshops or up your cookery skills with a choice of courses at the on-site cookery school. But if a workshop sounds too energetic then book yourself in to their Bamford Wellness Spa right next door and enjoy a calming day retreat.

The North Cotswolds makes for a truly outstanding holiday with all ages catered for and activities to be found for all energy levels.
