We spent a wonderful couple of hours on the Trout Farm. Unexpectedly (given it's the Cotswolds and I always think things are a tad expensive there) it was excellent value for money. Even if you don't do the fishing, you can wander around the grounds marvelling at the fish and generally feeling at peace with the world. They supply a couple (3 I think) of BBQs you can use if you feel like cooking your lunch and there's also a little playarea for the younger ones. The real coup for our family though was that included in the entrance price the farm supplies the equipment for everyone to have a fish. Now you need to be aware that whatever you catch, will need to be killed, paid for and taken home with you. For 4 fish they charged us £15, but in my mind that was worth every penny. The kids loved every minute of it and with expert instruction even participated in the gutting, which I know may sound a bit offputting, but we all thought was educational and interesting. If you're really lucky, Peter from Adelaide will be the guy who accompanies you to the fishing river. What a lovely man. He was brilliant with the kids (and the adults) and couldn't do enough to help. Although, the young chap who served us and helped with the gutting was also brilliant, so hopefully that runs throughout all of the farms staff. All in all, thoroughly recommended. One tip - if you're planning to fish and have a longish drive home, take a cool box. You WILL catch fish.
