Joe Henson founded the Cotswold Farm Park in 1971 to help protect some of our rare breeds of farm animal.
We are passionate about all that we do here and are dedicated to delivering the best of British farming, through a sustainable and authentic approach.
When Adam Henson's father started the Park in 1970 at Bradwell Grove, his family home, he hoped to give new life to a house and park that he loves, and to share with as many people as possible his enduring interest in nature.
Over forty years later, he and his family are delighted to welcome you to what is now one of the UK’s largest zoological collections and most exciting gardens. Millions of visitors in that time have discovered here the beauty and diversity of the natural world.
Birdland Park and Gardens was first established in 1957 in the Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water. The 9 acre site is positioned on a former Bryant and May Poplar Tree plantation famous for its matchstick crop! There are still over 150 trees which create a high canopy for the River Windrush. The beautiful setting is inhabited by over 500 birds. Flamingos, pelicans, penguins, cranes, storks, cassowary, and waterfowl can be seen on various aspects of the natural water habitat. There are also over 50 aviaries featuring parrots, falcons, pheasants, hornbills, touracos, pigeons, ibis and many more. The Desert House is home to the more delicate species, whilst the indoor Discovery Zone features egg laying creatures including fish, amphibians and reptiles.

“Let nothing perish” was his motto, and his life was dedicated to doing just that. From the everyday to the extraordinary, you can discover his passion for craftsmanship, colour and design.
Together, Shakespeare's five family homes in Stratford upon Avon form an iconic destination in the UK which has been attracting visitors from around the globe for centuries.
