Come to Cogges to discover life in rural  Oxfordshire in Victorian times. You step back in time when you enter the  beautiful farmstead with its original Cotswold buildings. Parts of the manor  house are over 700 years old; now you can see what life was like here 100 years  ago.

In the kitchen you can sample home  baking fresh from the kitchen range and talk to the 'Victorian maids' to find  out about the history of the house and the people who lived here. There's plenty  to keep the children happy too, from building models to dressing up and playing  with Victorian games.

Everyone will enjoy meeting the animals in the farm yard,  discovering the agricultural displays and visting the walled Victorian Kitchen  garden, before going on a riverside walk and exploring the fields beyond.

The cafeteria in the old milking parlour, provides sandwiches, light lunches,  drinks, home-made cakes and ice creams. You can also visit the well-stocked shop  to buy books, postcards, gifts , free-range eggs from the  farm and seasonal garden produce.
There are daily demonstrations of baking in  the Victorian kitchen, handmilking and feeding the pigs, as well as buttermaking  on most Sundays.

Facilities for Disabled - Car parking near entrance. Toilet for disabled  people. Wheelchair bookable (subject to availability).
