Cogges Manor Farm


Cogges Manor Farm - Discover the beautiful Oxfordshire Cotswolds and enjoy a morning or afternoon visiting the historic grounds at Cogges.

Cogges is a Scheduled Ancient Monument with over 1000 years of history, with Grade II* Listed 13th century manor house and 17th century farm buildings. Discover the fascinating story of past owners ranging from Norman knights, English Kings, Oxford University college founders to tenant farmers and wool merchants, with links to Witney's historic wool and blanket trade.

Today Cogges is a popular visitor attraction for all the family. Explore over 15 acres of the manor house and grounds, walled garden, picnic orchard, moated islands and river Windrush walk.
Children love to feed the farm animals and go wild in the adventure play and nature island, or try on hats, vintage clothes or hand made costumes in the dressing up parlour. There is also a sandpit, soft play and games from swing ball to lawn croquet.

Stop for a lunch or cream tea in the Cafe at Cogges, or buy farm eggs and local produce, gifts or rural crafts from the shop.

Check the website for special events from theatre to festivals, craft workshops and family activities.

Downton Abbey;
Cogges is the perfect place to visit on a location tour of ITV's popular drama series Downton Abbey, filmed in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Fans of Downton will be interested to know Cogges is the home of Yew Tree Farm and Mr Drewe, the tenant farmer. Many of the farm scenes in series 4, 5 & 6 took place in the grounds!
