Little Grey Fergie at Cotswold Farm Park

Little Grey Fergie at Cotswold Farm Park

On Saturday, 27th August I had a very excited little boy on my hands. He got to meet that children’s legend that is Little Grey Fergie.

For any of you that live under a bush or don’t have children that find these bizarre creations on You Tube, Little Grey Fergie is a TV show about a tractor that drives around on his own without a driver. He’s magic.

It also has an extremely irritating theme tune, but that seems statutory for children’s programmes, so it seems.

Anyhow, I’ve totally digressed.

We live in Warwickshire, which has its major advantages. We aren’t really that far from anywhere. Cotswold Farm Park is located near Guiting Power in the Cotswoldsย and is run by Adam Henson of BBC Countryfile fame.

It’s a wonderful little attraction for families of all ages. But of course, particularly great for toddlers and preschool age children. They all love animals, tractors and playgrounds. It’s perfect for them.

Saturday was no exception. Little Grey Fergie came to visit the Farm Park for the weekend and put on regular shows throughout the day.

I’ve got to be honest, I’m not Fergie’s biggest fan, but it was really good. The actors alongside him were brilliant with the kids. The music was familiar and the show itself was well put together. Little legs was totally transfixed for the whole half an hour. He was a little shy when it came to having a photo at the end but I wasn’t going to miss the opportunity of getting a photo for him. So with gentle persuasion and agreeing to wait until everyone else had gone, we got our picture.

We went on to have lunch in the cafe which sits next to the shop. Ah, the shop. Little Grey Fergie merchandise was on sale and we couldn’t not get him a little memento to take home to remember the day.

After lunch we went on to have a slow walk around the rest of the park before we were forced home by a torrential thunderstorm! Thank goodness we got to see Ethan’s beloved Fergie before the rain came!

Overall I was really pleased. Sometimes these things can be a bit of an anti climax but this one really was worth going.

I’ll remember the smile on his face for years to come. All thanks to a magic tractor. Who’d have thought it….

If you fancy a trip to Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park take a look at their website. Enjoy!

    Wishing my boys were young again – they would have loved this a few years ago. Love the photos.

    Looks like you all had an amazing time – and who wouldn’t love a little grey tractor? He’s about as cute as a tractor can be! Thanks for sharing with #fartglitter x

    I’ve just moved to Cheltenham and my little ones love this place (hubster took them at Christmas whilst I was barely surviving a cold on the sofa!). I have yet to discover Little Grey Fergie (I’ve been living in Toronto, not under a stone ๐Ÿ˜‰) so I’ll enjoy my blissful ignorance for a little while longer!

    Love your writing style (I’ve crept a few of your posts is evening!)

      Ah thanks so much. I kind of write how I speak!! Toronto is a perfectly acceptable excuse. Hold onto the ignorance a little longer, save yourself!! ๐Ÿ˜„ Only kidding. It’s what makes him happy so it’s good by me! And thanks so much for stopping by. I really appreciate it. X

      Ps. I love Cheltenham. Not far from me at all! Is there any kind of blogging community around there? I struggle here. X

    It’s a great feeling when you see your child in awe when you take them to visit an attraction or place of interest. My youngest still gets excited when we visit a castle or somewhere that has animals.

    I confess I’ve never heard of Little Grey Fergie, but he reminds me a lot of Brum (do you remember him, little yellow car??) Looks like a fab day out #bestandworst

    This sounds like a really fun day out for little ones. Meeting one of their favourite characters and then seeing the animals is most kids’ ideal day!

      He really did love it – just a shame the rain came and interrupted the rest of the day – but we got to see the main attraction! Phew! x
