Known for its PYO and Halloween events – including the ever-popular Spookyard and Frightmare – Gloucester’s Over Farm is set to get some new exciting attractions.

The popular venue in Gloucester submitted a planning application to Tewkesbury Borough Council on Tuesday 18 August 2020 which has now been given the go ahead to create a new attraction dubbed Countryside Adventure.

Countryside Adventure’s attractions will include educational play; animal interaction; outdoor recreation; as well as a new mini-golf area; maze and even a splash zone.

The new site will be open seven days a week from 10am to 4pm including bank holidays and will create 30 new jobs.

The application was given the go ahead by Tewkesbury Borough Council on Tuesday 14 September 2021, but it is not yet clear when the new attraction will open.
