Cogges Manor Farm Museum Museums
Church Lane, Cogges
Cogges is a unique, working museum depicting Oxfordshire rural life in Victorian times set in an historic manor house and Cotswold stone farm buildings.
Visitors take a step back in time when they enter the beautiful farmstead with its original Cotswold buildings and meet traditional breeds of farm animals including cows, sheep, pigs and chickens.
Characters from Cogges' history describe life on a working farm in an audio tour of the farm buildings and displays of farm implements and machinery. Regular demonstrations of farm work such as hand-milking and butter-making add to the experience and help bring the museum to life.
In the manor house, visitors can meet the Victorian maids and watch while they go about their daily duties, including baking on the working kitchen range, washing and cleaning.
Parts of the manor house are over 700 years old. Visitors can learn about the history of the house by exploring the different rooms and talking to the Victorian maids. If you are lucky, you might be able to sample home baking fresh from the range. In the activity room, children can try on Victorian clothes and play with the Victorian toys and games.
