Our Story So Far…
West Country Games is the somewhat hung over brainchild of Simon and Jamie, two local childhood friends. Both grown-ups, in body if not mind, they live in the lively and frighteningly modern metropolis of Bristol (remember they are but simple country boys at heart).
Through the week they yearn for nothing more than to get back to fields, livestock and wellies. It’s their comfort zone and one into which they welcome visitors with open arms and a friendly “Ooh Aar!”
Launched in 2010, the aim of West Country Games was to allow them to recharge their batteries while providing stags and hens with fun, laughter and competition in fresh air and relaxed surroundings. The rest of the team are friends (the occasional non-local has been recruited!) linked by the love of being outdoors and making people smile.
For the 2013 season we have relocated to Gatcombe Farm just on the outskirts of Bristol. We now have a bigger field and adjoining we have ponies, ducks, geese, ostriches and alpacas! There are around 150 cows too. Better still the farm has a fresh produce shop and a restaurant serving up fabulous fresh dishes using supplies from the farm shop.
