Cotswolds are the largest of Britain's 36 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Crammed with gentle valleys, pretty villages and undulating hills, they're a tourist
hotspot during the summer months, not least of all because of the rolling grasslands
around Stroud and Slad.
Our summer farmlands and grasslands simply come alive
at this time of year with wild flowers and animals.
- Why not try your hand at nature
activities in summer meadows including flower spotting and Badger watching.
