Gloucestershire – Is a county in the South West of England. The main towns and cities include Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Tewkesbury, Cinderford & Lydney.

Gloucestershire is a rural county including three main areas of natural beauty – The Cotswolds, The Royal Forest of Dean and The lower reaches of the River Severn.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are classified as an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” and are a great place for walkers, especially the Cotswold way walk which navigates you the length of the Cotswold hills. About The Cotswolds

The Forest Of Dean

The area is characterised by over 110 square kilometres (42.5 sq mi) of mixed woodland, one of the surviving ancient woodlands in England. A large area was reserved for royal hunting before 1066, and remained as the second largest Crown forest in England, the largest being New Forest.

Although the name is often used loosely to refer to that part of Gloucestershire between the Severn and Wye, the Forest of Dean proper has covered a much smaller area since mediaeval times. In 1327 it was defined to cover only the royal demesne and parts of parishes within the hundred of St Briavels,[1] and after 1668 the Forest comprised the royal demesne only. This area is now within the civil parishes of West Dean, Lydbrook, Cinderford, Ruspidge, and Drybrook.

The Forest Of Dean has many places for you to walk, do some off road biking or other adventure activities. Forest Of Dean Guide
