Wildlife & Garden Experiences

The Cotswolds is a countryside playground for wildlife enthusiasts

Not only are there dedicated locations such as Cotswold Wildlife Park and Slimbridge Wetland Centre, but conservation efforts can also be seen throughout the region, looking after the local wildlife.

In spring, embark along The Daffodil Way, a famous walk which takes you through meadows, orchards and woods, following the bright yellow flowers. In summer, the Cotswold lavender fields burst into a scentsational flurry of purple. In autumn, the maple trees set Westonbirt arboretum on fire with their warm colours. Finally, in winter, discover the first snowdrops at Rococo Garden at the aptly named Snowdrop Grove.

With so much wildlife and so many gorgeous gardens to visit, each season offering a different photo opportunity, you are likely to return to the Cotswolds again and again.
