Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds – An area known for its picturesque countryside and buildings of honey gold Cotswold stone. It is a favourite destination of both British and overseas visitors and attracts many day-trippers. Its picture postcard villages continue to draw visitors as they have done over the last century. However the Forest of Dean also falls within the county and is well worth a visit.
