From he tranquil banks of the river Avon to the undulating hills and peaceful wooded slopes of the Cotswolds, the Vale offers some of the prettiest countryside in the United Kingdom.
The region well known for its fruit and vegetable growing (especially asparagus) since medieval times, can be enjoyed seasonally throughout the year.
In Spring there are dazzling displays of blossom from the many acres of plum and apple trees giving great swathes of colour.
A major attraction is the River Avon, with very popular recreational areas offering something for everyone from fishing to walking to boating. Abbey Park with its Victorian bandstand offers you music on Sunday afternoons from June to September, where you can sit back and soak in the tranquil atmosphere of a lazy sunny afternoon.
