Cider with Rosie Country

A beautiful day for a walk through the Slad Valley near Stroud, Laurie Lee country, trekking Frith Wood. Carpets of wild garlic, bluebells, rare woodland violets, blackthorn blossom and the most amazingly picturesque countryside with panoramas to match.

Frith Wood is a nature reserve and an ancient beech wood that straddles the ridge overlooking the Painswick and Slad Valley's. There are a number of footpaths that go through the reserve. Rare plants also include wood barley, white helleborine and yellow bird's nest. The nature reserve is part of a larger site of special scientific interest (SSSI) that includes Bull's Cross and Juniper Hill.
