Welcome to The Cotswolds!

I love the English Cotswolds and think everyone should visit this beautiful place at least once in their lifetime. Having lived all over the world and traveled as much as possible, I still think that this little part of England is one of the world's greatest treasures. This site is dedicated to helping spread the word and encourage sustainable travel to the Cotswolds.

An update on "The Beast of Stroud"

There have been two very contradictory pieces of news regarding the so-called Beast of Stroud this past week.  Firstly, the DNA that was taken at the site of the deer killings has been analysed and was revealed to be that of a fox (see the article here).  Surprising as it may seem, fox have been known to attack and eat deer (and, hey, why not a wallabe?).

At the same time, a video has turned up in The Sun (certainly the least credible paper in the UK), showing two scientists viewing a "big cat" caught on tape, then verifying that it is indeed some much-larger-than-normal feline.  The video is here.... you be the judge!
