From mid April to the end of May the Cotswolds are home to some magnificent displays of wild flowers. The spectacle begins in North Meadow, Cricklade with a spring time display of snakeshead fritillaries of international importance. A staggering 80% of Britain’s snakeshead fritillaries grow on this 110 acre site. The meadow is open to the public and guided walks are also arranged.
Just a 20 minute walk from Daisy Chain lies Clattinger Farm, a precious remnant of Britain’s ancient hay meadows. The farm is considered the finest remaining example of a typical lowland hay meadow in the UK.
