Chosen Hill nature reserve is an imposing sight, located above Churchdown village inbetween Gloucester and Cheltenham. The reserve has excellent views of the Cotswold scarp and contains areas of ancient woodland, scrub and grazed grassland.
The oak, ash, hazel and field maple woodland supports one of the most spectacular bluebell displays in the county, as well as other spring flowers such as common dog-violet, yellow archangel and wood anemone. There is a diverse birdlife, with chiffchaff, great spotted woodpecker, little owl, linnet, nuthatch, whitethroat and yellowhammer amongst those breeding.
Chosen Hill nature reserve is beautiful in the spring and summer months, perfect for escaping the bustle of nearby Gloucester and Cheltenham.
