IT might be raining cats and dogs outside, but the Cotswolds is very much still open for business.

That is the message from Gloucestershire's Local Enterprise Partnership, GFirst LEP, and Cotswolds Tourism.

In a statement, it said: "Despite the persistent rain and floods that we are seeing, enthusiasm and spirits to celebrate Valentine’s this weekend and half term next week have not been dampened.

"This is the message from many tourist attractions and businesses from around the county and surrounding areas that are still very much open for business, and a message that Cotswolds Tourism would like to reinforce.

"Gearing up for a romantic valentine this week/weekend and a fun filled half term next week, we have many attractions that are opening for the first time this year."
