The village of Guiting Power
In the County of Gloucestershire Northern Cotswolds 10 miles West of Stow 4 miles SE of Winchcombe Access via A436, B4077,
or B4068

The typical Cotswolds village of Guiting Power lies on a tributory of the river Windrush, its russet-coloured houses clustered round a sloping green. The buildings are restored by a self-help housing trust, initially set up for twelve cottages in 1934.

This delightful village is a fascinating example of the unconcious harmony created by Cotswold masons over the centuries. The cottages, shops and inns are all beautifully cared for. The Farmers Arms in the village and the Hollow Bottom Inn on the road leading to Winchcombe form welcome breaks on a number of glorious walks that can be taken in this area - north-westwards to Guiting Woods, south-eastwards down the Windrush Valley to Naunton, or south-westwards to Hawling.

Guiting Power is a perfect example of how the English village can seem to have been carved from the earth it is built on.

The church of St. Michael to the south of the village has an exceptionally fine Norman south doorway.

Near Guiting Power is the Cotswolds Farm Park with many interesting breeds of animal and is a favourite destination of families.

Places to visit close-bye include Winchcombe and Sudely Castle, the popular village of Broadway, the old market town of Stow-on-the -Wold and its many antique shops, the village of Bourton-on-Water (the little venice of the Cotswolds), and the many surrounding idylic Cotswold villages and inns.

Filming location for the The Wyvern Mysteries (1999) based on a 19th Century writer JS Le Fanu, about a young girl brought up by the man responsible for her fathers death. She falls in love with his eldest son. Starred: Derek Jacobi, Jack Davenport.
