When we arrived, the cottage was lovely and warm, with basics (tea, coffee, milk and...

We spent a long weekend in this wonderful little village. The house was charming and the fresh flowers and welcome items were very useful. OK the mobile reception was poor, but that made it even better for 2 couples with older children, they could not contact us and so we had a peaceful weekend. The cottage has everything we could...

About the neighbourhood
Guiting Power:

The quintessential Cotswolds village of Guiting Power lies on a tributary of the river Windrush, its russet-coloured houses clustered round a sloping green, providing a perfect example of how the English village can seem to have been carved from the earth it is built on.

This delightful village is a fascinating example of the unconscious harmony created by Cotswold masons over the centuries. The cottages, shops and inns are all beautifully cared for, with many of the buildings being owned and restored by a housing trust, initially set up for twelve cottages in 1934. The church of St. Michael to the south of the village has an exceptionally fine Norman south doorway.

Guiting Power is unusual for a village its size, in having a Post Office, a village hall, a children&...
