Guiting Power is a delightful Cotswold Village situated at the upper reaches of the Windrush Valley. Adjacent to the village Green there is a Post Office, a cafe and village hall, with a pub at either end of the village. The name is derived from the Saxon Word “Getinge” meaning rushing, which refers to the nearby rushing Windrush (and not the pace of life in the village!). Dating back to Edward the Confessor the Lords of the Manor were called “lePohers”, thus giving the village the name of Guiting Power. Over half of the property in the village is owned by the “Cochrane” family with the houses being tenanted. There are many footpaths in the parish making the area very popular with walkers and ramblers.
Walking the Cotswolds is one of the best ways to see the sights and sounds of this wonderful area.
