Location Information

Guiting Power is a quintessential Cotswold village clustered around a small green, with a pub at either end. Rows of attractive stone cottages line the lanes, and the village benefits from both a farm shop and café. There are many footpaths on its doorstep including the Wardens' Way which leads to the bustling market town of Winchcombe in one direction, and the much loved village of Bourton-on-the-Water, via Naunton, in the other.
For your shopping essentials, there is a Post Office in the village or Co-ops in both Winchcombe and Bourton-on-the-Water.
Guiting Power is well-placed for visiting the Cotswold honeypots of Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway and Chipping Campden to name a few.


I stayed at The Cotswold Lady for a week with my two children aged 10 & 13. The cottage was spotless and such a beautiful, restful environment to explore the Cotswolds from.The kids especially appreciated the games room which was well stocked with all the classics & there was a fabulous play park nearby.The village was close enough to the tourist hotspots, but off the main drag. It was nice to escape the busier towns to somewhere that was ‘gently bustling’ with a lovely cafe, pubs and of course the Cotswold Guy! It seemed to be a stopping point for hikers & cyclists.Parking nearby to the property was never a problem. The cottage did have some quite steep stairs that might be off putting to people with mobility issues or very young children, otherwise it’s perfect and comes highly recommended.We arranged our visit through StayCotswold, who were very helpful and managed to secure us a last minute booking.

We're delighted your family had the perfect stay at The Cotswold Lady. Thanks so much for sharing your feedback Rebecca and we hope to see you again sometime!

A beautifully decorated, quirky apartment in a idyllic village setting, a great place to explore the Cotswolds from. We visited both the local pubs, great places to rest after a busy day with good food and a drink. Also, we sampled breakfast and coffee and cakes at the Old Post Office and pain au chocolate from the Cotswold Guy, which were all delicious. We found all the places we visited to be dog friendly too. Our only criticism was, we had a few issues with the oven, not sure if that was us though? We would definitely revisit the Cotswold Lady.

Thank you for the wonderful review, Gary. We’re pleased you found The Cotswold Lady to be perfectly located for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds and that you enjoyed sampling some of the delicious local produce. We’ll ask the owner to take a look at the oven to ensure this is working okay. Thanks for letting us know and for anything like this, guests are always welcome to contact the property manager at the time of a stay – The property manager is on hand and always happy to help with any queries or concerns so that guests will have the most enjoyable stay. We’re so pleased you would return to The Cotswold Lady and we hope very much to see you again soon!
