This delightful village and civil parish can be found in the Cotswolds area. Wyck Rissington has a quaint centre, with a small local shop, a village green and community hall. The nearby village of Bourton-on-the-Water offers more shops, restaurants and traditional pubs. Wyck Rissington is just five minutes from Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold. Wyck Rissington is a village and parish in the rolling Cotswold hills of Gloucestershire. The name Wyck Rissington translates from the Saxon as, "a building of special significance on a hill covered with brushwood". Wyck is one of four Rissington villages along with Great, Little and Upper Rissington. This is a beautiful village and can be regarded as unspoilt with many traditional honey-coloured Cotswold Stone buildings. The village green has a Victorian drinking fountain and a duck pond. The Oxfordshire Way footpath runs through part of the village so is popular with walkers. The local church of St Lawrence has an unusual claim to fame - the famous English composer born in nearby Cheltenham, Gustav Holst, was resident organist when he was 17! Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold are close by all with a good selection of Cotswold pubs some, gastro, some more typically local but the choice is vast!
