Court Hayes was originally two cottages, which have been lovingly restored, to create a large and interesting two bedroomed property. The Cotswold stone cottage sits in the picturesque and peaceful village of Wyck Rissington, across the road from the 800 year old St Laurence's church, where the famous composer, Gustav Holst, was the resident organist between 1892 and 1893. Court Hayes is perfectly placed for exploring the Cotswolds, whether by car or on foot, and is close to the beautiful market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water.
The cottage contains an abundance of character features, including original flagstone floors, oak beams, exposed stone walls, a real fire and a dining room with solid wooden floors. Complementing these character features, the cottage has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, Freeview TV and a well equipped kitchen.
Court Hayes sleeps a maximum of four people, in two bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is a large, enclosed garden, with views onto the surrounding farmland. The cottage is an ideal retreat for a family or a small group of friends.

Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, low beams and multiple floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency. In particular, the stairs from bedroom 1 up to its en-suite bathroom have a restricted height, requiring most guests to stoop as they go up and down the stairs. The hand rails up the stairs are rope, rather than fixed bannisters.
There is a pond at the end of the garden. This is fully enclosed by a gated fence, however, guests with children and pets should ensure that they are supervised in the garden.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
