Welcome to Court Hayes, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals.

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.

What a fairytale cottage is Court Hayes! Gorgeous character, as promised. The exposed stone bedrooms in particular were cozy old charm. And what luxury to have the 2 bedrooms separated for privacy and with their own ensuites! The kitchen had all the right mod-cons (except for flo…

It was lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Court Hayes; it is a delightful cottage. We were disappointed to hear that the heating was off when you arrived. The heating is set to a timed schedule, and normally works seamlessly. Unfortunately, on this occasion, a local power cut had occurred, which meant that the timer was out of sync, resulting in the clock being 2 hours late, and the heating not on. As directed, you called the emergency contact number, on which, a voice message had been set up to provide the direct number for guests to call with any maintenance queries. It seems that the full message may not have been listened to, as the maintenance number was not called. We did however receive your email regarding the issue with the heating and were able to ascertain the problem. Maintenance arrived within the hour; the timer was reset, and the heating enabled immediately. You are quite correct in your comments about the difficulty with wifi penetrating the solid stone walls. We have tried to improve the range of the wifi by installing range extenders, which should provide internet access throughout more of the cottage. Thank you for bringing these points to our attention.

This is a beautiful area and the cottage is secluded and quiet. It is a minutes away from fabulous places to visit in the Cotswold! The queen bed sags and needs replacement. Other than that this is a treasure of a place to stay in!

A beautiful old cottage in a quiet and scenic Cotswold village, right in the heart of the countryside. Great log fire, cosy living room with everything you could need in the house. Location is great - right in the heart of the Cotswolds near Stow, The Slaughters and Bourton-On-Th…

The cottage itself is very charming. The area is beautiful and it provides for a perfect get away setting. However, I felt the cottage was missing the basics one would expect to find in a holiday home. We booked for 4 guests and were only given 3 towels for our 5 day stay. Whe…

Thank you for your comments - we're glad you liked the cottage. At all properties, there is one bath towel per person, one hand towel per bed, and bath mats for each bathroom. When the guests made contact to request additional towels, we said that new ones would be delivered to the property. The housekeepers did this a couple of days later, but as far as we're aware, the existing towels were not removed. There were washing tablets at the cottage, but they do look similar to the dishwasher tablets – we have therefore labelled the container to make this clearer for guests. As for the noise from the plumbing, to our recollection, this has never been mentioned, or noticed before, but has since been checked, and no problem found, but I'm sorry it caused a disturbance during your stay.

Did the job well, a cosy cottage, nice and clean, functional and warm. Close to loads of lovely places inc Bourton, Stow and our fave Chipping Campden. It is in the cutest little village, picture postcard stuff. Quick response from management which was nice. A few small things…
