The property

Court Hayes is a lovely Cotswold stone cottage which sleeps four guests, in two characterful bedrooms, with two ensuite bathrooms.

Once two separate properties, the cottage has a unique layout and a wealth of character features, including exposed Cotswold stone walls, original flagstone floors, oak beams and a roaring open fire in the living room. The character of the cottage is complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freeview TV with DVD player, and a well-equipped, modern kitchen.

There is a pretty, enclosed rear garden, with stunning views over the neighbouring farmland, and on-street parking is freely available close to the property. Court Hayes is nestled in the quaint village of Wyck Rissington, in the heart of the North Cotswolds.

This unspoilt village is home to the 800 year old St Laurence Church, where the well-regarded composer Gustav Holst was the resident organist between 1892 and 1893.

The village falls within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and features on the Oxfordshire Way walking trail, a trail just short of 70 miles that runs from Bourton-on-the-Water to Henley-on-Thames. Wyck Rissington is just a short drive from Bourton-on-the-Water, often voted as one of the prettiest villages in England.

Bourton has many tea rooms, shops and restaurants, as well as popular tourist attractions including Birdland and the Model Village.

From Bourton-on-the-Water, further afield places such as the historic Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath are easily accessible for day trips.

Cheltenham is a town in Gloucestershire and lies beneath Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds and above the vale of the River Severn. It is known as 'The Western Gateway to the Cotswolds'. This edge-of-the Cotswolds spa town is hard to beat for refined elegance and Regency terraces, annual festivals, Ladies' College and racecourse. Also fortnightly farmers markets, classy shops and restaurants all surrounded by glorious countryside. The town is home to the renowned Cheltenham Festival, 4 days of horse jump racing culminating in the Gold Cup, held annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse. It's also known for Regency buildings, including the Pittville Pump Room, a remnant of Cheltenham’s past as a spa town. There's fine art at The Wilson museum, and the Victorian Everyman Theatre has an ornate auditorium.

Please note: There are 2 sets of stairs, each leading to one of the bedrooms.

Note: There is a pond at the end of the garden, which is fully enclosed by a gated fence, however, guests with children should ensure that they are supervised in the garden.

Note: 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.
