Holiday Rental House
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.

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. House Rules Security deposits A security deposit of £175 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card. Pets Regrettably, pets are not accepted. Bed sizes and configurations Master bedroom: King size bed Bedroom 2: 2 x single beds Fuel and logs Electricity and gas are included in the letting price. There is a real fire in the living room, with logs provided under a fair usage policy (there is an honesty box for contributions towards the cost of logs used). Services provided The property has free wireless internet access and a Freeview TV with DVD player. A cordless telephone is also provided, with an honesty box for the cost of calls made. Guests should be aware that mobile phone reception can be poor at the property. Parking Quiet, on street parking is freely available around the property. Child friendly facilities A travel cot (without linen), high chair and safety gate are provided. Initial consumables A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay. 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 the master bedroom up to its ensuite bathroom have a restricted height, requiring most guests to stoop as they go up and down the stairs. The handrails 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 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. More

About the neighbourhood
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
