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.

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’s 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.
