  • "A beautifully, cosy cottage - perfect for a relaxing couples getaway or to spend time with family."

    The picture perfect village is so relaxing and quaint - a getaway from your busy day to day life! The location is ideal for those wishing to explore the cotswolds villages and countryside on walls and bike rides plus lots of fab restaurants in the local area.

  • "Amazing and beautiful place to stay."

    Highly recommend staying here and enjoying the calm, peaceful and stunning place that it is.

    VictoriaDec 2020

  • "Thanks so much for this lovely stay, we had a memorable and unique moment at your place."

    It was a dream ! The cottage is amazingly out of time ! Moments we had around the fireplace were delightful.

    AudreyDec 2020

  • "The place was nice and cozy, and offered more than I could expect."

    Both bedrooms are extremely spacious, but further apart so they offer complete privacy. The bathroom of the king size bedroom was gorgeous and fancy if you want to indulge and treat yourself. Location was great, extremely convenient since it’s close to a Co-op and the town Bourton on the water, but having a car will definitely make it easier to travel around.

    JessicaNov 2020

  • "Lovely cosy cottage in a perfect location, located near to Bourton on Water - very easy to visit and explore the Cotswolds from here."

    Loved the cottage.

    OliviaOct 2020

  • "We had a wonderful weekend in the Cotswolds and cottage was just perfect place ..."

    We had a wonderful weekend in the Cotswolds and cottage was just perfect place to come back in the evening after a long walk

    AshitaOct 2020

  • "At the center of Wyck Rissington, this cottage was the perfect getaway for a staycation."

    We had a wonderful time utilizing the entire cottage and especially the backyard for barbecuing. Checkin was a breeze and check out was even quicker. The host does a great job communicating any questions that arise. We loved our stay and would advise anyone looking to visit the Cotswold for peace and quiet from daily life.

  • "Great property at great location."

    AryoMar 2020

  • "We loved our stay at Court Hayes, a very comfortable and authentic Cotswold cottage."

    Its location, just opposite the church at Wyck Rissington couldn't be better, with freely available parking on the kerb opposite the house. Wyck Rissington itself is the quietest and, in many ways, the most authentic of Cotswolds hamlets, a rarely found 'off the beaten track' kind of place. Don't expect any shops or even a pub within walking distance, but then that's the beautiful quietness of this place.

    PaulFeb 2020

  • "Great little cottage and beautiful location."

    We loved our stay there!

    NicolaOct 2019

  • "The cottage was terrific."

    Check was a breeze, everything was ready for us when we arrived. The cottage is very close to neighbouring villages for shopping and many fine restaurants.

    BruceSep 2019

  • "It's a perfect place to explore and sample the way of life of the Cotswolds"

    JoanAug 2019

  • "Lovely characterful cottage in a remote village, nearby Bourton-on the Water."

    Would stay again. Suitable for people who enjoy a quiet comfy place with a lot of nature around.

    LyndaAug 2019

  • "This cottage is very special!"

    We have stayed at multiple places and this one is definitely at the top as one of our favourites! Every room has such charm - the stone walls, the black beams, the lamps with dimming switches, the artwork... everything! Our daughters loved their room with the vaulted ceiling and my husband and I enjoyed the master suite. We loved our dinners in the dining area and our breakfasts in the private garden! The location is so wonderful for a visit to the Cotswold. We had no idea how much we'd enjoy this area and how close we would be to so many of the towns! And then to return to the very quiet and quaint village of Wyck Rissington, away from all tourists, and go for evening walks was so peaceful. We hope to return to this wonderful place!

    MarcusApr 2019

    ClaireMar 2019

    MiguelDec 2018

  • "Absolutely blissful!"

    The cottage is wonderfully cute - and so's the village. Couldn't be happier...

    DavidAug 2018

  • "This is a lovely cottage full of charm, very well located in this beautiful area."

    We had a wonderful time in a tale atmosphere. We will keep precious memories.

    SandrineAug 2018

  • "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-The-Water. Scraping the barrel for negatives - just watch your head! I smashed my head twice on low door frames/bathroom walls - it does say to mind your head so not the owners fault whatsoever, just be careful.

    OliverApr 2018

  • "Amazing location and cottage!"

    MartinApr 2018

  • "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, the doorways in most Cotswold cottages are small, so if you are like me at 6ft 3 then you have to duck quite a lot! This place is no exception. Highly recommended

    JoeMar 2018

  • "My family of four stayed at Court Hayes this month and we loved it!"

    The property was an incredible find, placed in a tiny village yet very close to a very nice larger town (Bourton-On-The-Water) where my wife loved to shop. My 18 year old daughter, who is fairly well traveled for her age (20 or so countries) declared it to be the best place she has ever stayed at, anywhere. I enjoyed quiet time in the garden, and the whole family was able to walk the nearby footpath (literally across the street) and get a feel for rural England. Would definitely recommend!

    EricJul 2017

  • "Was a perfect weekend escape, beautiful cottage house exactly as described."

    Really enjoyed the spacious kitchen and backyard, and settling in front of the fireplace. Quick drive to several stunning villages close by made it a perfect countryside retreat Highly recommend. Richard

  • "Beautiful little house in a quiet Cotswolds village."

    Perfect long weekend escape for some quality downtime.

    TimApr 2017

  • "A very characterful cottage in a very pretty village, central to some of the Cotswolds best attractions and close to both Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water for local pubs/restaurants."

    The cottage itself has been sympathetically updated, retaining character features, with modern amenities you hope for these days as well, modern kitchen/Wifi etc . An open fire is a welcome addition at all times. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days stay.

    CarmenNov 2016

  • "An excellent cottage in a beautiful village."

    Ideal location to visit Bourton-on-the-Water and Lower Slaughter. Loved it! V. Warrier, August 16
