Very cossy and beautiful place.
Very unique cottage
As we read the review of Jan D. just 2 days before we headed to England, we were very worried about making a mistake with our choice. But, as described, we found a very nice, very unique and old and very comfortable Cottage in a very quiet little village. Just a real well-feeling area. The Cottage itself was cleaned up nice, the beds very comfortable (not often in the U.K.). We loved it right away and we are no people, that expect the highest standard ever, booking a cottage that is 200 and.... years old. It was all satisfying to us. Of course, if you seek you will find some details that could be better, but if you on a trip through history and seeking quietness and recreation, not being too spoiled by the very highest technical standards of the 21st century, and if you have a dog - you will love Court Hayes. Not our last stay here…Promised! Klaus, Christoph, Karin and Uwe.
We were very disappointed about the comfort of this cottage. Beds, chairs, oven, washing machine and toilet should be renewed and contribute to a healthy and comfortable stay.. It wasn't safe in this cottage. It was filthy and greasy upon arrival. There is no proper ventilation in the kitchen and no hood about the stove. Due to moister the kitchen furniture showed a lot of rust marks.
Then about hospitality where the British are famous for.
We arrive two hours to early, and met the person that did the completion, probably. She only could let us know that we didn't have read the papers and we were much to early. No welcome no handshake. Fortunately we were allowed in. Thank you.
The surroundings where superb. We had lovely trips through the Cotswolds’. That saved our stay in Wyck Rissington. We can't recommend this cottage to anyone.
After a thorough renovation it would be suitable to rent out. For now it's very unhealthy.
"Character Cottages, as a marketing agency, does not look after or maintain any cottages. The following is written by the property manager of Court Hayes: "It is always disappointing when negative feedback is received from any guest at any of our home; especially as we put great effort into making sure that our high standards are maintained.
The property was inspected immediately (30 minutes) prior to these guests arriving, and all was to our high standard. These guests were at the cottage for a total of nine days and, despite having our office telephone number, 24 hour mobile number and email address, we heard nothing from them during their stay. Furthermore, the housekeepers were in attendance during the guests’ stay, as a mid-stay clean was included, but there was no comment from the guests about any issue they had encountered.
On receipt of the guests’ email after their departure, we immediately rearranged our schedule to immediately investigate their complaints. We could not find any evidence of the problems they claim to have experienced.
We are confident that this property is as advertised and, as some guests say, exceeds their expectations.""
