Highs & Lows

  • The Wheatsheaf Inn really is the perfect mix of British countryside coziness without being too twee or contrived.

  • The in-house restaurant is seasonal British comfort food at its finest.

  • Attentive and friendly staff – they really do cater to your every need.

  • Delicious locally sourced breakfast included in the price. Think farm fresh eggs and green juice for the health conscious.

  • It really would be nice if there was an actual mini bar in the room.

  • The room got quite hot at night, some sort of fan would have been appreciated.

  • Restaurant

    Yes, and all of the food is locally sourced and seasonal. It is most delicious!

  • Bar

    Yes, the Wheatsheaf is a pub so it has a great bar filled with a mixture of loyal Cotswolds locals and hotel guests - not to mention a fine array of whiskeys, wines, and local ciders and beers.

  • Minibar

    No, but there is a little welcome basket of nuts and crisps.

  • Children

    Bring them, but you’ll probably have more fun if you leave them at home!
