4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

6 of us fussy oldies have just stayed here for a local wedding. Great welcome and ambiance. Charming owner went out of the way and put herself out over and above the call of duty, to accomodate our slightly unusual reqirements. Excellent freshly cooked tasty breakfast using the finest quality ingredients

We go to Bampton every year for the Whitsun Morris weekend. We have stayed in various accommodation over the years, including with local friends, but were delighted when Liz Gooddy opened her gorgeous cotswold stone house as a B&B. We stay annually and always thoroughly enjoy the lovely welcome from Liz, and her delightful comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Now there is the added luxury of the excellent Biztro on the ground floor. For years one could only eat quite basically in Bampton's pubs, but now there is somewhere really excellent to eat in Bampton - Biztro offers very good food in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Long may Liz prosper in her lovely comfortable B&B and her excellent new Biztro.

From the moment I arrived the welcome was warm and a cup of tea was offered. Rooms are a fine blend of modern facilities whilst retaining the original charm of the old building. Beds are comfortable and the whole place gives a relaxing feel. Breakfast was excellent and served fresh which meant the cooked breakfast was hot. A big hit with me. Would definitely return.

We stayed in thei lovely B&B for 2 nights.
It was beautifully clean & comfortable. Elizabeth & her helpers were friendly & charming.
We would certainly recommend this B&B if you are visiting Oxfordshire.

We were attending a wedding in Clanfield, and stayed at Wheelgate house with our children and their partners. Elizabeth the owner was so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The family arrived early and were able to get into their rooms and change before a late afternoon wedding. She gave us the number of a local taxi firm who were great and brought us all home after the wedding.
Wheelgate house is lovely, and the windows overlook the lovely little market square. We all enjoyed her fantastic full English breakfast.. which were were able to have a little later in view of the previous nights celebrations. We were had a look at the site of the filming site for the next Downton Abbey..which was an added bonus! n the locals told us about the celebs that near by! A lovely pretty little town, and Elizabeths care and attention really made our stay. We would be very happy to go back,

My friend and I stayed at Wheelgate House for one night. The house is beautiful and we were welcomed by Biz the owner, we had a brilliant breakfast and a whistle stop visit into Oxford. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. Would recommend a stay to anyone.
