“A fantastic welcome from start to finish.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012 via mobile

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.

We stayed for 2 nights but would have loved to stay more. A very homely feel to the house. excellent breakfast. excellent rooms. excellent beds. Need I say more? Please stay here if you are in the area much better than any hotel. A home from home with a very friendly and helpful host elizabeth. (Nothing a problem). Found it very relaxing to just look of the window across the village square and watch village life. Superb !!!

We first arrived at the Wheelgate House after a very stressful day. Immediately, we were made to feel at home by our welcoming and thoughtful host, Elizabeth. Basically, the Wheelhouse has everything you'd want from a B&B - delightfully relaxed yet stylish ambience, clean, well kept rooms, very comfy beds and clean, well-equipped bathrooms. But the really great thing about it is that it makes everything so easy, the soap's where you want it to be, there's water freshly placed in the room every day and there's even a torch cleverly put in each room in the unlikely event of a power cut. I'd thoroughly recommend it, whether you're looking to stay there on business or want to use it as a base to explore the Cotswold countryside.
