The Experience

The Wheatsheaf stands at the vanguard of a cool new movement: the village local reborn in country-house style. It’s a winning formula with locals and travellers flocking in for a heady mix of laid-back informality and chic English style. The inn stands between pretty hills in this ancient wool village on the Fosse Way. Inside, happy young staff flit about, throwing logs on the fire, ferrying food to diners, or simply stopping for a chat. Downstairs, you find armchairs in front of smouldering fires, noble portraits on panelled walls, cool tunes playing in the background. Outside, a smart courtyard garden draws a crowd in summer, so much so it has its own bar; English ales, jugs of Pimm’s and lovely wines all wait. Back inside, beautiful bedrooms come as standard, some bigger than others, all fully loaded with comfort and style. Expect period colours, Hypnos beds, Bang & Olufsen TVs, and spectacular bathrooms with beautiful baths and/or power showers. As for the food, you feast on lovely local fare, perhaps devilled kidneys, coq au vin, pear and almond tart. Don’t miss it.

We had a lovely time at The Wheatsheaf Inn! A lovely modern Inn with a classic English style, exactly what you want in the Cotswolds. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Dinner and breakfast was very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. We will be back.

Local points of interest from Sue Bartley

  • Being in the middle of a Cotswolds village there are plentiful walks right on the doorstep, just ask at reception for some maps.
  • We love our four legged friends welcome in all rooms for a small additional fee.
