Stayed for 2 night 7th-9th October. We had the nightingale ensuit room. Beautifully decorated. Slept like a log and the breakfast was one of the best we have ever had (we have had many!!) nothing was to much trouble and the owner is lovely! Only wish we could have stayed longer xx

We've just arrived home from a stay at the Wheelgate House B&B. The rooms are lovely - very cosy and quaint with exposed beams, great views over Bampton and delicious homemade shortbread courtesy of the very friendly and helpful Biz. We also ate in the restaurant on two occasions and the food was delicious! Many thanks for a lovely stay!

It's in the market square, a few short blocks from the filming locations of "Downton Abbey." Staying at Wheelgate gave us the opportunity to stay in a characterful building whose original part...

We stayed here whilst attending a wedding at nearby Caswell House. The place was clean and well presented, Biz welcomed us and also helped us find a taxi which seem to be few and far between! The room was comfortable, as a taller man you need to watch the low beams but that's part of the buildings character! The breakfast... More

I was extremely disappointed with this location. I was very excited to stay here because it had good reviews and I like to stay at Bed and Breakfast locations as much as possible because I like to support local business owners.

I am terribly sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us but I am afraid I have to refute your comments. As the owner I did welcome you and apologised for not being able to carry your bags upstairs. I did indeed have a bad back and it was impossible to do so. But I shall be careful about... More
