This hotel is in an ideal location for a visit to the Cotswolds,however you can hear some traffic noise in the bedrooms.Our room was in the attic (no.22) and although this was a good size it was spoilt by a en suite that was the smallest we have ever had.The room had slopeing ceilings and the bed was positioned so that the person on the left had to be really careful when getting out.
The staff we could not fault,very friendly and helpful.The meals we had were all hot and good quality with good service.Overall a pleasant stay but would ask for a different room if we returned.
The Wheatsheaf has nice remodeled rooms in a lovely 17th century coach inn. The hosts are gracious, the rooms are a little small, but who cares. They have big comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. The restaurant is fabulous - carnivores shouldn't miss the lamb chops. The breakfast in the morning included smoked salmon and eggs, a welcome change from the gargantuan heavy full English breakfast we encountered everywhere else on our trip. Northleach is a cute little town, with a lovely old church, a great bakery (we were hiking out the next day and picked up a spectacular lunch), and many lovely old buildings. Northleach also has the only internet cafe we saw in the Cotswolds.
Northleach is on the Cross Cotswold trail. There are a number of lovely walks in the area around the Wheatsheaf. It's a great stop for hikers.
I highly recommend this small inn to anyone staying in the northern reaches of the Cotswolds... just outside Chipping Camden. The room was comfortable and the dining room served a fantastic dinner. If the Lygon Arms is out of your price range, this is a great choice with no disappointments.
Wonderful food and warm hospitality!
17th century Farmhouse (see previous posting).
Just off the entrance to the farmhouse is a lovely study decorated in typical English style, bookcases crammed with books, huge chesterfield sofas, lamps and to top it all off a tray of aperatifs. You are welcome to help yourself. We went with my inlaws and it was lovely to sit in the lounge and have a drink before heading out to dinner in one of the nearby villages (the closest being Broadway with a good selection of restaurants).
I have stayed at this farmhouse a few times and it has been excellent everytime. It is a 17th century farmhouse and the rooms are fairly spacious and nicely decorated (olde worlde)
A full english breakfast is served by the host (you fill out a form to say what you want the night before). An early morning walk in the garden is lovely the view stretches across the fields and it is very quiet and peaceful, just breathe in theat fresh crisp air.
