We love England. We love the Cotswolds. We love The Wheatsheaf Inn. A boutique countryside hotel in the beautiful surroundings of the British countryside.
Imagine Bridget Jones meets The Holiday. Cute villages, cozy pubs and old cottages. The quaint English countryside never disappoints. Beautiful florals and gorgeous daffodils in Spring, lush green hills in the Summer, colourful ivy in Autumn, and frosty mornings and bright snowdrops in Winter. All picture perfect to unwind from the hustle and bustle of busy London life.
The Wheatsheaf Inn is a former coaching inn that turned into a traditional and contemporary chique hotel and pub restaurant. There are fourteen bedrooms, a hotel restaurant and bar and a beer garden in the idyllic surroundings of the village Northleach.
The bedrooms have everything you need; heavenly double beds with a roll top bath and dreamy room service for freshly brewed coffees and a newspaper in the morning. Breakfast is perfect. There is a small continental buffet and you can order anything from the à la carte menu; from soldier eggs to the full English or pancakes galore.
The Wheatsheaf Inn is part of the Lucky Onion Group. Make sure to checkout their website if you also want to stay at any of the other dreamy design led hotels. More information at the bottom of this blog post.
Address: West Road, Cheltenham GL54 3EZ, United Kingdom
