We spent one night at Wheelwrights but wished we could've stayed longer. Our room had everything we needed - a lovely spacious ensuite and especially liked the fresh milk in a flask rather than the awful uht portions. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the room was very quiet. We enjoyed a very relaxed breakfast overlooking the garden....

We stayed at Wheelwrights after being let down by The White Horse Inn. Gill was very gracious, and booked a cab etc so we were not late for the wedding! The breakfast was fantastic, all fresh produce and very well cooked. Comfy beds, spotlessly clean, and quiet! Would recommend this place very highly!
