A quintessential English pub owned by The National Trust

The Fleece Inn is the perfect rural retreat, just a stone's throw from the beautiful Cotswolds in Shakespeare's England.

Boasting roaring open fires for the winter months, open garden and apple orchard for the summer sun and a friendly welcome all year round, The Fleece Inn is the quintessential English pub!

With real ales and traditional ciders aplenty, this historical pub is a favourite with CAMRA members and the welcoming atmosphere and good food attract visitors from all over the world.

Why not spend the night too...? The Master's Bedroom above the pub is a cosy and romantic B&B, or alternatively stay in Moongazer, the traditional gypsy caravan situated in the orchard and glamp in style! Visit the website for more details. 

Across the courtyard from the pub, the mediaeval thatched barn is a unique and rustic venue for weddings, parties and hosts regular music concerts.

Take a virtual tour and see this beautiful pub for yourself.
