Click for larger pictureThe Fleece Inn is a quintessential English country Inn located in the village of Bretforton, to the east of Evesham.

The Inn, a grade II listed building, dates from the 16th Century and is timber framed with a Cotswold stone and part thatched roof.

It was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1978 together with an important collection of 17th century pewter and largely 18th century furniture.

The Inn is physically at the heart of the village as well as being a hub of its life. It also enjoys a much wider, international reputation and draws visitors not only from the United Kingdom but also abroad, particularly from the United States and Japan.

The Inn suffered a major fire in 2004, which destroyed the roof, first floor and the southern end of the building.
