The Fleece feels more like a laidback pub with rooms than a hotel - it's part of The House of Daniel Thwaites, which owns a collection of countryside inns and hotels. Set in a Grade II listed coaching inn dating back to 1651, with interiors blending 17th-century architecture (bare stone walls; oakwood ceiling beams) and contemporary comforts. Interestingly, King Charles II is thought to have used the building as a hiding place when he fled from Oliver Cromwell's New Model Army.


Service is friendly and laidback, with a young team of staff eager to help. The reception area is a discreet affair, with a desk tucked away at the back of the building (you'll have to walk through the bar to reach the reception and rooms). Being a historic building, facilities are limited to a restaurant and bar with tables lining a narrow courtyard in summer.
