This popular attraction, the National Arboretum, is less than four miles from The Fleece, housing an internationally important tree and shrub collection that is managed by the Forestry Commission.

It is a fantastic place to visit all year round, but is especially spectacular in the autumn.  Open air concerts are staged there frequently.
The Cotswold Way

The Cotswold Way is a 102 mile (164 Km) long-distance footpath running along the Cotswold Edge escarpment of the Cotswold Hills.  It was officially inaugurated as a National Trail in 2007. 

The route passes through the parish of Hillesley & Tresham, within a mile of The Fleece, making our pub a popular stop off point along the trail.
Badminton Horse Trials
Badminton Horse Trials
In April or May each year Badminton plays host to the world famous three-day event that has been run since 1949, having been inspired by the 1948 Olympics.

Together with the four-star rated Rolex Kentucky Three Day and the Burghley Horse Trials, Badminton forms the Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing. The only person ever to win the Grand Slam is Pippa Funnell.

The cross country day at Badminton attracts crowds of up to a quarter of a million, which are the largest for any paid-entry sport event in the United Kingdom, and the second largest in the world (after the Indianapolis 500).

Badminton is about five miles from The Fleece.
