Old Swan & Minster Mill
Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire
A cosy country stay in Oxfordshire with breakfast, a three-course dinner, a spa voucher each and VIP shopping at Bicester Designer Village
Located in the traditional village of Old Minster, just outside Witney, the romantic Old Swan & Minster Mill is rural England at its most appealing. Herringbone jackets and wooly knits would look most at home at this 15th century inn, set amongst wild meadows, weeping willows and wildlife.
The Condé Nast Johansens-recommended Old Swan & Minster Mill offers boutique, timber-framed respite from urban life. Treat yourself to a generous dose of retail therapy at the nearby Bicester Village, dine on posh gastro-pub-style fare in the inn's cosy dining rooms or settle by the flickering log-fire in the country-check lounge.

The rooms are located in the Minster Mill, positioned alongside the gentle waters of the Mill-Race, overlooking the manicured gardens and meadows beyond.

The inn serves a gastro-pub style menu of fresh, local and seasonal produce. Check the board for the fish or game of the day and enjoy hearty, accomplished, Oxfordshire cuisine in a beautiful part of the property.The hotel's buffet breakfast includes a huge variety of cooked dishes and includes home produced honey comb.
The Old Swan and Minster Mill features two spa treatment rooms. The spa treatments are by Yon-Ka Paris, a brand that has attracted international acclaim from a number of glossy publications including Vogue and InStyle. A full gym is also available to work off the hotel's hearty breakfasts.
The hotel is located 30 minutes from the lovely city of Oxford and 45 minutes from upmarket Cheltenham. Bicester Village (20 minutes away) is an internationally renowned designer outlet where you can shop for top-flight, previous-season goodies. The immediate area is a dream of hedgerows, meadows, country walks and traditional pubs, so take advantage of the half-day bicycle hire and explore the scenery on two wheels. You're also close to the lovely town of Woodstock and the outstandingly beautiful Blenheim Palace - definitely a must-visit.
