A chocolate-box country stay in Oxfordshire, with breakfast, a spa voucher, a Bicester Village VIP shopping card and an optional dining voucher

Located in the traditional village of Minster Lovell, just outside Witney, the scrumptious five-star Old Swan & Minster Mill is rural England at its most quaint. Cricket whites and herringbone jackets would look most at home at this 16th-century inn, set among wild flower meadows, weeping willows and purple lavender.

Overlooking the trickling waters of River Windrush, the Condé Nast Johansens-recommended Old Swan & Minster Mill offers boutique, timber-framed respite from urban life. Dine on posh gastropub-style fare in the restaurant and settle by the flickering log fire in the country-check lounge. With all this mind, it's no surprise the hotel carried off a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014.

Excellent for
Country Spa Scenery Uk and Ireland Relaxing Shopping


Cosy Minster Mill rooms are positioned alongside the gentle waters of the Mill Race, overlooking the manicured gardens and meadows beyond. They are more modern in style than the rest of the property, with shiny en-suites and high-end fabrics.


- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Direct dial phone
- Flat-screen TV


The restaurant serves a gastropub-style menu of fresh, seasonal produce. Check the board for the fish or game of the day, and enjoy accomplished Oxfordshire cuisine in a beautiful part of the property.

Wellness facilities

The hotel features treatment rooms, where you can unwind in peace with treatments by Yon-Ka Paris, a brand that has attracted international acclaim from a number of glossy publications, like Vogue and InStyle.


The hotel sits half an hour from the lovely city of Oxford and 45 minutes from upmarket Cheltenham. Bicester Village is a much talked-about designer outlet 30 minutes away, where you can shop for top-flight, previous-season goodies. The immediate area is a dream of hedgerows, meadows, country walks and traditional pubs to explore. You're also close to the lovely town of Woodstock and the outstandingly beautiful Blenheim Palace - definitely a must-see.
