A five-star chocolate-box country stay with plush country-style decor in the Cotswolds, including breakfast and three-course a la carte dinner

Located in the traditional village of Minster Lovell in the Cotswolds, the quintessentially English, five-star Old Swan & Minster Mill is rural England at its best. Providing the perfect spot for country pursuits, you'll be playing croquet, watching cricket or casting a rod in the river in no time at this 15th-century inn, set among wild flower meadows.

Overlooking the trickling waters of River Windrush, Old Swan & Minster Mill offers boutique, timber-framed respite from urban life. After lunch on the terrace, while away the afternoon with a soothing ESPA spa treatment or a long river walk, and seek respite in the comfort of your country-themed, ultra-plush and elegant room. With all this mind, it's no surprise the hotel carried off a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
