"The genteel, picture-postcard Cotswolds village of Old Minster does seem like stepping into a different world" says The Daily Mail.
Located within the village, Old Swan & Minster Mill consists of two adjoining properties on the River Windrush. Old Swan is a 15th-century hotel with 16 bedrooms, while Minster Mill is a former conference centre that now offers guest rooms. Reception is at Minster Mill.
Rooms at the Old Swan have beamed ceilings, wooden furniture and modern bathrooms. Minster Mill rooms are designed in an eco-friendly, contemporary style, and all overlook the gardens and meadows, while some also offer views of the River Windrush and have outdoor terraces and log-burners. Each room has a decanter of sloe gin, and Wi-Fi is free.
Old Swan serves gastro pub-style food made using fresh, local ingredients. Guests can dine outdoors in the gardens in the warmer months or cosy up to a roaring fire indoors the rest of the year.
A pet-friendly hotel, Old Swan & Minster Mill offers dog training and behaviour lessons at a supplement. There are over 65 acres of private gardens and wildflower meadows with paths to explore with your pooch as well. Fishing on the River Windrush is allowed (advance booking required; fee payable). The Old Swan uses hydro power harnessed from the Windrush.
