About Minster Mill

Minster Mill is the latest addition to the Andrew Brownsword Hotel collection, AA Hotel Group of the Year for 2017-18.

Located just 15 miles from the dreaming spires of Oxford and 11 miles from the inspiring Blenheim Palace, the charming Cotswold stone buildings and barns are flanked by 65 acres of idyllic grounds set in the picture-perfect Oxfordshire village of Minster Lovell.

They’ve just finished the final stages of a major refurbishment programme, taking in all the bedrooms and public spaces and creating an impressive new hotel restaurant and bar.

The magical gardens, lush wildflower meadows and woodland come alive during the summer months, with fishing, walking, croquet and tennis on the menu. When temperatures drop, the hearty food, cosy interiors and roaring log fires provide a welcome, hospitable haven.

With impressive vaulted ceilings and original oak beams, The three AA rosette Mill Restaurant & Bar provides a wonderfully atmospheric backdrop for exceptional seasonal food and drink.

Wash away your worries in this tranquil haven, set in the heart of landscaped grounds. Highlights include a plunge pool, rock sauna, aroma steam room, ice fountain and tropical rain forest showers.


Love is in the air at Minster Mill. Cotswold stone buildings perched in enchanting riverside gardens and wildflower meadows, with magnificent food and service. It’s hard to imagine a more serene, romantic setting.

Good to know

Minster Mill now sits separately from its sister hotel, the Old Swan - a quintessential country inn, although guests are welcome to explore and use the facilities of both properties.
