The 5-star Old Swan & Minster Mill couldn't be more quintessentially English. At the heart of the Old Minster village and with a history going back almost 600 years, this is the perfect spot to escape the city and explore the Cotswolds, or alternatively, to simply relax, spa and dine. The Old Swan captures the charm of bygone years, with a good measure of modern convenience, and the laid-back atmosphere of a gastro-pub inspired dining room and log-fired bar thrown in for good measure. Next door at the Minster Mill, you’ll find a slightly less posh country-cousin. A bit of an upstart; funky modern rooms, smaller and without the history but all with the familiar style and personal touches that the de Savary Family cram in by the bucket-load.
With over 600 years of history, the 16 beamed guestrooms and suites at the Old Swan are nothing less than pure romance. Luxury fabrics, fine linens, comfort and restrained good taste are watch-words here. Modern bathrooms add to the overall relaxed and comfortable air. In your Special room, enjoy a king bed along with modern conveniences such as Wi-Fi, DDI telephones and flat screen TVs.
Garden Rooms are designed in an eco-friendly country-contemporary style. Furnished with chic fabrics and quality fittings, all have modern ensuite bathrooms. Expect modern conveniences such as Wi-Fi, DDI telephones and flat screen TVs.
The Old Swan’s dining rooms and bars are a myriad of smaller heavily beamed, cosy quarters with roaring log fires, rugged flag-stone floors contrasted by quirky decorations. Expect superb fresh local ingredients crafted into hearty dishes served with gusto and panache.
In addition to the well equipped fitness room and treatment rooms, the state-of-the-art Windrush Spa will open in mid-2015, overlooking the River Windrush. The new Spa will have an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, sauna, steam and a full range of specialist treatments and sunbathing terraces.
