Located just 15 miles from Oxford and 11 miles from Blenheim Palace, the Old Swan is nestled in 65 acres of magical gardens, wildflower meadows and woodland in the picturesque Cotswold village of Minster Lovell. This quintessentially English inn seamlessly blends the rural charm of its historic setting with contemporary design, luxurious comfort and delicious menus crafted from the finest seasonal produce.
Each of the Old Swan’s 15 charming guest rooms and suites are individual in style, epitomising the classic beauty of the rural inn. Many feature splendid views across the hotel’s scenic gardens, with others boasting spacious four-poster beds or original oak-beamed ceilings. All come with crisp white linen, dreamy beds and contemporary bathrooms with L’Occitane skincare and bath lotions.
The Old Swan’s dining rooms are a myriad of beamed, cosy quarters with roaring log fires and rugged flagstone floors. Expect fresh local ingredients crafted into hearty dishes; this is the perfect place to enjoy a pie and a pint by the fireside, or a salad on the terrace in the summer. The menu is seasonal and the food is simple, hearty and flavoursome with delicious items available all day.
Set in 65 acres of idyllic grounds, there is plenty to explore and ample places to relax in peace. There are a range of facilities and amenities available, from nature walks and cycling, to tennis and croquet, and a mile of private fishing banks.
