The Old Swan & Minster Mill is an authentic country house hotel and inn situated in the heart of the Cotswolds with 65 acres of gardens, wildflower meadows and woodland.

The setting couldn’t be more romantic if it tried and is enviably set within some of the most handsome and idyllic gardens in England. 

We can host your wedding ceremony in the Garden Temple, which is alongside the river and framed by weeping willows or in one of our beautiful, traditional function rooms. 

Afterwards enjoy a delicious wedding breakfast in the Old Swan's Minstrels' Gallery which is situated in our 600-year-old coaching inn for up to 50 guests.

For an evening reception we can host up to 40 guests in the Malthouse, which is a Cotswold stone barn situated alongside the River Windrush. We can also host up to 120 guests in a marquee on our croquet lawn.

Afterwards guests can retire to one of our luxurious bedrooms, and with 60 in total there are plenty to choose from.
