Andrew Brownsword Hotels establishes Minster Mill as standalone hotel after £4.5m revamp


Minster Mill in the Cotswolds is to operate as a standalone hotel when it reopens in March following a £4.5m refurbishment.

Owned and operated by Andrew Brownsword Hotels, the launch of Minster Mill on March 11 will see the business operate separately from sister property, The Old Swan.

The Old Swan and Minster Mill was acquired as one property by Brownsword in 2016.

Set within a 20th century mill, the new property has been designed by owners Andrew and Christina Brownsword, working alongside architect Simon Morray-Jones. 

Each of the 38 bedrooms have been individually designed and are home to L’Occitane products.

A new restaurant will also open, with the kitchen headed up by 2017 Masterchef semi-finalist Tom Moody, who was previously at The Slaughters Manor House, another property part of the Brownsword portfolio.

The Garden Spa at Minster Mill was originally opened in 2016 and provides ESPA treatments with three treatment rooms, alongside an indoor heated plunge pool, poolside rock sauna, aroma steam room, ice fountain and tropical rain forest showers.

The Old Swan, located across the road from Minster Mill, is to now operate as a ‘quintessential country inn’.  

The Andrew Brownsword Hotels portfolio comprises iconic hotels including Gidleigh Park, Amberley Castle and the Bath Priory, as well as properties within the Abode city centre brand.
