There’s something for everyone at Minster Mill: from nature walks and cycling, to tennis and croquet, to a whole mile of superb fishing banks. Or some serious me-time at the Garden Spa, with pampering Espa treatments and a relaxing indoor plunge pool.
Minster Mill is set in 65 magical acres of land alongside the River Windrush … you’ll find glorious gardens, luxuriant wild-flower meadows, peaceful woodland — all ready to explore. Produce from our vegetable gardens is likely to be on your plate when you eat in the restaurant.
The hotel has a mile of private fishing banks, with slow and fast water for exceptionally good fly and coarse fishing. We can create bespoke fishing packages for experienced rods, with a ghillie to make sure everything runs smoothly.
There are plenty of scenic bike rides around Minster Mill, including three recommended routes, ranging from 10 to 30 miles, which we’ve mapped out for guests. Pashley bicycles are available to hire (£10 for four hours or £15 for eight hours), along with a helmet, lock and puncture repair kit.
Our lawns are perfect for a spot of croquet, boules and badminton. Just ask at reception and they’ll get you kitted out with all the necessary equipment. We also have a hard tennis court and a tennis pavilion complete with table tennis table, if you fancy something a little less energetic.
Take time out to relax mind and body in our Garden Spa, a peaceful haven surrounded by nature. As well as the blissful indoor heated plunge pool, we offer a poolside rock sauna, sensory aroma steam room, ice fountain and tropical rain forest showers … guaranteed to leave you feeling clean and serene.
At Minster Mill, we are delighted to welcome well-behaved dogs. Several of our Garden Rooms are dog-friendly, with easy access to the riverbank and picturesque garden walks. Your canine companion will be welcomed with a dog bed, water bowl and dog treat on arrival in your bedroom.
