Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire: 4 reviews and 20 photos
This was our first stop on our day out. It is a beautiful stone and thatch village which was at its best when we visited. Every cottage had its pretty garden, with hollyhocks (one of the classic flowers of the English cottage garden) in great abundance. A single inhabitant rested in a garden chair on the green, presumably waiting for the afternoon’s cricket match, but otherwise we had the village street almost to ourselves. It was so picturesque that all our cameras were clicking like mad, trying to capture all the little details that summed up this lovely spot.
While here we enjoyed a coffee in the garden of the 17th century inn, the Old Swan. The pub (attached to a hotel, the “Mill & Old Swan”) is packed with character and historic features, and the service was excellent, with the barman offering to fetch capuccinos from the hotel bar as the pub itself only had filter coffee.
