Andrew Brownsword Hotels acquires Old Swan & Minster Mill in the Cotswolds

Andrew Brownsword Hotels, a collection of privately owned hotels in the UK, is in the process of acquiring the Old Swan & Minster Mill in the Cotswolds following a private sale between the de Savary family and Andrew and Christina Brownsword. The contracts have been signed, and the property is slated to become the 13th hotel in the collection.

The hotel has been owned by the de Savary family for the last six years, and is being transferred from one family hotelier to another. The inn will continue to operate as usual for the immediate future.

Andrew Brownsword Hotels was founded in 1994 with the purchase of the Bath Priory Hotel. The acquisition of the Old Swan & Minster Mill follows the group’s most recent purchase of its three existing Cotswolds properties; Buckland Manor, The Slaughters Manor House and The Slaughters Country Inn, and Amberley Castle in Sussex, all acquired in 2011 following the collapse of the Von Essen group.
