Map & Local Information

Minster Lovell is a village approx 5 miles to the east of Burford and roughly 15/20 minutes to the west of Oxford. Although set on the edge of the village, Grooms's is within a close distance to a couple of pubs and a simple village shop/post office selling the basics. The village is roughly split into two sections with the 'Old Minster Lovell' set aside the River Windrush and amongst some simply gorgeous surroundings. There are historically significant ruins on the edge of the village - specifically Minster Lovell Hall, the 15th century home of Lord Lovell, a powerful associate of King Richard III. 

Old Minster Lovell has a good gastro-pub, and there are several public houses to choose from in the local area. The look of the old village is typical of the Cotswolds with picturesque thatched cottages, stone buildings and a beautiful cricket club. This is a truly English village! The market town of Witney with many shops and supermarkets is about 2 miles away, where there is a cinema, plus a growing collection of quality shops to choose from.

Oxford, and its 'dreaming spires' plus many attractions is approx 20 minutes drive away, accessed easily from Groom's Cottage. We would certainly recommend a day trip if nothing else.

Otherwise, famous Cotswolds locations such as Burford, Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water and Woodstock with Blenheim Palace, are all within a short driving distance. For families, the Cotswold Wildlife Park is about 8 minutess drive away - one of the region's most popular tourist attractions and one heavily recommended.

"We had the most enjoyable stay at Groom’s Cottage. Everything we could have needed was available. The cottage was immaculate throughout and the beds and towels were very comfortable. Stuart & Tracy were very friendly. My daughter particularly enjoyed seeing the horses and hens. If we were to stay within the area again, we wouldn’t hesitate to come back."
