Description

A unique opportunity to stay in a windmill complete with spectacular views over the Chiltern Hills and within easy reach of Oxford.

Enjoy a unique holiday in this detached windmill, built around 1800, now converted to provide comfortable spacious accommodation over 5 floors with spectacular views over the Chiltern Hills from the second floor sitting room. Used as a working windmill until 1900 and then the home of an actress and a music publisher, The Windmill, now minus its sails, is located in the historic market town of Wendover. Set in a quiet location, it has an attractive enclosed rear garden.
Nestling in a gap in the Chiltern Hills the historic, picturesque market town of Wendover has a fine array of historic buildings, restaurants, shops and pubs; it also has a traditional market every Thursday. The area is blessed with a variety of walks through some of southern England’s most enjoyable countryside; the famous Ridgeway Path runs right down Wendover High Street. At nearby Coombe Hill, the highest point in the Chilterns, visitors can enjoy excellent views over the Vale of Ayesbury and the Chequers Estate, the Prime Minister’s country home. The Windmill is 18 miles from historic Oxford with its dreaming spires and famous colleges, whilst Wendover station is a 5-minute walk from The Windmill giving easy access to guests wanting a day in the capital city of London. Also conveniently located to visit Whipsnade Zoo and the Roald Dahl Museum. Shop 300 yards, pub 200 yards.

    This holiday was to celebrate a 70th birthday with family, Granny, children and 2 grandchildren. Staying in a windmill was a new experience for all of us and we were delighted with the beautiful windmill. It's layout was perfect for us and we were very impressed with the beautiful building and the cosy, welcoming atmosphere of the house. We were greeted by Mrs Griffin and were grateful for the thoughtful gift of wine,tea, milk and fresh flowers.

    We struck gold with the Windmill, it's such a beautiful house. It's been converted in the most sympathetic way to maximise space. It's confortable and had everything we could have needed. We loved it and would certainly return.

    We enjoyed a lovely family weekend in The Windmill. Our party was 9 adults and 2 babies but we did not feel cramped at all. On the first night we cooked for ourselves in the very well equipped kitchen. We could not think of anything essential which was not supplied but there were many non-essential items provided which helped to make the weekend that little bit extra special. We all loved it. The location was also ideal for accessing pubs, restaurants, the countryside and many tourist attractions. We were particularly impressed with the Budgen in the High Street, The Red Lion Wendover Woods and The Chiltern Brewery tour.

    A wonderful property. Very well equipped and furnished. The challenging room layouts compromised our comfort a little but staying in a windmill was a great experience. Sadly the last two days of our stay were spoiled by a broken boiler so no heat or hot water (the immersion wasn't working either) and this caused a real problem.

    Had a brilliant weekend. Windmill was very comfortable and suited our group perfectly, great that it was within walking distance of Wendover and local walks.

    Brilliant and unique holiday cottage. Bit surrounded now by the town, but it is a lovely town with lots of cafes and pubs. Very comortable and well set up flat. Lots of stairs :)

    Very comfortable, well equipped accommodation, properly suited for ten adults, though we were only eight - no bunk beds etc. Ample parking. An interesting place to stay; although large it felt very homely. We particularly enjoyed some of the many woodland walks in the area. We would love to stay there again sometime, health and fitness permitting.
