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.

    A fab venue for a planned girls weekend away to celebrate our 40th birthdays. A unique place set in the heart of a lovely little town.

    We had a fantastic family holiday here - a really great place, very idiosyncratic, but all in great order and very comfortable, with all mod cons.

    After visiting with a group of friends - we had a fantastic weekend. There was everything you could possibly need in the kitchen etc. Bedrooms were great size - overall experience was brilliant and would definitely come back again. Liz the owner was great - met us on arrival to greet us and answered any questions we had. Would recommend.

    Beautiful and unique property, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The windmill is in a great location just walking distance from Wendover with all the shops, pubs and restaurants easily accessible. Lovely country walks all nearby. Would definitely go to the windmill again it was great for a group of friends to stay in. Owner very friendly and helpful.

    Lovely property. Beautifully restored. Very comfortable with great facilities. The owner was so friendly and helpful. Our visit was an excellent experience for all. The website photos don't do the windmill justice. Rooms are very spacious. We would definitely visit again.

    We go away with friends every year and this was one of our favourites. The place is fantastic, really well decorated and equipped, it felt so homely. It was so wonderful it was decorated for Christmas too. The village is so nice with lots of pubs and walks so close you don't have to get in the car! The only thing is it would have been nice to have another double bed that I thought it would be but that's only a tiny thing. Would go back for definite
