Unique detached windmill, with spectacular views over the Chiltern Hills, Wendover is within walking distance, while Oxford is nearby.

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.

    The Windmill is a delightful place. Located within walking distance of a huge choice of restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops as well as beautiful walks. Couldn't fault it. The property was spotlessly clean, incredibly well equipped. It's different from anywhere else yet has everything you need. Can't wait to go back.

    Absolutely brilliant, warm, lovely sized rooms and beds and bathrooms were excellent, the back garden was good as we had a barbeque and it was all enclosed and very private. Couldn't fault it really. Also the proprietor Liz was lovely and very helpful.

    The Windmill is a perfect place for a family weekend located in a lovely village and close to Oxford for a great day out. Just be prepared for the stairs!

    We loved the windmill. We liked the quirkiness and the set up. Plenty of bathrooms which for a group of friends was ideal. The kitchen and dining area worked really well as early breakfasters didn't wake up those on higher floors and when we had dinner we couldn't see the mess in the kitchen! The windmill was very clean. The garden looked lovely although we didn't have the weather to sit out there. Plenty of parking also made it ideal as we had 7 cars. Everyone enjoyed the visit.

    We went away with our 5 grown up children and 2 partners and this was perfect. Beautiful and unusual with plenty of space for all. Really generous quantity of loo rolls, dishwasher tabs etc (when often we have found only enough for the first night). We will certainly go back. Wish I had discovered it earlier as would be perfect for two families. Dog had a lovely time in safe garden and lovely nearby walks. Good to be able to walk to nearby restuarants and pubs, so no need for discussion over drivers. Lounge perfect for games.
