Full description
A stunning former working mill steeped in history and romance, featuring breathtaking views over the Chiltern Hills.

A magical setting for families looking to reconnect and truly restore the wind in their sails, The Windmill, found in the charming picture-book town of Wendover, is perfectly nestled at the foot of the refreshingly tranquil Chiltern Hills.

Built in 1800, the detached building was a grand working windmill for over a century, before becoming a beloved home to an actress and a music publisher in the early twentieth century. Fast-forward to the present day, and The Windmill has been lovingly converted, to provide elegant and comfortable accommodation for up to ten people, plus two well-behaved dogs.

Spread over five octagonal floors and featuring stunning architecture that includes beautiful beamed ceilings and wooden flooring, you will find The Windmill exquisitely furnished, not to mention fully equipped with a cosy array of contemporary home comforts.

The ground-floor entrance hall leads you to a spacious dining room and well-furnished kitchen with a slate-floored breakfast area... the perfect spot to congregate over morning coffee and discuss your plans for the day!   

Head to the first floor, where you'll find beautifully beamed, cosy twin and double bedrooms, along with a handy wet room.  

A warmly welcoming living area awaits you on the second floor, complete with squishy sofas to complement that book you've been meaning to curl up with for ages, while on the third floor you'll find two single bedrooms (one with an additional pull-out bed if required), together with a roomy, tiled bathroom with shower over.

The fourth floor houses a stylish double master bedroom, complete with dressing room and en-suite shower.

Later on, head outside to the gorgeously green enclosed garden, complete with furniture, and while away many an afternoon discussing life, love and everything in between with your family!

You'll soon discover that your location is perfect for exploring the traditional market town of Wendover, with its exquisite array of historic buildings, restaurants and independent shops... not to mention plenty of pubs for the occasional pit stop.

Walkers will rejoice in the wide variety of routes that travel through some of the very best of the Southern countryside, with the famous Ridgeway Path that runs directly through Wendover High Street.

For those hungry for even more magnificent views, nearby Coombe Hill is the highest point in the Chilterns, offering a superb vista across the Vale of Aylesbury and the Chequers Estate (also known as the Prime Minister's country home).

Those yearning for a sample of bustling city life will find their sanctuary in Oxford, just 18 miles away, while just five minutes' walk away is Wendover Station, with trains to London.

It couldn't be simpler to enjoy a reviving break with an historic twist, featuring a little something for everyone. Simply get your family together, and head straight into the refreshing Wendover country wind!
