Full description

The perfect romantic escape, in an historic Oxfordshire building that features 360-degree rural views.

Standing proudly in rural Oxfordshire, The Windmill at Blackthorn Hill cuts a grandly historic dash.

The characterful Grade II listed building was once known as the East Mill, and dates all the way back to the seventeenth century.  

Now newly and superbly renovated, there are plenty of original features to marvel at, with contemporary additions that allow you to enjoy 360-degree views of three different counties...without leaving the comfort of your windmill.

Accommodation is generously spaced over three floors, with your unusual entrance a grass roof that leads up to the ensuite bedroom. Here you'll find an irresistibly cosy double bed, along with toasty heating and a TV (mandatory for long lie-ins!)

Head up the spiral stairs to the fitted kitchen, perfectly equipped with everything you'll need to whip up a procession of romantic meals. You'll even find a dishwasher, to help make clearing up afterwards nice and easy.

But the real jewel in The Windmill's crown is the stunning top floor living space. You'll find it equipped with cosy sofas positioned in front of a large TV, a generous dining space...

...and of course, those magnificent rural views, from windows that stretch all the way around the building.

We recommend getting up as early as you can, making a steaming mug of coffee and seeing if you can spot any grazing deer. You may also see red kites soaring over the landscape, too - and don't forget those awe-inspiring sunsets (tip: bring your camera).

As if all that wasn't enough, there's plenty to keep you occupied in the local area. For starters, Bicester Village, otherwise known as the UK's largest shopping outlet, is a mere stone's throw away.

If shopping leaves you cold, a 25-minute drive will take you into the culture-steeped city of Oxford, and there are plenty of heritage sites to pay a visit to, including Warwick Castle and the ornate Waddesdon Manor House.

(Though confirmed petrol heads may prefer a trip to nearby Silverstone instead!)

However you decide to spend your holiday time, feel free to indulge and enjoy it all to your hearts' content. Relax, safe in the knowledge that your romantic rural windmill will be waiting to welcome you at the end of another action-packed day.
