Boston Flour Mill is the ideal setting for a fun-filled, romantic break with a eye-catchingly memorable difference!  

An early 19th century windmill, Boston Flour Mill is beautifully positioned on a canal, within easy walking distance to the historic market town of Boston.  You’ll find your cosy apartment for two on the first floor; a stunning bolthole that features authentic curved walls, beamed ceilings and wooden floors for a real sense of historic luxury.

Finished to an exceptionally high standard, you’ll occasionally hear gentle rumblings in the apartment when milling takes place.  This is a truly original feature of staying in a working mill, and a reminder that while the mill itself works hard in the background, you can get on with relaxing…complete with a thoughtful grocery basket, packed with mill-made delights that include fresh bread and porridge.

The welcoming, open plan lounge and dining area is the perfect place to catch up on life, or your favourite TV shows – whichever you prefer.  A range cooker with gas hob and oven makes an easy job of preparing plenty of romantic feasts, while a dishwasher makes an easy job of clearing up afterwards!

A cosy king-sized bedroom features a comfy bed dressed in crisp linen, and the bathroom is built for indulgence, with a stunning exposed brick wall and free-standing roll top bath, just waiting to be filled to the brim with bubbles.

By day, why not lounge around in your holiday home for a while, indulging in the traditional board games thoughtfully provided by the apartment’s friendly owners, James and Richard?

You’ll find James and Richard are also fully equipped with tales of local history for those interested in the mill’s background, as well as plenty of helpful suggestions and recommendations to help make your stay complete!  There is a pub, along with local shops and restaurants within walking distance, perfect for stocking up on amenities and enjoying a local tipple.
