Huge ‘wow factor’.

Fantastic, unique property with huge ‘wow factor’. I took a group of friends away to celebrate my 50th Birthday and a great time was had by all! The windmill offers everything you need for a short break, is beautifully appointed and decorated and offered ample space for a party of 40-odd guests. I’m sure we’ll stay here again.
