Holiday in a Windmill? Quirky, maybe, but not as rustic as you might imagine…..

It’s rare to find holiday properties which are as atmospheric and historica as they are unique, but a holiday in a windmill ticks that box!  Unique holiday cottages are one thing, but windmill conversions are often graded or listed, and they are overflowing with character and stories of days gone by.   We’ve taken on a few windmill properties recently, and I for one, think they are worth shouting about!

Time and again people return to Cley Windmill, one of our most popular UK properties.  Dating from the early 18th century, Cley Windmill is a well known landmark on the North Norfolk coast.  Operating as a B&B (but available to book on an exclusive basis), it offers simply stunning views across the salt marshes and out to sea and has been sympathetically converted into a guesthouse simply oozing charm.  From £80 – £165 per room per night.

If it’s a romantic hideaway all to yourself you’re after, then Moulin85 in the Vendee region of France should do the trick.  Sleeping just two people but arranged over four floors (with a room per floor!) it is an exquisitely peaceful, rural and romantic retreat.  From £450 per week.
