Why Not Stay in a Windmill Hotel?
The windmill hotel may offer one of the most unusual hotel experiences, while the windmill is one of the UK’s favourite heritage buildings, there are relatively few windmills in fully restored condition which double up as a hotel. Here are some of the UK’s best windmill conversions:
– Located at Cley-next-the-sea near Holt in Norfolk, this is one of the country’s best preserved windmills converted into a hotel.
The hotel offers a variety of rooms spanning three stories and giving views across the Norfolk flats. If considering booking this hotel, plan well ahead, rooms tend to book up months in advance.
– Why not combine a windmill experience with a seaside holiday?
The windmill at Scarborough offers the opportunity to stay in an 18th century mill complete with rooms boasting four poster beds and all just 5 minutes walk from the centre of the seaside resort.
Sarre Windmill, Kent
– A snug little affair with just one bedroom sleeping two, this may be the ultimate in romantic retreats for the windmill lover. The mill is fully restored including sails and offers an ideal base for exploring the North Kentish coast line.
Splash Windmill, Wraybury
– This is a rental property and just a short distance from Heathrow airport. The mill is a restored wooden affair compleat with both main and rear sails. Minimum stay is 2 nights outside of the winter season and prices start at £840 per week with accommodation for up to six people in three rooms.
