Luxurious, distinctive and often admired, The Windmill in Wendover is an extraordinary find. With an iconic design and five exclusive floors, it is a gorgeous home that you’ll love to explore. Uncover its quirky features and its fascinating rooms, soaking up the magnificent vistas and the lush, garden blooms. With the dramatic Chiltern Hills rolling far off into the distance, you can plan out your country days and head out for adventure.
The once working Windmill dates back to the 1800’s and has a towering, brick façade with striking, hexagonal walls. Now happily retired and with its sails removed, it’s been lovingly updated to blend old with new. Elaborate carved antiques lie casually amongst the rooms, beside hand-painted ceramics and vintage, leather sofas. Rustic timber beams are part of its long-standing heritage and are joined by modern, slate floors and a classic colour palette.
The comfortable living areas are spread across two floors and include little nooks and crannies and large open spaces. Cook a hearty, family breakfast in the modern, country kitchen, sitting down to sip your coffee at the farmhouse dining table. Head up to the second floor and you’ll find a warm and cosy lounge, where you can curl up on rainy days and look out over the town.
Five sumptuous bedrooms can be found dotted around the windmill and include two doubles, two twins and a lovely single bedroom. Each of the stylish rooms has a chic, neutral finish, boasting crisp, white walls and sophisticated furnishings. Pad on the thick faux fur rugs or wrap up in the plush, designer bedding, before enjoying a steamy shower in the deluxe, family bathrooms. The sweet single room even has an additional pull-out bed, making this a spacious hideout for groups of up to ten.
Located in a residential street in the pretty town of Wendover, The Windmill is a wonderful base for exploring the local area. Stroll through the historic streets and spot their picture-perfect, thatched cottages, before donning your walking boots and heading out into the hillsides. Discover the famous Ridgeway Path or head deep into the woodlands, strolling through wildflower meadows and up the stunning Chiltern Hillsides. For more relaxed days, sit out in your peaceful, landscaped garden, lighting up the barbeque and dining al fresco.
