Set in a rural location, perfect getaway for two. What more could you ask for. A Historical Grade II Listed Windmill with 360 degree views across 3 counties and only a stone throw away from UK’s largest shopping outlet- Bicester Village, or if shopping isn’t your thing then there’s plenty to see and do.

The space
The Windmill formally known as the East Mill dates back to circa 1700, it lost its sails around the 1900’s and then finally the copper cap was commandeered for the war effort in 1942.
Back in 1998 the Windmill was brought back to life and converted into habitable accommodation and a leaded cap was added with that panoramic view.

The current owners have just completed an amazing 3 years project creating a subbasement extension around the windmill and at the same time remodeled the top 3 floors.

So now you can shop/explore to your hearts content and come back to a comfortable, relaxing pad, take your shoes off and enjoy the views

You’ll enter the windmill via an oak door located on a grass roof and from there make your way up a stone walled stairwell to the second floor

There you will find your cosy bed with cushions /throws and on-suite bathroom, made nice and comfortable with secondary heating. So enjoy an early night or a lazy lie in while watching your favourite programs on a large 4k TV. A hairdryer is also available.

Next floor up is a lovely well-equipped kitchen with an electric hob/oven, dishwasher fridge/ice box and not forgetting a microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Everything you need to rustle up some tasty food.

The coffee maker has a selection of complimentary refills, the milk is in the fridge and condiments are in the cupboard.

One more floor to the top and you arrive at the wow factor, a lounge with a 360 degree panoramic views across three counties. Furnished with two comfortable sofas, coffee table and dinning table just for the two of you. The sunsets are incredible and once dusk is upon you there is a large 4k TV or plenty of board games to keep you occupied.

If you’re up early and lucky enough you can see deer grazing in the farmers field and later in the day Red Kites are frequently seen flying around the top of the Windmill.
