Hidden away amongst the trees on the hillside above the town is the stump of Bradford's one and only windmill which still forms a prominent, if rather eccentric, landmark with spectacular views over historic Bradford on Avon and the surrounding countryside.

The ornate Victorian spiral staircase, pointed Gothic windows and the four storey Cotswold stone tower with its conical stone tiled roof, are features more reminiscent of a folly. However the building had a short spell in the 19th Century as a windmill and still has an oak sail gallery as a reminder of its industrial past.

There are 2 double rooms all with en-suite bathrooms: FANTAIL suite which can be used as a family room with a gallery space for children between 6 & 12, accessed by ladder and a separate sitting room. GREAT SPUR a round room in the windmill tower has a king-size round bed and a whirlpool bath.

An imaginative breakfast menu is included and adapts to all tastes - carnivore, vegetarian and vegan. For those who do not wish to walk five minutes to the local pubs and restaurants, a home made bread & soup tray can be served in the evening.

Longleat Safari Park, Stonehenge and the historic city of Bath are nearby and Bradford on Avon has good bus and train connections.
