We have moved out of the city to enjoy life in the country. We grow our own vegetables and have hens. Travel is a major interest.
Loved our stay in the windmill. Very beautiful surroundings and an amazing building.
Wonderful location and very friendly hosts. After very stressful days at work this was a perfect location to get away from it all. Katie and Chris were very welcoming and shared their unique home with us, even taking us to a local quiz night on the first evening :)
Our room was located on the 4th floor, I had thought it might be cramped but we were both very pleasantly surprised, great wet room too! The top floor will be ideal if they let it out for rentals with domed roof and 4 windows looking onto rolling countryside.
On arrival we were given tea an cake in the summerhouse where we were greeted by the resident and curious chickens :) Breakfasts were fabulous with everything you could want, we felt very spoilt that week. Thank you both for such a perfect break, never been to this area before and will return, great landscapes ... and real ales!
Kate and her partner were very hospitable hosts and the house is amazing. Perched at the top of a restored windmill the room one stays in is nice and cosy. The house has a massive kitchen and an amazing round living room. It's in a very quiet location off the beaten path in a typically English Country village. Lovely restful. Nice walks. Great friendly people. Would highly recommend.
Un lugar increíble, recomendable 1000%
Los dueños de casa son muy amables y
Muchas gracias por recibirnos!
We had a great short stay in Croxton at this fantastic converted windmill. Kate and Chris were extremely friendly and hospitable, and could not have provided a better and welcoming stay. It was really lovely seeing that this place wasn't only their B&B, but also their home, and this created a wonderful relaxed feeling to the whole stay.
The area of Croxton is beautiful and would highly recommend to anyone.
We had an absolute ball with Kate and Chris and really regret that we did not stay for longer. You could not meet a nicer couple. The windmill was a fantastic place to stay, the room was fantastic with a great bed and fabulous views. Kate was absolutely fantastic when we were running late and gave us great directions over the phone. We are novice travellers in the UK and put in the wrong address and ended up in another Croxton some 85 miles away. Hint for travellers in the UK double check what you program into your sat nav. If we come back to the UK we will definitely have Kate's windmill correctly entered into our sat av for another visit. Pam & Garry
We had a such fabulous stay with Chris and Kate who made us feel instantly at home and were interesting and very friendly hosts. Chris came to look for us when we got lost on the way back from the pub, how lovely is that ? Breakfast was beautifully prepred and the room a delight. Will definately go back.
Great people, great place!
We had an excellent stay in this windmill. Lovely place, and lovely hosts too. Recommended.
It was great to stay in the Windmill for the unique experience it affords and also to enjoy the views of the lush countryside from a high vantage point. More than that, however, it was great to stay with Chris and Kate. They are lovely, engaging, interesting people. On several occasions I found myself running behind schedule as I couldn't pull myself away from wonderful conversations.
Stay in a bland hotel if you wish but I would highly recommend Kate and Chris's windmill (near the little village of Eccleshall) as a more fulfilling alternative ( ... as long as you have a car).
Kate and Chris were great guests - friendly, interesting, relaxed, appreciative and couldn't have been nicer. 5 stars all round and I hope they'll come again one day!
We loved having Kate and Chris with us. Such thoughtful guests doing their own breakfast dishes every morning. Thank You for choosing HideAway Haven as the place to celebrate your birthday and honeymoon. We enjoyed knowing they were in the Jacuzzi every night, that our beds were so comfy for them and that our breakfasts kept them going all day. Would love to visit their windmill one day
