Better than most 5 star hotels
Brilliant hosts, Great food, Stunning views and Totally unique
What more can we say - The best B&B we have ever stayed at
Would totally recommend to everyone and anyone
We never actually met Kate Hallam, but her husband, Chris, made us very welcome. The venue was excellent with marvellous views over the surrounding countryside of Staffordshire and beyond - well worth the 4 flights of stairs.
wow what a fantastic time we had at the windmill. Kate and Chris made us feel so welcome. It was a brilliant night away so relaxing so peaceful really enjoyable cant wait to go back. We ate like kings at breakfast every whim was catered for cannot fault Kate and Chris WONDERFUL.
Chris and Kate made us feel very welcome. Chris welcomed us in and showed us around the windmill and made us a drink to have on the veranda. We were also welcomed by the chickens which roam around the property! The views were amazing and we had everything we could possibly need. Chris also booked us a table at the local pub for food that evening.
We had a fantastic stay in the lovely windmills 'Music Room' for two nights, hosted by Chris and Kate. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival (despite arriving late) and during our stay.
Breakfast was delicious and very nicely arranged by Chris.
The house and room were very homely and comfortable. We enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended.
This is a truly unique location. We stayed in the room at the top of the windmill, with stunning panoramic views on the surrounding countryside. All aspects of the experience, from the the dug-in landing to the winding staircases, the acoustics under the cupola and the sound of the wind strumming the tower at night, sets this apart from any other place we've ever stayed at before. The interior decoration is very classy and no detail is left unattended. We've booked this for a special occasion and couldn't be more happy on how it turned out!
We really enjoyed our stay. Kate and Chris were very welcoming. We stayed in the 'music room' at the very top of the windmill which was decorated beautifully. The room was amazing with fantastic views. Breakfast was fabulous with a choice of fruits, juice, cereal and fresh eggs (the hosts keep their own chickens!) and so we had scrambled eggs on toast. It was lovely and peaceful. We would thoroughly recommend the windmill as a place to stay.
The windmill is the most unique place we've stayed in - Kate and Chris are great hosts, very warm and welcoming and great for a chat. The music room has a beautiful country view, it's very comfortable - feels very bright and airy, such a nice feel to it.
We spent some time sitting outside on the deck with tea which was very peaceful, the countryside is lovely - the whole property is amazing!
Kate & Chris recommended a great place for dinner called the Swan with Two Necks which was only a short drive away, and Kate made us an amazing home-cooked breakfast the next morning. The whole stay was great, it's such a treat!
Ask them about the history of the windmill - very interesting!
We (2 couples) stayed in both rooms at the Windmill on Easter Sunday. The building is amazing, the gardens and views are great and the bedrooms were perfect. Kate had applied all the little touches; bottles of water, wifi codes, booklets on the area. Kate and Chris went out for the day so we had the 'run of the place' and we got to know the chickens and enjoy some unexpected good weather. We used the kitchen to cook our evening meal and the kitchen had everything we needed. We then headed upstairs and watched netflix on the Apple TV for an hour before going to our rooms. The music room on the top floor is something special and I highly recommend. The next morning Kate and Chris made breakfast and what a fantastic spread they put on. We even got to sample the eggs which had been laid that morning. I highly recommend Kate as a host and the Windmill as a place to stay if you see in the area.
Superb place to stay. I can definitely see us staying again in the future.
It was a real pleasure to meet Kate and her husband when they stayed in The Hay Store at the weekend. Kate is a great communicator who stayed in touch via messaging before the booking. They were really pleasant to chat with on arrival and departure and I greatly appreciated their efforts to leave The Hay Store clean and tidy before they went; perfect guests! Most welcome back!
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
