Simply known as The Windmill, this historic accommodation has been fully renovated to provide couples a quirky romantic getaway. Each circular room across the five cosy floors provides panoramic views overlooking the quaint village and unspoilt green spaces.

Other amenities included a fully-equipped kitchen, wifi, bedroom, access to a garden and a lookout up on the fifth floor.

Breakfast is also included with the cupboard stocked with fresh free range eggs, milk and home made jams on arrival.

Situated in the village of Edlesborough, Buckinghamshire, the windmill was built around 1790, meaning the building has seen nine British monarchs rule.

Speaking of the Royal Family, this staycation site is the perfect location for those wanting to plan a historic day out around some of the most famous royal homes.

Windsor Castle is a 70-minute drive away, and is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, standing for almost 1,000 years.

The ancient fortress has featured many royal occasions in recent years, with Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank both married in 2019 respectively.

Earlier this year, the castle is where Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, died just two months before his 100th birthday and later his funeral.

Travelling in the other direction in less than 30 minutes to London Euston station, visitors can also visit Buckingham Palace for a tour around the 19 state rooms which run until September 19.

There is also the first time in the Palace’s history to walk around the 39 acres of palace gardens and enjoy a picnic location like no other.

Those who prefer spending their holiday closer to their on-site accomodation, Dunstable Downs and Woburn Abbey are close by and the National Trust Ashridge Woods.

Arguably another standout feature to stay at The Windmill is the chance to take up wild swimming around the surrounding lakes.

More suited to strong swimmers, guests are warned they enter at their own risks.

Owner of the The Windmill and Airbnb superhost Lizzie, said that it was her father who bought the former derelict working building.

She said: “The Windmill remained derelict until my father bought it. It was a ten year project to restore the Windmill. It is unusual to find a Windmill and Watermill together which we have.

“The Sails blew off in a bad storm a few years back. Parts of the Watermill are Elizabethan and then the Victorian’s added to it.”

With 4.97 stars out of five on AirBnb, it’s clear to see that Lizzie’s secluded abode has been a hit with several guests.

One review reads: “My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the windmill. It was the perfect break, with the windmill being great for days out and in.

“The grounds are lovely to walk through and as long as you have no problem with stairs there is nothing to fault the property, even with a very young baby.”

Another person said: “The windmill is really lovely and unique accommodation. Lizzie was so friendly and helpful throughout our stay and ensured that we had a relaxing break.

“There is a variety of places to visit nearby, we only had a couple of days and chose to visit ZSL Whipsnade, Tring and College Lakes nature reserve all of which were a short drive away.”

Plenty of dates still available to book in September and October for a last-minute getaway at The Windmill, for £140 per night.
