Stayed for two nights in this really unique place. We had one of the apartments in the windmill itself, beautifully presented with everything you need for a self catering breakfasts. The new owners are a great family who are carrying out upgrades to put their stamp on the place. It's fantastic now but I'm sure with their enthusiasm and ideas...

Scarborough is one of our favourite places, we have visited for the past 40 plus years and we didn't know there was a windmill!! My husband booked the break for my birthday and what a lovely place to stay. The Windmill is set in a beautiful courtyard, surrounded by a quiet residential area, about a five/ten minute walk from the...

Set in the centre of town, this is a previously working mindmill now made into an apartment consisting of 1 bedroom and an upstairs kitchen diner. With stylish and comfy decor this was definately home from home and the quirkiness of it only contributed to the overall loveliness of it. I loved it from the moment I set eyes on...

I adored The Windmill! It's set off a road less than three minutes from the train station and owned by two of the loveliest people you will ever meet. Nicola and Andy are wonderful.

If you are expecting a windmill on a grassy hill top this is not it! This windmill is situated amongst the terraced houses of Scarborough and set back some 20 minutes walk from the sea front and 10 minutes from town. It is set in a beautiful courtyard, an oasis of loveliness. When we turned the corner of Mill Street...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Windmill, just a 5 minute walk from the bustling town centre of Scarborough, its busy railway station and close to the iconic Stephen Joseph Theatre which hosts regular plays and concerts throughout the year. The Windmill, is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and is the last remaining windmill in Scarborough offering quality self-catering and bed & breakfast accommodation with limited free parking. We have three king-size four poster rooms overlooking the courtyard and 2 lovely Suites in The Windmill itself; the Balcony Suite, for adventurous adults with a head for heights, and the lower Windmill Madeline Suite which is more spacious. We also have two single storey cottages in the courtyard, one cater for up to 5 people and the other for 4 people. So the choice is yours - you can cater for yourselves or be catered for with a hearty breakfast in The Windmill. ... more   less
