The Property

This stunning converted windmill enjoys a rural setting in the village of Holmeswood near Burscough, providing a unique base for families and friends eager to uncover this part of Lancashire.

With accommodation laid out over 6 floors, Mill heights represents a stunning example of a Tower Windmill of brick construction with a boat-shaped wooden cap.

The building was thought to have been constructed in the 18th century before being sympathetically converted into a residential dwelling during the mid to late 1980s.

Entering on the ground floor, you are greeted by traditional flagstone flooring leading to storage for bikes and a utility room with washer/dryer, handy for when adventures take off on a muddier route.

Climb the spiral staircase to the first floor, home to the spacious open-plan living area where you can lounge and chat to the designated chef, keeping them company whilst they get to grips with a range of appliances, or prepare the dining table for a hearty feast.

On this floor, there is also a small balcony where you can enjoy the fresh summer breeze.

Venture to the second floor, where you will discover three chesterfield sofas arranged in front of a curved Smart TV, providing a lovely space to enjoy your favourite shows and movies.

Stairs lead to three further floors with a range of bedroom options, including a super-king-size, two doubles and twin, plus a bathroom and two shower rooms, ensuring you are fully equipped.

Surrounding the property is large lawned area where children can play, or take them on a 5 minute walk round the corner to the leading north west farm attraction –  Windmill Animal Farm.  Here they can feed and pet a number of furry friends, perfect for a family day out!

The village of Burscough is just over three and half miles away, offering your closest amenities including a supermarket and convenience store, along with a lovely selection of country pubs and restaurants, including a few nestled along the beautiful canal.
