We had a very nice stay at the Windmill. It's a very imposing building, the owners were very pleasant and helpful and the goodies left for us were so welcome. The porridge oats so good we bought some to bring home. Everything of interest in the town was within walking distance. And good walks and birding further afield.

A great experience to stay in a working windmill. The accommodation is very well equipped and comfortable. Boston centre is a short walk and there is an excellent Italian restaurant nearby. James and Richard are excellent hosts.

We had such a wonderful time, the mill is charming and we had a lovely time cooking in the fabulously well set up kitchen and wandering around the town. The hosts are lovely and so obliging, they were ready to answer all of our questions and were always so friendly. We would definitely recommend this place.
