Christmas Message

As you all know, we close both the Windmill and the Coffee Shop after the last Father Christmas sessions until the Spring. Next year for January and February, the Partea Hut coffee shop ladies will be renting the Coffee shop and opening every day except Wednesdays and Sundays. The windmill will remain closed.

In the beginning of March, the Windmill will reopen on Fridays, Saturday and Sundays. The plan is for the ladies to continue renting the Coffee Shop on days when we are not open. So from mid-March, we will be opening the Coffee Shop on Saturdays and Sundays only for our Charity, not Fridays.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your great support to the Windmill Charity this year and wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas.


There are five floors and although the steps are steep and not suitable for all, a video presentation on the ground floor tells the story of the windmill and includes footage of the upper floors and exhibitions. The windmill is set in extensive grounds with a detached Coffee Shop serving coffee/tea and delicious home made cakes.  Full disabled facilities are available within the coffee shop and grounds, including a specially adapted picnic bench.

We welcome visitors to come and see monthly changing exhibitions held in this historic building.
