Stayed for two nights in the main windmill . Lovely quirky accommodation with everything you need. Huge bedroom with walk in shower on the floor above. Proprietors were extremely helpful offering advice on local restaurants and directions. Wishing them both lots of success for the future 🙂

We booked for a two night B&B stay in the Windmill Balcony Suite. On arrival, we were able to check in early and Nicola, one of the proprietors, showed us to the suite. It was a climb up a set of steep steel stairs, but at the top, the views make the climb well worth it. The accommodation was spotless...

We originally booked to stay in the windmill but unfortunately my wife's fear of heights got the better of her. To get to your room in the mill you have to go up an external flight of steps then walk around a platform to get to the door, this proved too much for my wife so please bear this in...

The Windmill is situated in a residential area roughly central to both North Beach and South Beach. It is accessed by a narrow road (Mill Road) and at the end it opens to a private enclosed brick paved car park. There are also several small cottages that are part of the windmill complex. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by...

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
