Informative sheet provided on arrival. Pleasant view from top floor. Would be great to see it in action - when does that happen? Very good selection of Dutch food available.

Anyone driving south on the SH1 will be surprised to see a Dutch windmill off to the right. Do take the time to stop and have a look around. It's the real deal, a working windmill, built to a Dutch design and run by volunteers....More

The windmill is so unique and very interesting with a working mill some days you can see them grinding the wheat into flour. Run by volunteers they do a great job.

Set in the middle of the town this windmill is stunning, very good condition and great history surrounding it. Has cafe close and you need to visit it if you re in the area.
