Oh my goodness, cycled to the windmill and had the most delicious salad today, lots of leaves, air dried grapes and toasted walnuts, good creamy cheese (their own). Highly recommend!

If you want a treat & somewhere to eat try the windmill. Lovely views, home baked bread, donuts to die for, and fresh sheeps milk cheese, a heavenly blast from the past. Go for it!
