Meet A Member – Windmill Retreat

Windmill Retreat is a family owned and managed collection of five 5 star luxurious Lodges located in the village of Middlezoy. The first customers were welcomed in July 2015 and all five lodges have received sustained congratulatory customer feedback to our booking agents. These positive reviews expressing the quality and location of our lodges led to bookings from visitors across the UK and from Overseas. During our trading year July to December 2015 we realised that our Lodge with a Hot tub received 56% more bookings than the others. We installed a further two Hot tubs and have watched our bookings increase as our guests enjoyed this added luxury facility. Every cottage has been stylishly furnished, and those little features that make a house a home can be found throughout. Allwynds, The Millstone and Levels View - all complete with their own bubbling hot tub and private balcony, Millers rest - suitable for Disabled guests   Sail loft - an intimate two guest lodge   This success led us to research how we could expand our amenities to capture more of the luxury short break market. We are currently completing the building of a communal dining area/ champagne bar to accompany our existing Lodges which we consider will also be a new facility in our area for local residents   Our next project is the building of a fully functional spa on our grounds to open in May 2018. Our market research shows that the addition of a spa will both increase occupancy and also bring in non-residents for spa treatments, spa days, champagne teas, and twilight spas.  We aim to have four treatment rooms and will employ up to six people to carry out the treatments and run the facility. Our vision is to build a modern spa with full glass frontage to take in the amazing views of the Somerset Levels and Burrow Mump from our elevated position. Windmill Retreat is constantly evolving and since opening in July 2015 we have seen the facilities grow. We intend to keep expanding our business in line with our own market research, trends and customer feedback. Our maintained growth has seen customers return and experience something new on returning visits. We are proud that by investing in our local community we are providing new employment opportunities and raising the profile of the Somerset levels. https://windmillretreat.co.uk/
