Welcome to Windmill Stables Holiday Lets


Come and stay in one of our charming, converted stables situated in the picturesque village of Barrington, 7 miles south-west of Cambridge, said to have one of the largest village greens in England. 


The stables are located in a little oasis in the grounds of an old windmill, itself converted to a dwelling over 60 years ago. There is access to an outdoor-heated swimming pool (usually May-September), a hot-tub, BBQ, boules pitch, gardens and outside seating areas to relax and unwind in. We also have a treatment room where you can get a de-stress, relaxation or sports massage. For further information go to the website.


Each stable sleeps 2 adults, and well behaved dogs are allowed to stay on request. They are finished to a high spec and are fully-equipped for a self-catering holiday. Ideal for couples, a romantic break, a relaxing getaway, or a group booking.


The stables provide a great base for exploring the beautiful countryside of South Cambridgeshire with its many local attractions, great local walks and cycling routes. We are only a few minutes' walk from the charming, beamed village pub that has been overlooking the village green since the Middle Ages.  



Each stable below is named after one of the three horses that were born here when there was a riding school on site back in the 1980s. Click the photos below to find out more.




Stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting family. The stable we stayed in (Victor) was very comfortable and furnished to a very high standard. Facilities (living area kitchenette bedroom and bathroom) were all superb and we had everything we needed. There were other facilities we didn't use such as a hot tub as we had plenty of visiting to do... but could see that others were enjoying! A lovely cosy haven to return to and relax. Lapped up the delicious complimentary freshly laid eggs and just loved observing the chickens that laid them potter about to their hearts' content! Rowena was very friendly and accommodating as a host and we will definitely return.
Beautiful grounds and surrounding area too just make this a perfect place to stay for anyone visiting the area.


I was shown into recently refurbished accommodation in converted stables by welcoming and friendly hosts. I was immediately taken with the tasteful decor, and high standard of finish. The shower was fantastic, the bed extremely comfortable and overall the space was very well equipped. Importantly, I was also thoroughly impressed by the immaculate standard of cleanliness throughout.
I would definitely stay here again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it, especially having such good access to Cambridge (and a great pub serving very good food within walking distance!)
