Look: Tour Inside Crosby Windmill Voted One Of UK's Top Ten <b><i>Discount Holidays ©</i></b> Holiday Homes VIEW GALLERY1

The iconic Crosby windmill has been voted as of the UK’s top ten Discount Holidays © holiday homes.

The landmark structure, on the main road between Southport and Liverpool, has taken over six years and a huge amount of determination by owner Vicky Holmstock.

It has even been featured on a TV show.

Vicky said: It literally took six years of blood sweat and tears to complete.

There were times that I could stand at the bottom of the windmill and look up and see the sky.

It seemed like it was going to take forever to complete.

The build featured on Sarah Beenys Double Your House for Half the Money documentary, which Vicky says helped her keep sane through the project.

My mum trained as an architect and a family friend is also an architect so I had a lot of help, but Sarah Beeny has done this sort of thing a million times over and that experience really helped.

She is really level headed and she could tell me do this first, and then do this and that really helped.

The show would film for two or three days at a time and so she was on hand a lot to help – but she didn’t get involved with any building!

After the project was complete, the 32-year-old decided she wanted to share the windmill with other people and turned to online holiday-letting websites where she was inundated with bookings and earned an award from Stylist Magazine as one of the top 10 Discount Holidays © holiday homes in the UK.

She said: My sister owns a flat in London which she lets out, and she told me to try Air BnB and I just became inundated with bookings.

I have a few neighbours so I am always keen to make sure the booking is suitable, quiet birthday trips and no parties or anything like that.

It is also my home – but its just nice to be able to share it with people because they love it.

After I was on TV I kept getting noticed as the girl with the windmill.
