Windmill Cottage, at Broadclyst Heath, built 1786, was formerly the miller's cottage. The two storey building has walls of painted stone rubble on a stone plinth under a hipped thatched roof with a lateral chimney stack in the original rear wall and symmetrical fenestration in the front façade. The existence of two small staircases before modernisation suggest the property may have been two small cottages at some time.
