St Peter's Windmill, home of internationally renowned jewellery designer Catherine Best, was the last surviving working tower mill on Jersey. This beautiful historic monument dates back to 1837 and is made from Jersey granite. The weigh bridge where grain used to be delivered to the Windmill for milling also survived and has become a handy site for buses to stop at Catherine Best. The Windmill is part of a complex that includes a jewellery manufacturing workshop, the Catherine Best jewellery showroom and a Cafe. So please visit at your leisure and maybe take some of Jersey's finest jewellery home as a souvenir of your trip.
The Jersey studio is full of award winning creations using precious metals and a myriad of gemstones of the highest quality. People regularly tell us how much they enjoy browsing the collection of pendants, rings, bracelets and unique statement pieces. There is also a range of bronze sculptures, silverware and earthenware gifts. Jewellery prices start at £34 - £95 for silver, gold respectively and £599 for platinum; there is something for eveyone. Our friendly staff create an unforgettable experience for all our visitors and make everyone feel at home.
Jewellery manufacture at the Windmill is a hand making process using traditional methods and employing up to date machinery and tools. Visitors can view our jewellers at work making, original, limited edition jewellery. Visitors can expect to receive many "While you wait" services such as jewellery cleaning, re-setting, polishing and repairs in addition to advice about how to rejuvenate old jewellery. Commission a special piece of jewellery from Catherine Best or her daughter Vikki Freeman, both are delighted to make visitors' ideas and requests a reality with their creative design skills.
In addition to shopping in the showroom and watching the jewellery making process, the Windmill itself is a tourist attraction and stands in a commanding position 322 feet above sea level. It is the southernmost windmill in the British Isles. Set in tranquil manicured gardens in rural countryside, visitors can sit and relax in the sunny terrace underneath the Windmill’s sails and have something to eat and drink from the cafe. There is an extensive car park, a rarity on Jersey, so take your time before heading off to the nearest beaches at St. Ouens and Grève de Leq, or the many cliff path walks and attractions in the area.
