My brother & his fiancée held their wedding at Cley Windmill. There were 14 of us, all of whom stayed in the windmill for 2 nights. The building & setting is beautiful. The food was delicious & the staff were very friendly & helpful. I'd recommend the windmill as a great place to stay & as a brilliant venue for...

Cley windmill never fails to deliver. My fiancé and I went to the windmill for dinner to celebrate our 1 year anniversary of being engaged (which incidentally we got engaged at the windmill last Easter!). We were utterly spoilt with the food, ambience and great wine. The crab fish cakes were to die for and the mains and dessert were...

We booked through Secret Escapes but what they fail to tell you is that most of the rooms are not actually in the main Windmill itself but in the buildings on the complex. However the room we had was extremely comfortable with a super four poster bed which was very luxurious. We had an evening meal which was superb although...

We're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and all the extra touches. I agree that the windmill biscuits (in the shape of a windmill) are yummy. And yes, dinner is a fixed menu each night but with sufficient notice we are very happy to cater for any dietary restrictions. At a houseparty last weekend we had gluten-free, dairy-free, and...

We stayed her over the long bank holiday weekend in April. The windmill is charming. Very comfortable....think a lounge with large battered sofas that you can put your feet up on with newspaper in front of a fireplace. bedrooms are immaculate. I actually think the bedrooms outside of the windmill are nice than the ones inside. Breakfast is fantastic with...

Stayed here for One Night with Dinner, bed and Breakfast. Perfect location in North Norfolk, staff were so friendly and helpful, the room had amazing views, the food was incredible and such lovely personal touches for my partners birthday. Nice to socialise and talk to other guests pre and post dinner, I will definitely be going back in the future,...

My husband and I had a lovely meal at the Mill. Casual but nice cosy friendly environment. A very intimate setting so probably not a good place if you do not like socialising /meeting other people. It is small and so you inevitably end up chatting to others which for us was fine. Very helpful and friendly staff! Thank you...

Visited the Cley Windmill with a group of friends for the weekend, and it lived up to its billing of being a picturesque boutique bnb. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the food on offer was brilliant. Would certainly revisit in the future and couldn't recommend it any highly for others to make a trip there!

Cley Windmill is a lovely place to stay in a picturesque environment and with well mannered attentive staff. I was impressed with the quality of food on offer and the rooms are presented in a nice and uplifting style. Overall a great experience and one I would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend or holiday.

We wanted somewhere special, quiet and different for a night away. Easy to find and well signposted. What an attraction! I am finding it difficult to find words to describe this exceptional location. On arrival, we were welcomed warmly and quietly. We were shown to the Wheel Room... well... talk about quirky, brilliant, fun and beautiful. To get in had...

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in Wheel Room. It's definitely one of our favourites as it's so different, and as you say the views are spectacular. We really hope you'll come again!

We stayed for two nights and what a great location. The rooms in the windmill are amazing and the space has been utilised expertly. Great staff and great food. Would definitely love to visit again soon.
