What a lovely place to celebrate our anniversary. So quirky but the standard was first class. We had the long room which is adjacent to the windmill and was just perfect. Very cosy and comfortable. The dinner in the evenings was an intimate affair with candles and subdued lighting. The food was excellent and they change the menu every night.... More

When you book something on your tick list of must do's there's always a risk it won't live up to your expectations. Staying in a windmill for my 50th meant it had to be special, and it was. Quaint and cosy with warm hospitality. From booking to check out everything was dealt with efficiently and with thought. The windmill is... More

one of the most unique places i ever stayed in. I loved it. Full of character. The owner is putting all the money he makes back into the property. Instead of rich people buying it and moving in as it happens in so many other places, this guy makes is accessible for us. It is not cheap, but a once-in-a-lifetime-experience.... More

Unfortunately they do not do lunch at this establishment but for those staying, there is a B. B & D option. My husband & I went for dinner only. The welcome was not overly warm nor was the room we were shown into as the fire was going out. One of the waitresses, the older of the 2, was very... More

If you love peace and quiet, reading or painting, and going for long walks with terrific views and birdlife/wildlife. Combined with fantastic food then this is the place to stay. A perfect get away and relaxing stay. Extremely courteous and friendly staff to ensure your stay is great. Want to go again !!

Stayed here for the evening to celebrate my wife's birthday. Simon very kindly organised flowers (which were amazing!) and pink fizz for the room. We stayed in the Stone room which was very cosy and extremely comfortable. The evening meal and breakfast were both delicious and the wine menu was impressive.

Amazing.. the room was comfy and copied and everything was how I'd expect it to be. The food was lovely.. the biggest let down.. the evening waiting staff. In fact it was hard to listen to the same waitress ask 8 different tables of 2 "Is everything OK say far?" The guy waiter didn't really know what he was doing..... More

We took over the Windmill for our wedding! The atmosphere is very special, and the furnishings extremely comfortable. Sarah & Simon (who manage the Windmill), could not have been more helpful in guiding us through our planning for the day, and were on hand at all times to make sure that everything happened as it should. And it did! The... More

Very nice setting, using a windmill as a hotel and restaurant but also for weddings and meetings. It's in a very beautiful setting, overlooking the Cley marshes. Definitely worth coming here, even if it's just to have a look at the restored windmill.
