We spent a wonderful few days at the beautiful Cley Windmill with the surrounding area looking at its best from our spacious, comfortable and stylishly furnished room - Long House. Every possible amenity was provided to ensure that our stay was as relaxing as possible. Delicious breakfast and dinner fare was served by the helpful and courteous staff. The sitting... More

We recently stayed at the Cley Windmill and whilst it is a unique site, my husband and I were left feeling quite underwhelmed. The bedrooms are lovely and the soft furnishings really make the room, but there were a couple of things that let it down. Firstly the Lounge is very dated, the set meal for dinner was not good...

We're sorry to read your comments, Suzie and we take your feedback very seriously. As you know, one of our housekeeping team had suffered a very nasty fall and Simon had taken her home, hence not being at the reception desk for a few minutes when you wanted him. This was an unusual occurrence and we do apologise for the... More

This is such a great place for a special occasion – or any occasion come to that! We stayed in the Miller’s Room, a ground floor suite which is part of the windmill complex, though not within the tower. There was plenty of room, and it was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, with a view out to the garden. It... More

We recently attended a wedding here & it was superb. We stayed in the Long Room which was lovely - clean & welcoming with a very comfortable bed. Because it was a small venue the atmosphere was great. The food was lovely & the table decorations for the wedding meal were lovely. A very different type of venue and because... More

My wife Heather and I were married at the windmill on 21 March in a perfect wedding. In the build up to our big day, the managers, Simon and Sarah were incredibly helpful in helping us plan to ensure everything went perfectly. On the day, everything went to plan with Sarah being on hand during the ceremony to make sure... More

The North Norfolk coast is my favourite part of the UK, and Cley Windmill is certainly one of the top places to stay in the area . Cley is a very pretty village, perched precariously between sea, marshland and rolling farmland, and the windmill is visible for miles around. It certainly offers something different to the usual b n b's... More

We stayed at the Cley Windmill in July of 14. Surprisingly, the rooms were roomy. We reserved two rooms but I can't remember the names. One was directly under the top room, and the other was under that one. Both were well furnished, clean, great bathrooms, and with views across the marsh. There was a reading room on the bottom...

Just spent the night in the Wheel Room at the very top of Cley Windmill....not for the faint hearted but a fabulous experience. You have to climb a steep ladder up to the room, which has an open four poster bed and fabulouse views of the surrounding Marshes. A further ladder takes you from the room up into your en... More

As you pull up you are greeted by a stunning sight. Your very own windmill. The manager give a very warm welcome and his enthusiasm and pride in what they have is evident. Stunning rooms right in the cogs of the roof. We opted to dine in the restaurant on the Saturday. Beautiful food. Best mixed grill ever! Breakfast as... More
