Currently being restored still good visit

The mill is being restored so not much to see at the moment. Some interesting snippets on the history though and a 5 minute walk out to a viewpoint of the broads. Worth a stop if... read more

We visited the wind pump to go for a walk and have a spot of lunch. When we arrived we were surprised to find it was only £1 to park the car! We then had a very nice freshly made sandwich at the cafe, (there were some very nice looking cakes too!) the staff were very friendly and the young... More

Park in the NT car park about £5.00 and set off alongside the mere, past a ruined wind pump and onwards to Horsey Gap for a self prepared picnic on the beach. Use the shelter of the sea defence for a convenient step to it on and shelter from hot sun or rain or wind. Then onwards into the village... More

as National Trust members we have visited several times. Though Summer 2016 the pumps is close for renovations the broadside walk is pleasant with lots of bird life to view. Great car park, loos and coffee and cakes and only 5 minutes from Horsey Beach and also The Nelsons Head

Sailed to the Windpump for an overnight stop. We saw lots of wildlife including kingfishers on the journey, one landed on the boat. There is a £4 mooring charge,(presumably national trust only owns the windmill not the land?) so this is more suitable for an overnight visit than a quick stop. Signage about this fee being payable is easily missed... More

We had a wonderful afternoon sat beside the river with a cup of tea and an ice cream. Although the wind pump is being renovated, it did not spoil our enjoyment of this wonderful spot. If you like nature, it's a great place to watch birds and relax.

We used Horsey Windpump car park, prior to walking to Horsey Beach. Need to utilise the toilet facilites (mens), which I found flooded in water due to a leak. Unfortunately when we arrived at Horsey Beach the seals we had travelled to view were very scarce, but of course thats just nature.

We moored our boat and were immediately told to move it by an attendant who couldn't even be bothered to get out of his car. We did so, but should have followed my instinct to simply leave. However, a toilet stop was needed by the three female members of our group and we thought we could at least have a... More
