Interesting spot

We came here sometime ago and had a tour of the windmill. It was fascinating. Its a beautiful spot and definitely worth a short visit.

A nice place for a snack at the little NT cafe/shop and a stroll down to the broad. Good views from the top of the wind pump but not as attractive since it lost its sails. Some interesting broads boats generally moored there.

One of the few windpumps/windmills remaining that you can still climb up (now that Sutton mill, a few miles away, has closed). Shame the sails are off at present, but they are due to go back on when refurbishment of the cap is completed - not before it needs it really. Interesting exhibition inside, including photos of flooding in 1930s... More

A well restored windmill well worth a visit if you are in the area.There are some nice walks beside the broads & by car the beach is only 5 mins away & at Horsey gap you may see seals on the beach.

Our first visit to this Windpump despite having visited Norfolk many times. Loved the place, so how come we'd not been there before?! Enjoyed the windpump, then had a coffee at the Horsey Staithe Stores next door, which we returned to for lunch after a walk to the beach. The NT has done well to maintain this attraction, which we...

A very lovely place to stop and refuel with clean free toilets, a shower for any sailors (must be paid for), and a cute tea room and shop. Can easily spend an hour here, or more if you'd like to explore the nature walk and the windmill.

Good historical place to visit with lots of info about the mill. If you are able to climb to the top you can see the Broads from the top, a lovely sight. They have developed and kept the area very well and seems to be a popular place to visit. There is a small cafe serving fresh coffee, always a... More

Very informative time spent in the wind pump learning about the hard life on the broads. Take time to wander thru the reed beds or take a trip on the Lady Ann

Don't expect to be here very long. It literally is just a windpump. You can get re-freshments and its a good start to a 4ish mile walk. Would be better if the pump was still operational.

We diverted here on impulse (admittedly intrigued by the funny name) and as we're National Trust members anyway the decision was made. On a pleasant day (as it was in our case), it's a lovely little rest-spot where you can get a brew and bit of cake by the windpump and Horsey Mere, and if you were inclined you could... More
