Cley Windmill Information


The Windmill is in the village of Cley-next-the-Sea, Norfolk and is surrounded by reeds, marshes and the River Glaven flowing out towards the sea. We are also next to one of the best nature reserves for bird watching in the UK. The Windmill itself can sleep 12 guests in 6 rooms and a further 8 guests can be accommodated in the separate Boat House, Long House and Dovecote. This flexibility makes the windmill an ideal place for wedding parties, house parties or large groups. Join us for a unique experience at Cley Windmill. Book your wedding party, house party or stay for a few nights. From the moment you arrive, you and your guests will enjoy a warm welcome, stunning interiors and experience all that this iconic building and coastal landscape has to offer. This beautifully restored windmill has its own walled garden, a circular sitting room and spectacular views from rooms in the tower. The setting here is magical -the sunsets are to die for and guests return again and again to relax and unwind, fabulously looked after by the friendly and attentive staff. The windmill, now with new sails, dates from 1713. It became a house in the 1920s, and was the family home of James Blunt! Square rooms are the largest, several have sofas, while round rooms in the tower are impossibly romantic (Wheel Room is accessed by a ladder!) Six rooms are in the mill and there are also three beautifully converted outhouses. Inside, you'll discover the loveliest round sitting room – low ceiling, open fire, stripped floorboards and a sweet little window seat. Bedrooms have a chic feel with Farrow & Ball colours, beautiful fabrics, and even the odd roll-top bath. Those in the tower (with compact shower rooms) get smaller as you go up, but the views get better with every step; there’s a viewing gallery halfway up, for all to enjoy. You eat in a pretty dining room, almost always locally sourced produce and deliciously tasty.
