W - Windmill

A lovely Grade II* listed windmill on the beautiful North Norfolk coast this windmill has been converted into a guest house where you can stay in one of the rooms on a B&B basis or self catering in one of the outbuildings. You can hire the entire windmill over Christmas if you have a few friends or family to share it with. With walks onto the salt-laden marshes straight from the front door it is a perfect place to get away from it all. Magic!

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Good old Cley! It is one of those places that can seem to do no wrong, as it is all things, to all people. Lovely windmill, and good photos too.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. You should take Julie there for a weekend – staying over and having dinner there. So atmospheric. Good food, I can recommend the Sunday lunch, though it isn’t cheap. We loved it in the winter. Thanks for the compliment too Pete, much appreciated.

      1. This is a lovely post, goes right to my heart, Jude! Wonderful photos of the Mill, as we call it in Cley. I always thought the Mill was very pricy, but yesterday we went there for Wine and Dine and it was very good value for money indeed. We had a most enjoyable evening in very nice company.
        Have a great weekend, you and yours and Pete and Julie and Ollie ❤ as well.:-)

        1. Thought you’d like this one Dina. You are right, the meal isn’t cheap, but the food was excellent when we stayed there and it is a lovely dining room. I’d stay there again, but now I know about KB’s annexe, maybe not 😉

  2. I’ll have to put this on my list…I was only saying to someone the other day that I want to get back to North Norfolk!

    1. Well worth the cost of staying there Sue – though you might not want the Wheel room as it is up a ladder! Cheaper rates in the winter months and very quiet with lots of birds in the marshes.We loved it!

        1. Have you not been up there? Not too far from your Suffolk idyll. Do stay in the windmill though – such fun!

    1. Then you’d love this one – you can sleep in the circular tower. There is a room at the top accessed by a ladder, with another ladder up to a further floor with an en-suite!

      1. Yes, a few years ago I stayed there with Klausbernd. Enjoyed the village and the area a lot. That, btw, was when we went to Norwich and took the pictures of the bosses (and other motifs) there.
