Please check that what we offer is what you are interested in and that you have familiarised yourself with our Terms & Conditions for Weddings, Civil Ceremonies & House Parties >>.

Have a look at the wedding date availability page.

Check that there is not a wedding already booked on the day you have in mind.

Check your date with the North Walsham registrar (01692 406220).
    (they are happy to pencil dates in)

Ceremony only weddings are at 2.00pm.

Weddings with accommodation and dinner are at 4.00pm.

The windmill has a full wedding licence and can accommodate a maximum of 22 people (to include the bride and groom) in our sitting room, which is where the wedding ceremony takes place. Please note that this is the maximum number that our licence will allow. Weddings are conducted by the Registrar from North Walsham and these take place in the afternoon.

Our ceremony only charge does not include the registrar's costs.

If you wish to take the entire windmill, we can accommodate 16 people in our Bed & Breakfast rooms or the number can go up to 20 if we include Dovecote (the self catering cottage).

Because of the unique and memorable setting, we experience high demand for weddings and we often receive bookings up to two years in advance!

The windmill is also an ideal place for gatherings following a christening or any other ceremony.

Visiting the windmill...

We are very happy to welcome you to the windmill for a visit to discuss your wedding plans. We would, however, ask that you telephone first to make an appointment in order that we can spend time with you. Whilst we are able to show you the public rooms, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to show you all of the bedrooms as some may be occupied at the time of your visit. Our website, however, has comprehensive photographs of all of our bedrooms including a floorplan.

Sample menus for buffets, canapes & dinner...

The document below is a sample of what we are able to offer. We are, however, happy to cater to your own personal requirements if you would like something different or have any particular dietary requirements. We are also happy to lay on a traditional Norfolk cream tea. All food is freshly produced and locally sourced wherever possible.

A recent happy couple...

To Charlotte and everyone at Cley Mill. Just a little note to say a huge thank you for all that you did for us to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. The mill was the most beautiful place in which to get married and all the staff were delightful, more than helpful and very professional yet still friendly. The food was delicious and everything was exactly as I dreamed of. You have a very special venue and a fantastic team - I would, and have already started to, recommend the mill to everyone I meet. We hope to return for our anniversary so hope to see you soon. Once again, thank you for making our stay absolutely divine. Victoria & Stuart.
