Why not book the entire windmill?

We now offer the opportunity to hire the entire windmill for exclusive days or weeks at a time. This is a unique and memorable way to entertain your friends and family. The windmill can sleep up to 20 in 9 rooms on a B&B basis. Evening meals and lunches are also available.

Cley Windmill is renowned for its stunning location within the marshes of the North Norfolk Coast. We offer an intimate space for your group event or party, where your friends and family can celebrate together, whether it be a special birthday, a Golden Wedding Anniversary or a reunion.

If you would like to take over the windmill you can either book all our B&B rooms (which accommodate 16) or include our self catering cottage (Dovecote) and take your numbers to 18 or 20.

Please contact the windmill for more details.
