Cley Windmill

The iconic windmill at Cley-next-the Sea is a wonderful place to just sit and enjoy the view. Glistening reed beds, the sea in the distance, and the iconic windmill, newly restored.  

You can stay in one of the 9 rooms, round or square, and for the more adventurous, there are rooms at the top of the tower with superb views.  The food is terrific and there’s a super new Garden Café (open 10.00 – 4.00 most days) for those of you who fancy savouring your crab salad and glass of chilled prosecco with a fabulous view of the bright, new sails against a big blue sky.  Nothing is too much trouble and families are very welcome.  For those of you who fancy a touch of fine dining, the windmill offers sumptuous candle-lit dinners (fixed menu) every night, with a pre-dinner visit to the balcony and drinks in the round sitting room or in the garden, watching the sunset.

The windmill is now owned by Julian and Carolyn Godlee, who took it over 10 years ago after 85 years in the Blunt family (Parents of James Blunt the singer).
