Perhaps one of the most unique B&Bs in the country, Cley Windmill is certainly very different, and offers a warm welcome and a comfortable stay. On the ground floor, the circular sitting room, filled with antique furniture and comfy sofas, is a great place to sit, relaxing in front of the open fire. The beamed dining room, which forms part of the original warehouse that dates to 1713, is a stylish and relaxing place to eat. Upstairs, the rooms all have superb views out across the marshes to the sea.

With the exception of events, dinner is cooked almost every night. The Norfolk Taster Menu changes every day.
