Summary

Stay in a Windmill, perfectly placed to explore North Norfolk, Norwich and the Broads. Aylsham is a lovely, vibrant yet very old market town. The Windmill was renovated in 2000 and has provided top quality accommodation for up to six guests ever since. Perfect too as a base for walkers and cyclists, with good access to off road trails.

What makes a stay at Aylsham Windmill unique?

Have your very own private windmill, even if just for a few days. Unique accommodation over four floors. Aylsham Windmill is equipped with everything you will need. You have a private, sunny patio, and parking for up to 3 cars. After a busy day exploring Norfolk, have a relaxing BBQ, then retreat to the cool calm of the mill. The extra thick round walls will make you feel cocooned, away from all the hustle and bustle.

What is the capacity for Aylsham Windmill?

Aylsham Windmill sleeps up to six. A kingsized bedroom is on the third floor. This room has an en-suite with bath and shower cubicle. The second floor has twin and double bedrooms. These both have access to a 'Jack & Jill' en-suite shower room. The first floor is an open plan lounge and kitchen. Ground floor - utility and cloakroom.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Aylsham area?

The historic town of Aylsham is remarkably well placed to discover different areas and aspects of Norfolk. 10 miles from the city of Norwich, with its lovely lanes, museums, castle, cathedral and plenty more. 10 miles from the coast at Cromer, the traditional seaside town. A little further the delights of the North coast, at Blakeney and Wells, and the iconic Holkham beach. The Norfolk Broads are about 40 mins away, with so much to see and do from canoeing, day boating, or birdwatching at one of the many reserves. National Trusts' Blickling and Felbrigg Halls are very close to Aylsham. Walking and cycling is a pleasure on our 'quiet lanes' or the off road Marriott's and weavers' Way trails.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Aylsham itself has several lovely cafes for lunches and teas. Evening meals can be enjoyed in the central market square at the Black Boys Hotel, or the Gate of India. There are also fish and chips, chinese and kebab takeaways. There are several good hotels and pubs veryclose to Aylsham, the Plough Inn, the Marsham Arms and the Forge to name a few and many of the surrounding villages have excellent pubs too. Norwich has many excellent eateries of course.

Ten Luxury Self Catering Properties for New Year's Eve by Kate Simon

"Up to six can spend New Year in the unusual surroundings of a 19th-century windmill on the outskirts of the Norfolk market town of Aylsham. The accommodation is set across four floors of this historic building, but you can come together to toast the New Year beneath the quaint beams in the open-plan living area. Blow the cobwebs away the next day on one of the glorious beaches along the nearby North Norfolk coast."

Beautiful place to stay.
A brilliant stay in a unusual property. a lot of thought and consideration has gone into renovating the windmill to a high standard. very generous welcome pack from the hosts who are friendly and pleasant. everything is there that you could want. very clean and comfortable. seating area out side is a bonus and private parking for the car. good base for all the walks nearby and the attractions not too far to walk into Aylsham. we booked after viewing on the website where it looked lovely but on arrival it exceeded our expectations.

An idyllic stay in beautiful accommodation.
We had such a lovely stay here, from the ease of booking, super communication and arriving at the windmill everything was brilliant. The place is extremely clean and they have thought of everything you might need. Each room is beautifully decorated and beds are very comfy. The location is perfect for days out with the bure train just round the corner which takes you to a boat that you can go on the Norfolk broads on. We also took a trip to Cromer beach a couple of times which has good facilities, is clean and has a great fish and chip shop. An enjoyable stay that we are already planning to repeat.

Great hospitality and facilities. 5/5.
This was our second time staying at the Windmill and it proved to be the right choice again. The owners were friendly and helpful. The cottage was clean and cosy. Tim and Janet were very approachable and we had a BBQ together. They also offered a good choice of games and cartoons which kept the children entertained! Highly recommended!

Stunning! Chris and Julie
Review
We were excited to find the link on I footpath for this amazing property. The whole mill is stunning, the interior so comfortable, giving a real sense of home from home. The patio garden and planting was beautiful, so nice to have our own outside space. Chris thoroughly enjoyed his bike rides starting just 200 metres from the Windmill, and all our visits in the local area were brilliant. The foodie gifts on our arrival were very welcome, especially the honey cake! Tim and Janet are excellent hosts and we can't wait to stay there again. 5/5

Lovely stay at windmill
Stayed for three nights at this lovely windmill. The property was beautifully renovated and provided excellent accommodation . Large living area with plenty of seating for 6 guests and a well equipeed kitchen with all mod cons. Comfortable beds and ensuite bathrooms with showers as well. A very handy utility room on the ground floor, even beach towels provided. The property was spotlessly clean and the owners, who live next door were delightful, very helpful but not at all intrusive. Aylsham itself is a pretty village in walking distance with plenty of small shops to stock up on food etc. Very nice touch as owners provided cake and milk, teabags coffee etc on our arrival. I would highly recommend this holiday home, great to stay in a windmill, and the owners are very flexible on number of nights you wish to book. If you book this property you will not be disappointed. 5/5

Wonderful short break
Lovely place. It's comfortable and cosy with everything you could possibly need. Tim and Janet are excellent hosts and all the little extras like the chocolates and fruitcake make you feel very welcome. The mill itself is quite spectacular and quirky. Really enjoyed staying there as always. 5/5

Once again, amazing
This was our third stay at the Windmill, which pretty much says it all. This time, the weather was absolutely fabulous so we enjoyed eating outside! It is well located, with easy access to the coast and the Norfolk Broads. The accommodation itself is clean, the beds are really comfortable and there is everything you would need for the perfect stay. The little animals around the windmill provided endless amusement for the children, we found the prize mouse but twice now the cat with the red scarf eluded us (had to ask for a clue as it was driving us bonkers)! I would highly recommend this windmill, we have booked to come again in October! 5/5

Great week in a top quality restored windmill holiday cottage & a great base for exploring Norfolk. Tim and Janet clearly wish their guests to have the best stay possible and we couldn't find fault with anything. Have recommended to friends and will certainly be back. Fantastic holiday!!

5/5
From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the owners we knew that we were going to enjoy our week in North Norfolk. We took our bikes and there was ample room in the ground floor utility for storage. The convenience of a washer dryer and dishwasher was greatly appreciated. The bed was comfy and there was more than ample bits and pieces ie salt, pepper, tea bags, coffee milk and the like to ease us into our vacation. We cycled or walked from the door every day which is so refreshing to go away and leave the car on the drive. The owners were next door and we were invited to 'knock on' if we had any issues but all went well. We can highly recommend this holiday let and the location.

A historic and beautifully restored old windmill conveniently situated on the outskirts of Aylsham
The Old Windmill is extremely well resourced and spotlessly clean. We were a party of 3 adults interested in National Trust Properties and Nature Reserves and found the Mill conveniently situated to visit a selection of venues. We also appreciated being within an easy walking distance of the centre of Aylsham for meals in the evening and for rolls and pastries from the bakeries in the morning. Tim and Janet were helpful and friendly without being obtrusive and we were impressed with the welcome pack which was left for us to enjoy. We would certainly recommend the Old Windmill to anyone wanting a holiday in a historic, quirky and comfortable home
