Intimate wedding
We had our wedding with 11 of us at Cley Windmill over 2 days and 1 night and it was the most perfect day. Laura, Donatas and all the staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Emma Bay Trading Food deserves 5* for the excellent food and the decorations by Bev were wonderful. The Windmill in itself is amazing and a very special place. We will definitely be booking a room for our anniversary ❤️ XX

We initially saw the windmill on a previous visit to Norfolk and decided then that we would book a stay there. It is ideally situated for walking on the coastal path. We chose the Wheel Room at the top, which is accessed via a steep ladder. (The other rooms are all easy to get to!). It was a great experience with wonderful views. The bed was so comfy and there are nice touches such as fresh milk for making hot drinks in your room. Lovely breakfast serving locally sourced foods. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We loved it so much we decided to book our wedding there later this year. It’s the perfect setting for an intimate occasion and you get the whole windmill to use with the 10 bedrooms (all beautiful). Donatas, the manager, is extremely helpful and accommodating. A great visit. Read less

Beautifuly intimate wedding venue, thoroughly recommended. We wanted a cosy, intimate wedding venue for a small group of family and friends. We visited Cley to see if it would suit us and we fell in love with it. We met Sarah who's knowledge of the Windmill and enthusiasm is infectious and set the date there and then and hired the entire Windmill. We were given ample leaflets and advice on how to go about organising flowers, photographer and contacting the registrars. We received emails from Sarah regarding any details she, or we, needed including the choice of menu. We visited again nearer the time to confirm our reservation and inform them of who was allocated to which room and to give them our choices of canapés and dinner menu. I think that was the only thing we had a problem with! The choice of food on both menus was amazing! We all would have very happily started at the first canapé and worked our way through the the last dessert on the dinner menu. The menus are vast and what we chose was delicious. They do a fantastic children's menu too with many choices of starters, main and desserts or a lunchbox which we opted for. Their chef caters for unusual requests such as that if my youngest granddaughter who has leukaemia who just wanted plain bread and tomato sauce, to my sister who is gluten intolerant and unfortunately can't tolerate carbs either. The girls decorated everything and everywhere for me, all I had to do was supply the items, and they made it look beautiful. Everyone didn't stop working to ensure our day was perfect and they took it all in their stride when they had to climb over 3 littleuns spread out on the floor colouring whilst they were trying to serve food. Everyone's rooms were warm and welcoming and most of all, comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was just as much fun as the previous evenings dinner with all of us seated at the one long table trying to decide what to have for breakfast. A massive shout out goes out to Rebecca (Becs), Laura, James, Karla, Suzanne and Sarah. You all wore many hats that day fulfilling all your jobs and you made our day the most relaxed, fun and amazing day that we could have wished for. Thank you xx

We recently had our wedding at Cley windmill, it was only a small wedding with 15 people so we booked the majority of the windmill. The venue looked stunning, the rooms were amazing and the staff were fantastic. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a small relaxed wedding venue.
