Full Description
This iconic, romantic windmill sleeps up to 20 in round and rectangular rooms, all furnished with style and with splendid views. A magical, beautiful and unusual place! The windmill is fully licenced for up to 24 guests in our magnificent circular sitting room which is where the wedding ceremony takes place. We aim to gear the entire day around exactly what you want - some people just like a very small and informal affair, others like something slightly larger and more formal. We offer several options: 1. The ceremony alone, with refreshments served afterwards from our Dining Room. You have full use of the gardens and grounds. or 2. If you would like to take over the Windmill and make a real occasion of it you can either book all our b&b rooms (which accommodate 16) or include our self-catering cottage and take your numbers to 18 or 20. You can then go on to dine in our atmospheric candlelit Dining Room. Or 3. You may decide to have a marquee in the beautiful garden, either for the ceremony or for the dining. With this option you are able to invite more guests to your special day in a unique setting. Or 4. Come up with your own suggestion and we’ll do our very best to make it work for you! The Windmill is such an unforgettable setting for a wedding, demand is high and we often get booked up years in advance! Contact Simon or Sarah to discuss your special day on 01263 740209 or email

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.
