For something a little different on the north Norfolk coast, Cley Windmill is a characterful B&B and restaurant in a 19th-century grinding mill. A country aesthetic adorns the rooms, and small ceremonies take place in the beautiful round Sitting Room ,which can hold up to 22 people. Given the intimacy of the space, it’s all about bespoke occasions whether you opt for a daytime or an evening party - we’re particularly smitten with the option for dinner by candlelight.
