Return Visit. My 4th stay at The Windmill. Janet and Tim are thoroughly charming hosts and The Windmill was as stunning as ever. Our Granddaughter loved the hunt for the hidden creatures around the Windmill. Highly recommended!!!

Perfect place to stay. We spent a peaceful couple of days in the luxurious accommodation at the Aylsham Windmill. It has been lovingly restored with lots of added touches ( lights on the mirrors, boxes of tissues in each room, a supply of dvds for those cold nights and a welcome of tea, coffee and cake!).

A winter break. The windmill is very cosy and warm. Janet and Tim always very helpful and welcoming. It was our second visit to the windmill. Lots of lovely places to visit, Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall both National trust and well worth a visit. The seals at Horsey are incredible. Aylsham is a lovely little town and a short walk from the windmill.

Thank you Janet and Tim

The most wonderful windmill. This was without doubt the best self-catered holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in. The windmill is simply stunning – so quirky and interesting, a real home from home and the special touches the owners provide really are so thoughtful. I wish I could have stayed forever! Best holiday ever.

Another amazing stay. This was our second visit to this beautiful wind mill. The windmill has every thing you need for a home from home feeling with out being at home. We will definitely be returning it is so peaceful and pretty much central to all you need to visit in Norfolk. A couple of lovely pubs within walking distance. PS this time I found the mouse !!!
