Booking Enquiry Website

The Aylsham Windmill was built in 1826 and was a working flour mill for almost 100 years. Derelict for more than 80 years, it has now been converted into luxurious self-catering accommodation for 6 people. The accommodation is on 4 floors linked by stairs.

This is a fully equipped property with full kitchen and lounge, 1 double (king) bedroom with en-suite, and another double and twin room sharing a bathroom. There is a private walled patio garden with furniture and gas barbeque.

The mill is situated on the outskirts of the historic market town of Aylsham. The town is the centre of a rural community of scattered farms and villages set in beautiful rolling countryside. Being only 10 miles from the city of Norwich, Wroxham and the Broads, and the coast at Cromer, it is the ideal base from which to explore North Norfolk, Broadland and the miles of beautiful sandy beaches. Bure Valley steam railway is close by and the mill is 100 yards from Marriotts Way cycle trail and the network of footpaths which are linked to it.

Fantastic Holiday

The moment you arrive on the red mud drive way, you know this is going to be spectacular. We were not disappointed - the welcome pack surpasses any other that we have received.

The hosts Tim and Janet are excellent, attentive but not intrusive.
The accommodation is exceptionally clean - suitable for all the family. Also a bonus is keeping you fit with the stairs.

The area is very quiet, only sounds we heard was of birds singing,incredible village location. Would recommend for ideal holiday.

Excellent accomodation in a great location.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The mill was cosy, well equipped and spotless. Lots of lovely extras provided and would happily recommend this to anyone.
