Overview
Windmill -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Horning, Norwich, Norfolk, East Anglia, England
Your chance to stay in this wonderfully characterful property built around an old wind pump. It is in a prime location, with idyllic views of the River Bure. Stands by shared basin offering tranquil mooring.
Quirky accommodation, all on ground floor, is dictated by the octagonal shape of the cottage. Central heating
One allocated parking bay. Access via level pathway.
Large waterside lawn with BBQ area and exterior lights. Small children must be closely supervised at all times.
Information on day boat hire available.

We had a week's stay at The Windmill recently. Horning is a pretty village and the Windmill is set on the banks of the River Bure. As you would expect the accommodation is small and because of this the furnishings are basic but adequate. The outlook from the property is lovely and the garden is a haven for wild birds,...

Additional amenities & feature info
Given the nature of the Windmill, accommodation is not spacious, but is full of character, and has everything you could need for a week's holiday. Small but perfectly formed! Electric heaters in all rooms. One double bedroom, and two single bedrooms. It has a wonderful view over the river Bure, and the fishing is good. It is accessed via a gravel path, and all the accommodation is on the ground floor.
