Cley Windmill  (Shortlist*)

Beside a bird sanctuary on the north Norfolk coast, this characterful small B&B is in an ingeniously converted 18th-century grinding mill. Owners Julian and Carolyn Godlee have recently refurbished it throughout; it is managed by Simon Whatling. The circular sitting room at the base of the mill has an open fire and a beamed ceiling; upstairs, the bedrooms and galleries have far-reaching views across the salt marshes and the sea. Accessed via a steep ladder, the top-floor Wheel Room has a four-poster bed and four windows, each with a different panoramic view. Dinner is a convivial affair; chefs Emma Wedderburn and Jimi Cubitt prepare daily changing three-course menus, served in the cosy, candlelit dining room in the original granary. Free Wi-Fi. Sitting room, restaurant (background jazz; open to non-residents); 1/4-acre garden. Civil wedding licence. Children welcomed in some rooms (early suppers by arrangement). 9 bedrooms (3 in converted boathouse and granary). Per room B&B £110--£199, D,B&B £168--£257. 2-night min. stay on Fri and Sat nights
