Good Hotel Guide Review
There are inspiring views over salt marsh and sea from Julian and Carolyn Godlee’s characterful B&B and restaurant on the north Norfolk coast – but you’ll have to climb to the top of the 19th-century grinding mill to see them in their full glory. The top-floor Wheel Room is accessed via a ladder; for guests keen to stay grounded, other bedrooms, which overlook the reed beds or the charming village, are in the former store rooms and miller’s accommodation. A daily-changing set supper menu (Cromer crab and chilli fish cakes; pan-seared rack of Norfolk lamb) is served at a candlelit communal dinner. The mill stands next to a bird sanctuary; regular birdwatching events are organised. After breakfast, follow the coastal path to the pebble and shingle beach.
