Located on the stunning waterways of the Norfolk Broads and within easy reach of wonderful coastline, this lovingly converted Windmill, which is surrounded by water and boasts panoramic views, certainly has a ‘license to thrill!’

Enjoy a Norfolk Broads holiday with a difference when you stay at this former windmill at Repps with Bastwick, in the Norfolk Broads. Dating back 300 years, the unique, three-bedroom building has been beautifully converted to offer truly special accommodation for five guests and two four-legged friends. Make the most of the private mooring to take a boat out on to the picturesque Broads; fish from your own jetty or simply relax in the James Bond-themed interior at this individual, circular property.

Step into the unusual kitchen, which comes fitted with everything you might need for preparing homecooked meals. Take two steps up into the lounge/diner to watch the Smart TV or a DVD; stoke up the wood burner or look at the stars through the telescope. Pull open the doors and wander out on to the deck. Find a downstairs shower room with WC and a steep, open-tread staircase leading up to a mezzanine, double bedroom. Reach another double bedroom, with Smart TV, via the main stairs, and an open-plan, single bed, also with TV, on the second floor. The third floor houses a study/dressing room, while the fourth floor accommodates a lounge, with double sofa bed and viewing point, capturing sweeping vistas. This room is accessed via narrow, steep stairs. Discover just as much care has gone into the outside spaces at the mill, where there is a plethora of seating areas and an outside WC and shower for warm weather use. The property comes with a permit for a car park close by; additional parking can be arranged.

Hire a boat from Potter Heigham, 2.5 miles away, to enjoy days out on the water. Head to Winterton, 6 miles away, to picnic on the sand, swim in the sea and occasionally spot seals out in the waves.

Really loved this place, so different. Felt like we have had a proper holiday at last after all the COVID restrictions. The garden is wonderful, lots of seating areas to relax on and watch the local wildlife. Could not recommend enough.

We had a lovely stay at the Windmill. Initially quite a trek to get luggage from the parking space to the Windmill especially after a 10 hour drive! A lot of thought has been put into the amazing & quirky decor we constantly kept finding things or artwork to admire!!. The beds were comfy although the mezzanine level bedroom is a bit claustrophobic Read moreand too light in the morning. The Windmill is very well equipped nothing was missing. The view from the top level balcony is stunning. Great location. Hide

The windmill is beautifully situated next to a stunning part of the Broads. The windmill is maintained to an exceptionally high standard both inside and out. It has a number of areas outside to enjoy and the decking area overlooks an area of natural beauty to observe exciting wildlife. We saw owls, herons, hares and butterflys to name a few.

This windmill is AMAZING! The house itself is perfect for exploring the broads but it is so much more than that. The attention to detail is excellent and it is the quirkiest place we have ever stayed. The rope swing in the garden provided hours of entertainment for our children and the collection of Bond DVDs were a huge hit, as was the fishing! OuRead morer neighbours, THE COWS, were very friendly. We loved staying here and being able to explore The Norfolk Broads. NOTE:Check what linen is provided. Hide

Amazing location! It was such a delight to be able to see amazing wildlife right outside and we had some fantastic bird sightings including an owl. We didn't have great weather but the windmill was very warm and comfortable and was very well equipped. The stairs and beds are not designed for tall people, but my husband managed to cope at 6'4! It waRead mores fun to hire a boat for the day. The seals at Horsey beach and the walk to Thurne were highlights. There are some fantastic farm shops close by. Hide

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
