The beautiful village of Cley-next-the Sea is roughly 4 miles from Holt on the breathtaking north Norfolk coast. Its windmill dates from around the early 18th century and overlooks Cley Bird Sanctuary. Cley windmill has been transformed into a small guesthouse, with the surrounding boathouse and sheds also now holiday accommodation. Cley attracts many visitors, especially those that have an interest in bird life. There are over 400 acres of marshland, many boardwalks and bird hides and Bittern and Avocet can sometimes be spotted as well as rare migrant birds. St Margaret's church, which overlooks the Glaven valley, dates in part to the 13th century and is a very dominating feature of the village.
