Beautiful Butlins

Much photographed North Norfolk windmill that was the childhood home of the crooner James Blunt for sale for £2.9 million

Known for his directness on Twitter and either loved or loathed for his 2004 debut song You’re Beautiful, the Norfolk childhood home of James Blunt has recently been placed for sale for £2.9 million.

 

 

Described as “absolutely appealing to English eccentricity” by Country Life’s Penny Churchill and a holiday destination that is “even better than Butlins” by the Daily Telegraph’s Hattie Garlick, Cley Windmill at Cley-next-the-Sea operated as a mill from the 1820s until 1921. It was then converted into a private residence and subsequently a guesthouse and wedding venue in 1983. It stands on a ½ acre plot and has been owned and managed by Dr Julian and Carolyn Godlee since 2006.

 

 

Offering 3,745 square foot of space within the five storey windmill itself and 1,605 square foot of ancillary accommodation in two outbuildings, the property has a total of 11 bedroom suites. It can accommodate upto 24 guests, has a dining room that can cater for 32 covers and a licence for upto 50 wedding and house parties per year.

 

Featured as a channel indent for the BBC from 1975 to 1982, Cley Windmill has also been used by the corporation as a location in CBeebies’ Grandpa in My Pocket and in Conspirator starring Elizabeth Taylor in 1949. Other television appearances have included in the Ruth Rendell Murder Mystery An Affair in Mind in 1989, A Natural History with David Bellamy in 1986, Homes By The Sea with Charlie Luxton in 2016 and Coastal Villages with Penelope Keith in 2018.

 

Of the Grade II* listed Georgian windmill, Tom Godley of selling agents Strutt & Parker told the Eastern Daily Press:

 

“The new owner will become a custodian of the mill, but it really belongs to Norfolk. If you were to ask someone to pick a building that represents north Norfolk, it would be this. There’s nothing else like it, even if you go further along the coast.”
