007 Mill, nestled on its very own ‘island’ in the shimmering Norfolk Broads, is the ideal escape for would-be secret agents in need of a well-deserved break!
Better still, you get to bring the family and the dogs along to enjoy the fun, too.
The 300-year-old windmill has not only been exquisitely converted for style and comfort, it was once owned by the late actor Sir Roger Moore – James Bond himself.
As such, there’s a glamorously quirky ‘film set’ feel running through the tasteful interiors, along with more than a few Bond-themed accessories to leave you feeling shaken and stirred!
Sleeping a maximum of (00)7 guests, you’ll enter the enchanting mill into the circular industrial-style kitchen… which we’re sure you’ll agree is a joy to cook in, with its gleaming electric oven and hob, and plenty of space to whip up movie-style banquets.
Take them up to the enchanting film-themed lounge and diner, complete with squishy sofas – one of which transforms into a double sofa bed when needed – a feature wood-burner, and a huge Smart TV and entertainment system. Oh, and there’s also a telescope for stargazers (or undercover spies who need to keep an eye out for evil adversaries!)
If you’re in the mood for al fresco dining by sunset, simply grab your Martinis and head through the double patio doors to the sumptuous, south facing decking area… where the views are sure to captivate you all evening long.Keep reading
