My Fiancée and I stayed at Clay Windmill for the second time to organise our wedding there in September. It is a lovely hotel and location and the people there are outstanding. Give them a try. You won’t be disappointed.

So pleased to read this - thank you for your lovely comments! I'm really sorry you didn't make it to the viewing gallery - maybe next time? The views are just fantastic up there - particularly on a clear day. Come again!!
