On th 5th April 2018. We picked up a leaflet about this attraction from a nearby farm shop. My husband and I arrived around 10.30am and were greeted with a very warm welcome from all the staff. After paying the very reasonable entrance fee we embarked on a guided tour. Our guide, Rob, was both charming and knowledgable. His enthusiasm was infectious and we learnt a lot. He interacted well with the children and really bought the mill to life for us.
The situation of the mill is beautiful and they have made the most of the land they have. They have planted some of each of the grains they mill in the little garden to show you the difference. It was great to be shown how the mill worked and what was needed to renovate it to its present condition.
Although we didn’t eat in the restaurant the staff there sold us some flour. The atmosphere in the whole place was warm and welcoming. We enjoyed the little shop too. There was a good selection of their products to buy, including bread. The staff bagging their products were happy to share what they were doing and explain where it was going. Rob explained where all the different parts of the wheels etc were made locally and when and how this information helped them to date the mill. They have filled the garden with lovely little touches. Craftsman made gates and barriers make it interesting and attractive.
Thank you to all the staff, especially Rob, for making this visit a definite highlight of our holiday.

Decided to visit this place while we were in the area, as it was not sightseeing weather! So glad we did. Run by two semi -retired gents ( and lots of others), Bill and Neil are passionate about their project and give a very interesting talk and tour for £4. We were also able to buy the flour they produce there, wholemeal, rye, spelt and others, for bread and biscuits. There is also a beautiful cafe for drinks and snacks. We had delicious leek and potato soup served with their own wholemeal bread of course. They also sell loaves of bread. Definitely worth a visit.

Old flour mill on river Wye that sat empty for years until someone restored it. Staffed entirely by volunteers who are very knowledgeable. They give daily tours, show you how the mill works and sell the flour. They have a cafe where you can eat lunch and buy baked goods and breads made with their flour. Nice picturesque setting with outdoor seating in warmer weather. Worth a visit.

I did a half day beginners bread baking course recently. It was very well organised and informative and the two loaves and six rolls I made turned out pretty well. I have done a bit of baking recently and this course was a good way of building on what I had learned from books. Nicola is a patient and effective teacher. Highly recommended.

A brilliant place to visit. Either walk around on your own or have a guided tour. We did the latter and found it very informative. Watched flour being bagged and then bought some to bring home (along with a boxed kit for sourdough bread).
Don't miss out on the fabulous food in the cafe and buy some ready made liaves to take home.
Well worth a return visit. Have been back for lunch several times.
