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.
