The mill’s machinery was working when we arrived, and we just had time to whizz round before they closed for lunch at 12, restarting at 1pm. Had cake and tea in the cafe, which was good - especially the bara brith, which was lovely and...More

This is a manufacturing plant from another era. Definitely worth taking a look at the various machines used in the wool product manufacturing business. There are a lot of items of equipment operating, spinning, weaving etc, all seemed to be quite functional and operating. Definitely...More

What a fascinating place! If you are within reach of Trefriw (such as Conwy, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Llanrwst, Bodnant Gardens, Betws-y Coed), you might not be aware of this working woollen mill open to visitors. You can see how blankets and such are made right...More

This is an interesting venue to visit. We arrived just as a coach party was leaving. That was probably in our favour as the place is not large. There is a self guided tour over two floors and a series of out buildings. Do note...More

What a great place to visit. You can wander round the mill and see how woolen mills traditionally operate. The shop has some great gifts and the cafe is worth a visit too.

The mill is rambling and water-powered so there’s lots to explore, mostly under cover so great for a wet day. There is a tea room and a large shop which sells their products alongside other items. The woven products from here are beautiful and timeless.

The working woollen mill is such a interesting visit. The self guided tour starts at the stage of fleece and the various stages of treatment dyeing weaving until the finished product. You get a true understanding with what a busy and noisy environment these mills...More
