A brilliant day out, I'd highly recommend it! The course was great value for money, in a beautiful setting and with an ideal number of people (there were 5 on our course). We now have everything we need to start baking our own bread!

Splendid working mill, showing the history of the mill and its place in the local environment. Described are the full workings which you can see first hand. You can buy freshly ground flour and other products. Great place all round.

No, I am afraid there is no cafe. The bakery sells bread and some cakes on a Saturday morning.
