The entry price was excellent value. It was reduced because the mill wasn't currently working (due to low water levels caused by a heat wave) but that didn't take anything away from the excellent atmosphere of the mill. There is real history here. Also the...More

Found Caudwells Mill quite by accident and so glad I did. I love to bake bread and whilst the results were okayish that completely changed after buying the flour from here. Not only that you can go and see the water driven mill at work...More

This is in such a picturesque setting, it's worth a visit just for that but then add in a decent cafe, some interesting crafts (wonderful handmade jewellery being one) and it's a lovely way to spend some time.

Craft Centre owner here, Thank you for your kind review, it is a beautiful place to work - we are very lucky!

A good place to visit when in the area. A water powered flour mill situated in beautiful sorroundings. A tour of the mill workings is to be recommended and the variety of flours produced on the premises is astounding, all at reasonable prices.

We followed the Brown Road signs to this location. There is good parking. This location is split into separate areas displaying stone, glass, craft shop, a working mill and a café. Well worth visit.
