Lovely windmill. Beautifully restored. There are 5 levels to view but if you're like me and don't like heights or ladders much you can sit and watch a DVD on the ground floor. Also means disabled / elderly people don't miss out on the enjoyment...More

This windmill has been done up really nicely and the surrounding fields and paths make for a nice short stroll with the dog. The cafe is very nice too.

We visited again this year and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed meeting Santa. He was very believable! Entrance price very reasonable and the toy she received was very good quality. Food and service in the cafe were brilliant.

Despite living locally for many years, I simply didn't know this place existed. The mill, saved and renovated over the past 30 years or so, is magnificent and the information from the volunteers is terrific. The coffee shop is perfect and the 'coffee, cake &...More
