Bickleigh Mill was built in the late 18th century and was milling corn until the devastating floods of the 1960’s. Today the Bickleigh Mill offers three floors of retail therapy, plus a delightful Bistro.

Whether it’s a present for a special occasion, a holiday gift or just spoiling yourself, you won’t leave empty-handed Dine - Set in the Old Mill House, our restaurant has such a warm and traditional atmosphere that it makes you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. Log fires during the winter months and views of the waterside gardens and mill wheel add something special to any occasion. Bickleigh Mill is adjacent to the Exe Valley Way in beautiful Mid-Devon, the shop boasts a dedicated toy floor and is dog friendly so the perfect place to visit with the whole family!

Lovely comments and well received by staff and owners alike. Coincidentally we have just commissioned a new sign for the Mills Entrance titled Mid Devon's hidden gem. Thanks for the reassurance that we've got it right!
