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

We stopped here, thinking that it was just a shop, but it is much more exciting. We were able to walk all around the mill, including the area close to the water turbines. All aspects of spinning and weaving is clearly explained so we thoroughly...More
