We have spent a whole week searching out white stoneground bread flour - most of the stoneground flour is wholewheat. We were in the middle of deepest Suffolk and did not imagine that the flour would be difficult to find. Our last chance was this mill. They have a tiny shop with bread making products and a good selection of... More

This mill is located near Newmarket and a short drive from Cambridge or Mildenhall. I thought it was a nice windmill indeed, but if you spend too much time it could possibly get boring for some. You really only need about 30 minutes to see the mill inside and out. Now if you want to extend the day, you can... More

This is a gem in central Suffolk! The owner is a very polite and wonderful woman who has a long history with the windmill. A visit to the site takes you throughout this working windmill and views the functional components. There are also historical walks you can take throughout Bardwell, if you want to spend more time.

Called here when on holiday from North Wales. I have a passion for windmills and admire people who work hard to conserve them. One such lady is the adorable Enid Wheeler who I had the pleasure to meet. We were allowed to look around and climbed up a very steep ladder to the second level. Mrs Wheeler told us all... More

Myself & 3 sisters staying locally stopped at Bardwell Mill whilst following Millers Trail. The lady who owned the mill couldn't have been more welcoming. After having a good look around the Mill & shop we all sat in her lovely garden & had a cup of tea and a chat as though we were neighbours just popping next door!!

I have tried all the flours in and around Suffolk, and I can honestly say Bardwell Windmill is the best I have ever baked with.

Beautiful building with history in every nook and cranny. It's hard to deside what was best, the lovely owner, or the windmill itself. I loved it here and will be returning here soon!

My visit was on a day when a fete was being held to raise money for the windmill charity, so there were traction engines and very old cars on a nearby field, and crafts and raffle stalls just below the mill. Our guide explained that the mill was rebuilt to working order in the late 1980s and his father had... More
