I stumbled upon this site after taking a detiur and saw the directional sighn for it. Eventually came to it and though it looked It is in my opinion lovely in its original setting and in perfect context. it would look great in a photographic study or a calendar. The building is of an age that prevents access for the... More

We saw the signboard by accident at the main road and decided spontaniously to visit the mill. We did not regret as we learned a lot about the local history and the milling process. Many thanks to our competent guide!

What a brilliant building over 700 years old with all the origional machinary. Thank goodness these buildings are being preserved. They have two water wheels and demonstrate the art of milling flour although they dont sell it. The guide was so knowledgeable and passionate. They have a small shop and carpark and toilets. There are a lot of steps and... More

We recently enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at Stretton Watermill. There was much to keep the whole family entertained (2 adults and 2 children - 4yrs and 10 maths) - old bicycles demonstration, horse drawn carriage ride, tour of mill, apple juice and butter making. Would highly recommend a visit there - it's like stepping back in time.

A lovely location - good parking, toilets, millpond, picnic area, orchard, stable with exhibition, ancient mill with two working wheels. View the exhibition and working model of the watermill, then take the fascinating tour (small charge) to hear more about milling and see everything in action. Grind the wheat, hoist the grain sacks, see the elver traps. Excellent for children... More

We were after somewhere to fill a few hours and this place fits the bill perfectly. I wasn't expecting much, but it was perfect. The location was hidden away enough, but easy to get to from the main road, had a good sized, easy to find, and well maintained car park. The mill does tours around every half hour to... More

A very well restored and ineresting spot to visit vert friendly staff happy to provide all the benefits of their knowledge. Take the time to seek it out well worth a look, very educational for children to see the workings. Tour optional with or without it the guides are still very helpful.

A day out for our photographic group. So much of interest to see, history to hear the guide tell us and most importantly to photograph. The guides were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history of the mill it was a pleasure to listen to them. Thanks to them for allowing us to take photos from all perspectives and angles....
