We visited after going to Hardwick Hall, but it would have been easier to go before!! This is a quaint working mill and the staff there are fantastic. They were so enthusiastic and gave individual tours. The mill is tiny so you will only be there for about 30 minutes but it definitely worth a look. There is some interesting... More

This at the start of the road up to Hardwick Hall. It is really brought to life by the volunteers who guide you round the mill. It is a short tour as the mill is not large. Great information about the Duke of Devonshire who owned so much land and had so much money to make his own flour. As... More

Numerous times I have driven past this place but not today. Wonderful old Mill with a fantastic history and in working order. The guides were also very knowledgeable

Join the National Trust, Or, pay 7 quid or so to visit the mill, which isn't really worth it. Fascinating place but only VFM for NT members

We went here last weekend 9/08/2015. I saw it on an app on my phone that said it was near to where we were and so we thought why not go. We did, and how delightful it was. It was tucked away and the signage was good but were you not looking for it you may have missed it. It... More

A real magical place to see inside and out. Staff very friendly and passionate about such an amazing structure. I would stay for an hour max. Perfect if you have a national trust card.

I cannot recommend this mill and the volunteers who run it enough. We had a guide tour and Danny one of the volunteers who talked us through the workings of the mill was very thorough and very helpful. It is brilliant that this mill is in the hands of the National Trust who will preserve this fantastic piece of social... More

Well worth a visit, to see this old watermill working. The volunteers are really passionate about it and that comes across when they tell you about it. And great to be able to buy freshly ground flour.

We got there when it opened and the two of us had a tour guide to ourselves. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was very informative and not too long. Can't wait to try the scones from the flour we bought. We went there before moving on to Hardwicke Hall.
