“Working Windmill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

After travelling past numerous times admiring this 4 sailed piece of the past I finally got to go inside and I was not disappointed, we went around the inside of the mill reading the displays and trying out all the hands on fun (designed and placed there for children but also great for two grown women on a day out). They were not milling but you can telephone to check days if you want to go when they are, there are no refreshments at the windmill but there is a cafe in the courtyard (try a Luxury Sails Hot Chocolate for total indulgence in a cup or an Afternoon Tea if you are peckish) and a restaurant in front of the mill.

“Lovely venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Had a grest time looking round the exhibition, which was more extensive than I realised it would be. Windmill currently awaiting some repairs, but is still awesome! Also loved looking at the bees, as well as having a great meal at the adjoining Sails Cafe.

“Family Day Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Went with my wife, daughter, son in law & nearly 3 year old granddaughter. She loved the field with the play equipment, although the wood train, was the only thing she could play on. The other items were for older kids. But great to see all these wood play equipment. We went to the café, for a drink, which was very pleasant, and the staff were friendly. Overall, a good attraction.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

The museum is very educational and the whole place very interesting. The Sails restaurant/cafe has a good selection of food and refreshments. Tables in the courtyard make the visit with a snack or meal very enjoyable relaxing in the sun. Wonderful Easter Monday morning visit.

“windmill walks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Easy to access. Adjacent walks to wolds are very pleasant. Cafe rather mundane. Loos outside. Courtyard nice to sit in for a quick drink if the weather is fine. Poor selection of tourist info, postcards, souvenirs. Try the mill's flour
