A Pit Stop
Jul 2021
We haven't visited Meirion Mill in years, the last time we were here the cafe was located in the house by the entrance; now it is at the back, after a walk through the shop.

Not sure if the mill is still in action, but they did stock some beautiful Welsh tweed blankets and rugs, love spoons, quality leather goods and all the usual souvenirs, housewares etc.

Th cafe was quiet, indoor seating and sofas plus outdoor seating in an enclosed area at the rear, with picnic benches.

There are simple lunches for sale - baked potatoes, sandwiches etc; coffee and other hot drinks and a range of cakes. We each had coffee and cake; despite being individually wrapped in cling film (presumably to comply with covid restrictions), we found the cakes a little dry.

A good alternative to a fast food outlet when on a long journey (not that fast food outlets abound in rural Wales!)

Interesting pit stop, with a lovely Cafe
Jul 2019
Set in the beautiful Mawddach Valley, Meirion Mill lies in gorgeous spacious grounds with an imposing forest backdrop, the Mill itself is part Mill/Railway museum, Giftshop, Garden center, Cafe with dog friendly Gardens, The shop prices are way too high for the average pocket & in stark contrast to the cafe, where you can get a refreshing cuppa and something very tasty to eat at a reasonable price, there is also a lovely dog friendly seating area at the rear.

Stopped here for a coffee. Cafe cold. Had to keep our coats on. Coffee nice but small cups and not very hot. For £2.40 would expect bigger.

Went for shopping and lunch. Lovely food, very reasonable price and friendly staff. Got the sock yarn I needed, price and range was good. Wanted a new dress but nothing quite big enough which is probably more my problem than theirs!

King Arthur

The mill is a lovely shop with a cafe, the shop sells a large eclectic range of items - it’s almost like a garden centre just without the garden stuff. Cafè was quaint and peaceful, tea and scones were lovely. After walking around the shop a couple times nothing else much to do really. Outside at the top of the car park you can follow a path through Druid territory to a landmark that marks the spot where King Arthur fought his traitorous nephew... probably most interesting historical thing on sight. Also upon entering you pass by the old train station building.
Would recommend if you are in the area and looking for something local to do. If the weather is good there are plenty ty of great photo opportunities ✌🏻

'A new line?'
Jun 2019 • Couples
We dropped into Meirion Mill on our way to Wales.
It is a woollen mill, tourist attraction at Dinas Mawddwy, but was originally the Mawddwy Railway, rural line in the Dovey Valley that connected Dinas Mawddwy with a junction at Cemmaes Road railway station on the Newtown and Machynlleth Railway section of the Cambrian Railways.
So you could see it as a 'new type of line!'

Not far from the mill you will see the hardy Welsh Mountain sheep whose wool has always been important to the local economy. This is a connection which is reflected in the range of woollen goods, throws, tapestry bed covers and warm sheepskin slippers you will find on sale in the mill.

As well as knitting wool there are fabrics, buttons,ribbons and even various sizes of peg looms made in Powys.

Waterproof and outdoor clothing are on sale for countryside rambles and ranges of jewellery made in Wales. Gifts, house and home selections are also available
There is a coffee shop, but we didn't participate, thus, cannot comment.
It is however, an interesting tourist stop with lots of goods on offer, even though a touch on the expensive side!
