The watermill is in a beautiful setting and it’s certainly worth a visit if you’re visiting the castle. We were welcomed by the lovely staff and bought some of the flour made on site.

Visited here as part of a visit to the castle. Loved the little mill - so clever and interesting. Enjoyed a cuppa and cake at the mill tea room - sat outside admiring the river and the birds.

Very interesting water mill with lots of info. Unfortunately we didn’t see it going in anger, but I imagine that would be even better. National trust tea rooms next door were very nice also.

A thoroughly enjoyable visit. Well worth the effort. It's set in the gardens of Dunster Castle, so you get two great attractions in one.
