We are about to leave Burcott Mill where we have stayed for the last four nights. I can really recommend this accommodation. Burcott Mill is a working flour mill and so in addition to providing very reasonably priced good accommodation you also get gorgeous organic fresh bread made on the premises with your breakfast. The breakfast is wonderful and the... More

Tour was informative and amusing. Welcome was warm and friendly, with real enthusiasm to share history and craft. Tea and cakes were a good way to end the visit. A very enjoyable and happy afternoon.

Had a really interesting tour, led by the Miller. He was friendly and great with the kids on the tour. My daughter enjoyed the experience, and got to feel some grain, and turn model stones to show how the flour is made. Scrummy cake and tea in the court yard afterwards. Definitely worth a trip for a few hours.

The Enthusiasm of the Mill Owner made this Tour. His knowledge of the subject of making Flour was outstanding, and to see the Mill working with the water wheel will not be forgotten. You can buy Flour at the venue, and at the end are invited to take Tea. Recommended.

The presence of a mill at Burcott can be traced back to the Domesday Book (1086). Although the mill and milling site at Burcott has changed during the past millennia, the current working watermill as seen today was built in the Victorian era. The mill was restored to working order by a retired engineer before being sold to the current... More

On the edge of the village of Wookey, a few miles from central Wells. Easy to get to / find, lots of off-road parking. Efficient booking on line, similarly efficient welcome. Clean, comfortable room, large soft double bed, good breakfast with local ingredients, free WiFi. We stayed in the Millwright's Loft, an attic conversion. As such headroom was limited, and... More
