We went as a party of 6. We had coffee and teas with freshly baked fruit scones. My grandson had a fruit shoot. It was very clean and tidy and the lady serving was very friendly. We will definitely visit again.

This image does not show the state of that windmill today. The top The Vanes have all been removed some years ago. The roof now is that stuff you put on flat roofs. Shame I do remember when it lloked like the image shown.

Fulwell Windmill is currently undergoing renovations and should be complete by early 2018. A new Tearoom has already opened (Wed-Sat 10am-3pm). Lovely food freshly made on site. Pop in for updates on how the renovations are taking shape and for a cuppa!
