Jersey's only working watermill
Jul 2021
Considering the building burnt down in 1969, it's been brilliantly restored. It was wonderful to see the mighty water wheel turning as it would have done in the 18th century.

The volunteers were lovely, giving us a fascinating tour of the upper floor. There's also a small cafe with seats in the herb garden.

The mill is within walking distance of the War Tunnels on a pleasant woodland path via Tesson Mill (also an NT property just down the valley).

You can get here from St Helier on bus 8. It's the next stop from the War Tunnels. Such a shame it's only open on Mondays and Tuesdays. Free admission for UK NT members or £4 for non-members.

This also combines well with a visit to Hamptonne country life museum which is 3km away via quiet green lanes.

On a drive around

Following the advice of our tour book Great Breaks in Jersey tour 4 we parked up and walked to the Moulin de Quetivel. It was closed so we couldn't see inside. It looked very ordinary but the walk was pleasant.

Not much to see
Aug 2019 • Couples
Only open on Mondays and Tuesdays at £3 per adult, but free for members of the National Trust. You can catch a bus from St Helier. We found that the National Trust for Jersey was less well advertised than other attractions. It only took a short while to look around, but there are paths to other things such as the lake that feeds the mill with water. Do plan to do other things on the same day. We went for a long coastal walk after visiting.

Fascinating insight into yesteryear
Jul 2018 • Couples
This is a beautifully restored working mill with a static exhibition full of fascinating information. The setting is beautiful, and is part of a new cycle/walking track which runs down the whole of this picturesque valley. There is a coffee shop and I bought a bag of the wholemeal flour which is ground there using the traditional milling method, which makes wonderful homemade bread.

Brilliant working mill
Sep 2018 • Couples
Albeit only on milling days. When we visited the main wheel was freewheeling, but with a good leaflet and plenty of signage, we were able to understand how the mill worked. Complemented with a history of milling, an exhibition of a typical miller's home and lots of artefacts this makes an interesting diversion from the war tunnels and the St Peter Valley walk.

The volunteer host was lovely and very helpful. We wish we were able to visit during one of the many events hosted each month.

Nice grounds - but CLOSED
Jul 2018 • Couples
This would have been nice to see, but is only open 2 days a week so we had to settle for the walk in the nearby woods and looking at the outside.

As a general note, this year is a poor year to see Jersey National Trust properties with many closed or only open restricted hours.

Very interesting!
Jul 2018 • Couples
Interesting place to visit in a lovely wooded setting. National Trust members go free but it is only £3 for Adults and £2 for children. A lot of ladder like steps over three storeys so wear sensible foot wear.

The only working water mill on Jersey!

Nice tea room and lovely walks through the woods.

Interesting place.

Fascinating to see how flour was killed in times gone by and the information was well laid out but you needed to be fit to climb all the stairs

Interesting working mill
Sep 2017 • Couples
Quaint little attraction which gives a lot of information about the milling process. Staff helpful although no tea room here. Worth a look and buy some milled flour.

Excellent restored mill
Sep 2017 • Friends
A lovingly restored working watermill with a few rooms to see. A very good but small cafe. The place is so well run by excellent enthusiastic staff.
