Beautiful little museum and attached gift shop. The village is so lovely and walking around just takes you back in time and makes you wish you lived there. So quaint.

We stopped by Lower Slaughter on our drive through the Cotswolds. We’d already been to Broadway and Upper Slaughter. Master Five was getting fed up of bucolic landscapes and quaint cottages, though, so we enticed him to walk through Lower Slaughter with the potential possibility of something to eat. We had no idea what might be there at all, so we were very glad indeed to stumble upon the Old Mill Museum and gift shop!

I believe there were cakes available, but Master Five had set his mind on ice cream, so thankfully there was a small selection of these on offer too. The special flavour was elderflower and gooseberry, but I found this and other fruit-flavoured ice creams rather overwhelmed by the creaminess. This may appeal to others, I’m sure.

We eventually decided on flavours to suit all tastes. There was nowhere to eat inside, so we ended up sitting on the grass beside the river.

We can’t say what the museum was like, but the cafe section suited our requirements for the day quite well!

What a wonderful place! As a building the mill is a joy to behold and entering inside the Craft Museum and Shop, you are transported back in time to a more simple and happier time when life moved at a much slower pace. Always interesting items on show and for sale. Each visit is special for us.

Walked here via Bourton on the Water and had lunch outside next to the river. Lovely view of the ducks feeding.

Travelling through the Cotswolds it is easy to see how people living there might get overwhelmed and frustrated with strangers wandering through the tiny streets and even into private homes with their cameras and selfie-sticks. On the day that we visited the Mill, we had been ambling through the shop, found some good buys, and found ourselves in the back at the tea room. With 5 minutes to closing time I would not have been surprised to receive a "cold shoulder". Contrary to this we were welcomed by someone who was watering the garden and happily served fresh warm scones with clotted cream - yes the quintessential tea treat. Beautiful location on the river and definitely a lovely place to rest weary feet with a lovely cup of tea. Really cute restroom also with special effort to go beyond the norm.

We found the village and the mill charming. That said, as with other Cotswold villages, there were numerous Japanese and Chinese tourists. Just outside the mill, a local elderly lady with her husband pointed to me and my family (Asian) and said “these people are invading our village.” Hello, we speak English too and if you are going to criticize us then please do it in an obscure language. We were in your village to spend money but very disappointed by this incident. Frankly, I wouldn’t recommend this village to Asian tourists if that’s how some villagers feel.

At the back of this museum lies a wonderful tea room overlooking the countryside. Fresh cakes, tea and coffee overlooking the water and into the idyllic hillside. Very friendly staff and nothing too much trouble
