We visited here while nearby in Beverley. Well worth a visit, a museum to walk around with lots of interesting artefacts and information.

“A lovely surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We were doing a short hike around Risby Park and Skidby village and passed this mill on our walk and decided to visit. It has toilets, cafe, a museum and the mill itself. As it was Monday the cafe wasn't open but the mill and museum is delightful. It is a four-sailed tower mill and was built in 1821. As well as the mill there is the East Riding Museum of rural life which is very informative about the mill and its workings and rural life in the Yorkshire Wolds in years gone by. The member of staff is passionate about the mill and is a mine of information. It is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

A little out of the way, but well worth a visit.
The kids loved looking for the hidden mice and owls in the museum, which was interesting in itself, and the chance for a little nature hunting in the grounds went down a treat.
We can also recommend the coffee, cake and ice cream in the cafe.

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Wasn't expecting much from skidby mill but had a great hour or two there with my sister and her kids. Interactive educational exhibits that don't bore you. Also a great tea room at the end of it -I can recommend the scones!
