It is a bit hidden away, just of the main road but it is a lovely gem to find.
The Mill and gardens are lovely and they make fresh home made scones that are wonderfull. They have a small play childerens play area just up on a garden terras.

I went to the mill as part of a group visit with the trefoil guild, Was great that they opened late for us! The mill tour was very interesting and the cream tea was one of the best i've had!
