The tour is free and is very interesting, Mother Bernard who set up the mills was a force to be reckoned with!!
Shop is gorgeous too with lots to choose from, well worth a visit.

When we arrived we went on the self-guided tour of the history of the woollen mills which was very interesting. Then spent at least an hour viewing all the lovely things for sale in the very large shop, wishing we had more room in the car and not so far to travel. We ate twice in the cafe however. A snack and a lunch. Food is very good and the roof top terrace warm and sunny. Definitely worth a visit.

Interesting tour outlining the history of the mill. The rugs are particularly beautiful, using vibrant colours. They also stock a wonderful range of jewelry. The cafe is well worth a visit.

If you are passing Foxford you have to go in and have a look very interesting and a educationally tour too without been boring. There is also a lovely shop and cafe and there are bargains to be had and also good quality stuff o buy as gifts. Will be back again soon when I get the chance.

We dropped in here to get some woolen items. The shop is big and full of nice things that go above and beyond woolens. They have a table full of discontinued stuff as well. Ended up getting a blanket and sweater. The prices were cheaper than the shops, but the same as the mills shop in Westport. Recommended. On a side note, the cafe upstairs only does coffee and desserts/pastries, not hot food.
