  • Amazing tour, it was very interesting to see all the machines working. The Mills are very well restored and it’s very beautiful outside. The staff are very friendly and very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed it and I definitely recommend going😁
  • Very interesting visit! The guided tour was well done and the site is very nicely restored. The 15 min video is also recommended (I normally hate those but this one was nice)
  • A really interesting place to visit, both for the corn and flax mills. Joanne the tour guide was very good indeed, bringing the milling process and the dangers involved back then to life. Well worth a visit and surprisingly no entrance fee, particularly as Joanne's guided tour was so interesting and then you could read up the additional detail at your leisure. (Visited 24th July 2019, from England)
  • Lovely little spot, very friendly staff and super informative tour. All for free! My kids are 3 and 6 and absolutely loved it, especially when the tour guide turned off and on the big wheel!
  • Very nice place. Guide was really good. Place is remarkable .Must be seen at least once in live. If you are there.
