  • Small but beautiful, picturesque and, given it's town location, surprisingly tranquil. A beautiful old mill with working water wheel nestled next to duck filled pond. You're never going to stay all day here but a lovely place for a mooch around, a picnic and a spot of duck feeding. Staff were very friendly and helpful too.
  • Small but extremely picturesque National Trust Property. Bourne Mill is a 16th Century building, set alongside a large pond. Its grounds may not be large, but they are charming nonetheless. The outdoor sitting area provides an excellent place to stop for a cup of tea or coffee, next to the pond. The mill itself provides an excellent glimpse into the local happenings during Elizabethan times, and the working water wheel is a sight worth seeing. On a nice day, this place also provides plenty of photo opportunities.
  • Seeing the wheel start up was fascinating
  • Very small Elizabethan water mill.
  • Great place to go
