  • The mill itself is interesting as it shows lots of little interactive mock ups of the mechanisms in the mill. The surrounding space is nice for a leisurely walk along the river.

  • We have stayed here many times over the last few years and have always enjoyed ourselves. It is in a beautiful setting on the river. (National trust land)Great if you have dogs although we did notice during our stay not many owners had picked up their dog poo. Lots of people picnic by the mill so dog poo laying around not nice.The site is well kept and toilets clean. Two good pubs within walking distance as well as a well stocked village shop. St Ives and Huntington not far. So lots to do. The garden centre close by is worth a visit. There is a tearoom adjacent to the site but this is expensive and not a huge choice on the menu. There is also a very small tearoom in the village. This site is well worth a visit but the area gets really busy in the nice weather as its a popular picnic spot
  • Superb site. Quiet nice size site. Very clean. Friendly staff. Will definitely return next season.
  • Beautiful scenery. Working mill that is ideal for families. .kids can have a go at milling flour. Inexpensive rowing boat and punt hire. Really good day out
  • It is the oldest working water mill on the River Great Ouse. The staff are very knowledgeable. It is an interesting building
  • Well worth a visit, beautiful building in stunning surroundings with tranquil walks.
