This was another surprise place that exceeded our expectations. We were able to park in the small carpark opposite and were warmly greeted. We were given the most expansive tour of the Corn Mill with plenty of time to take photographs and take in all the details. This is still a working mill but they aren't allowed to sell the flour, so it goes to a local bakery and the products are donated to charity. This is a unique mill in that the living accommodation was built in the original construction and given the high risk of combustion they had to install a fire wall. Probably not suitable for those less mobile visitors as there are quite a few stairs to climb. There is a small gift shop on the ground floor. We can highly recommend this place to fellow travellers.

Great interesting working mill. Fabulous introductory video - informative but not too long. Plenty to see here; lovely helpful staff. Operation depends on the availability of water in the millpond, of course. Do wander up to the millpond. This is a lovely little area

We much enjoyed our visit, especially thanks to a really friendly and helpful custodian who went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that our daughter (in a wheelchair) could get into the ground floor of the mill house so she could enjoy the experience too. He was also very knowledgeable and although the mill wheel wasn't turning when we visited, we could get a very good feel for what it must have been like. Would thoroughly recommend a visit here.

... if you are touring around Dumfries the Corn Mill is a great place to pop in for a slice of history. Sweetheart Abbey is close by. Interactive stuff and plenty of information to take in of a piece of yesteryear. Worth an hour of anyones day.

I didn't know what to expect from my visit here to New Abbey Corn Mill. I was surprised to be given a tour of the mill but it really made the experience. The passion of the guide and the history she was able to impart was very informative and engaging. The little garden with the stream and the mill wheel was a highlight as well as being able to see all the machinery. A very enjoyable visit.
