A brilliant day out, I'd highly recommend it! The course was great value for money, in a beautiful setting and with an ideal number of people (there were 5 on our course). We now have everything we need to start baking our own bread!

I am afraid we do not have the facilities to hold a wedding reception at the mill. Sorry!

No, I am afraid there is no cafe. The bakery sells bread and some cakes on a Saturday morning.
