Set in the shadow of the glorious Howgills near Sedbergh and restored from a Victorian woollen mill, Farfield Mill provides an excellent visit for arts and heritage enthusiasts alike. Take your time to discover a programme of top-quality exhibitions; a unique range of fine art and crafts created by resident and visiting artists; fascinating displays telling the history of the Mill; weekday demonstrations of weaving, rag-rugging or lace-making; rugs and throws produced on the mill’s own looms… plus Weavers Café for delicious food, including Farfield-made cakes, scones and daily specials and traditional Sunday Lunch (12-3).

This lovely mill, just outside Sedbergh is well worth a visit if you are in or near Sedbergh. There are lots of crafts to see and experience though you do have to pay an entrance fee which is a bit disappointing

On a day out we revisited this old mill and exhibition centre. The history of the mill is well described and the array of crafts impressive. We completed our visit with a trip to the cafe then a walk from the mill. Recommended for a visit particularly if a wet weather day is encountered.

Called in for lunch enroute to Yorkshire dales. Cafe was empty at the time. Ordered a ham baguette, chicken mayo baguette and two coffees. Cost was an amazing £15.90. These were the worst ever sandwiches, ham was wet and tasteless, chicken mayo had no flavour. The bread was the worst item. The baguettes were fridge cold and uncooked.I suspect that... More

This historic woolen four floor mill has been restored and is a mixture of museum, mostly about weaving, and workshops of arts and crafts people. There are lots of items on display for sale and these are high quality- woollen products and art, pictures, photos, jewellery, ceramics, books, etc. Normal entry price is £3.50 per person which is a fair...

Farfield Mill is always worth a visit. Exhibitions and craft displays change regularly. Some really high quality, craft work. Home cooked food in the Weavers' Cafe. We visit regularly and always enjoy it.

Called in here specifically to see The Lace Guild exhibition. In addition to the wonderful lace on display there was plenty of other crafts to see and to purchase. We spent a good few hours exploring the place. Worth a visit if you are nearby.

Love this place and have visited more than once. A wide range of interesting and unusual arts and crafts over several floors. The coffee shop is excellent with a good selection of drinks and food. Good disabled facilities.

We called after seeing the sign by the roadside and were surprised by the range of artisan crafts on view. The café was pleasant and served a range of meals and snacks at reasonable prices.
