This mill is also in the same location as the town's information centre. You can wander around to most areas free of charge. You can do tours of the operational mill and accompanying buildings for a fee.

The whole town is well worth the drive to see the beautiful scenery and buildings, but the Mill is really a must-see. Such lovely heritage that is so well preserved and you just wish you could see it running as it did back in the day. Don't pass through town without taking the time to stop and see it.

Needed a break from driving and wanted to see the mill. Did the tour. Informative, interesting, beautiful even! If you've never been there are are passing close by, you would be mad not to go there. Take a walk. The whole town is interesting...perhaps a little "touristie" but none the less interesting, taking you back to a bygone era. Not... More

We totally stumbled across the Mill and chose to do a tour. We thought the price was a little steep for a tour of a windmill but it was totally worth it in the end. It was just our family of 4 on the tour and the guide, Alison, was amazing with our 3 yr old on the steep stairs.... More

It is worth spending an hour walking around Callington Mill. You will see a lot of old stone houses around the mill.

Stumbled across this place by recommendation from a local at a fuel stop. What a find! Beautifully restored which apparently was driven largely by the local community. Great playground and cafe. Also able to buy flour from the mill which I am so excited to use 😀 Loved our hour here. Highly recommended

Lovely destination. Beautiful, even though it was raining, we enjoyed our visit. It's great to have a small lunch, incredibly charming.

One of two functional mills operating in the world, the other in the UK. The history is amazing as is the fact that the restoration involved the total rebuild and construction of the mechanics to ensure functionality. Well worth the tour and devour the surrounding scenery.
