Just happened to find this on Tripadvisor, despite having visited Dorset many times during the last 30 years, and what a find! Stunning location, beautifully laid out with abundant benches situated in and around the mill and mill lake. This is a little haven of calm during the high season. There are a sprinkling of craft shops and galleries, all... More

My husband and I stopped here en route and discovered it had amazing cream teas. The jumbo or monster scones filled the entire plate with plenty of clotted cream and jam coupled with hot steaming tea. While we were tucking in we were greeted by the cockerel And chickens . Great shopping with unusual gifts . Well with a visit... More

If you are in the Bridport area then this could be a place to stop for tea. There is a cafe , a couple of gift shops, a "rural museum", lake, etc. It could benefit from some investment in tidying up the site. There were a couple of derelict barns which did not add anything to the location. Located down... More

On a warm sunny day in Dorset, there can be very few other places so simple and delightful to chill out and relax. The tea rooms are lovely with an extensive choice of Dorset fare including Apple cake with cream. However the most amazing adventure come when you enter the refurbished mill. This is not your typical sterile 'don't touch... More

Having so much enjoyed coming here in previous years we were wondering if anything had changed when we returned this year. I'm very glad to say that it is still as charming as ever. A delightful tea shop, and an interesting collection of arty crafty shops to browse around in. We sincerely hope it is still the same when we... More

It's lovely to see a watermill restored, though we saw no evidence that it now mills grain. The mill and museum were unattended so the largely unlabelled collection of artifacts, whilst interesting, went largely unexplained other than a brief history of the mill. The tearoom is pleasant and offered a very nice cream tea. Just above the mill is a... More

Although this is a bit off the beat and track, it is all the better for it. There is a campsite, which doesn't intrude at all into the gallery and art space. An old mill and quaint little tearoom serving light lunches and teas. There are various other workshops and a lovely stroll round the millpond with old tractors.

This is a great place and has a small campsite, a beautiful lake, a mill, several artisan shops and galleries and a superb small restaurant. The restaurant is very quaint and serves wonderful meals as well as delicious cream teas and various cakes. You can fish in the lake or take a picnic and sit around it. Look out for... More
