Rating this is difficult. Compared to similar attractions it's probably a 4, as a place to visit by itself it's nearer the 3 I've given it.
I bought tickets when they came up on an offer through Amazon Local, having heard of the mill but had never been there. A quick look around their website confirmed what I thought, that this was a small place and that although it was a working mill it wasn't worked full time. When I visited the wheel wasn't working and although some warping was done there was no weaving in progress. It was still interesting to see the tools and machinery and the videos were informative. It was very much as I expected and I've no doubt had I phoned beforehand I could have found out what days/times there would have been more activity.
As it was a sunny day the setting was magnificent, I could have sat and watched the river, ducks and fish for a lot longer than I did.
If you haven't looked at the website, or have and still think it's a family day out, be aware that you won't need to spend a lot of time there even if everything is working, but it's still worth a visit if you're interested in historical buildings and machinery.
(The cake I had in the tea room was very nice!)
