Beautiful location. Lots to see and learn about. I love the flour suvinear we bought to remind us of our trip to Dunster.

Definitely worth the visit with a quaint little gift shop. Well preserved and knowledgable staff. Lovely scenic walk down from the castle too!

To be honest with a two and a half year old in tow one doesn't get the best out of such attractions, having said that one never knows what will capture his imagination, here it was the water and all the handles and levers making various milling machinery work.

We loved the smell and ambiance in this surprisingly large eighteenth century mill, which is still fully functioning - flour and cerial being available to purchase on the way out.

What really "makes" this superb attraction however is the enthusiasm and knowledge of the staff and, particularly, volunteers, who run and manage it. Chris who showed endless patience, even managed to get my little Godson grinding corn! Even our Jack Russell friend enjoyed this particular National Trust experience! A great afternoon here.

Very educational and an amazing insight into years past. National Trust at its best. Amazing how to see the way that cereals are ground and what they are used for. The flour sold was reasonably priced. Quirky tea room, but even if they get it wrong it’s still great.

There cannot be many double overshot water wheels in preservation that are still in full working order like those at Dunster.
Fascinating to watch the process and learn the history - together with a very interesting collection of old implements - both mill related and otherwise.

A long steep walk to get to this, on roads with cars passing. The waterwheel was getting fixed so we did not see it in action. The walk from here to the castle in the gardens is stunning. No good if you have mobility issues as its uneven .

I've never seen such a wonderful piece of history, with many interesting items. The mill leads out onto beautiful gardens running up to the castle.

Great working mill, with 2 water wheels. Flour ground on site to make the scones and bread. Very interesting and knowledgeable staff. Have tea in the mill tea rooms!

Well maintained and interesting to see. Nice to see but as part of the experience of visiting Dunster castle and walking around the gardens

I loved this working mill they open at 10am but they don't start the watermill up till 11am but you can still look around it that first hour but go back after 11am and see it working. You can buy there own milled flour in the shop and my husband would recommend the musili he said it's really nice.
