Attraction details
Owner description: Charlecote Mill is the last working water mill in Warwickshire and still operates commercially producing stoneground flours. The mill opens to the public on the second Sunday of the month and bank holidays throughout the summer from 11.00Am to 5.00Pm. Occasionally the open days are joined by local bakers and teas and home made cakes are always on offer. This is a very rare example of a fully working mill and well worth the visit.

Reviewed 28 May 2013

My wife and I have done a few mills and have enjoyed them all. Charlecote is only open occasionally, but when it is make a point of visiting for a very unique experience. The owners are friendly and informative and the visit has never failed to delight.

“Great day out and the free cake was to die for.”
Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

This is not open all year round so please see website before heading out. The walk from the car part to the mill is a little hard going but well worth it. The miller really loves his job and gives you the tour as he works. As a real full time working mill you get a real feeling of what it is like without the red rope holding you back so be carful with the little ones. Oh as I make my own bread the flour is out of this world.

“A Great Place to Visit”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

We visited over the May Day bank holiday. We were guided around the mill by a very informative and friendly man. My son loved it. It is in a beautiful setting. Just a small charge to get in. Flour etc. can be bought at the site. They also provided tea/coffee/squash plus cakes, which were free, although we gave a donation for them. I would definitely recommend a visit. Please note that there are no loos on site but we were directed to a nice pub not far away.

“Friendly, informative and value for money”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

A working mill that's only open once a month and at bank holidays, but it's a hidden gem. The volunteer staff were friendly and informative and happy to play along to a 4-year-old know-it-all. We had the pleasure of a guide all to ourselves and the tour was distinctly hands-on. A fascinating hour in a lovely setting not far from Charlecote Park. Best of all, there was free refreshments and home-made cake at the end (although we left a tip that was bigger than the entrance fee!)

Our little one was entranced and educated all at the same time.
