Calbourne Watermill -> My second visit.
It was a beautiful day also, which made it even better. The museums - interesting and the watermill (which you can go inside) also interesting. Birds (geese, ducks, doves, pigeons, peacocks - you name it!) - there to feed, The very small, but cute windmill - picturesque! The tearooms were lovely just a shame there was alot of wasps around, but that is no fault of their own, wasps will be wasps!!
The Boating lake was probably the highlight of the morning - you can hire pedalos, rowing boats or punting boats. Didn't bother going on a pedalo as everyone who was in one looked as though they were struggling to keep afloat. We went on a rowing boat which was good fun and half an hour for £5 is a bargain, really. However, you do not get given lifejackets, which is something I think Calbourne watermill should consider, although the water did look quite shallow. Overall a good morning, with swings for children to enjoy, Bygone museums for families and much more.
This place really is a hidden gem and brings a lot to the island. I recommend a trip.
