A delightful piece of late Elizabethan playfulness. Built for banquets and converted into a mill in the 19th century.
Bourne Mill is set in tranquil grounds next to a millpond and a bubbling stream. The mill is adorned with Elizabethan stepped 'Dutch' gables and still has a working waterwheel, which was originally used for milling flour.
Being a historical building there's no playground etc., but it's visually impressive and worth reminding the kids to pack their sketchbook. Check out our other listings within a short drive of here if you'd like to make a fuller day of it.
Please note the limited opening times.
March - October:
Wednesday to Sunday, the Watermill is open from 11.00; seasonal variations apply.
