It was all enjoyable and interesting but the water mill the tour was excellent as was all the information given on the boat trip.

The cream tea was delicious.

23 September 2014 Terri United Kingdom

For us the Mill was much more interesting than the House. We also very much enjoyed the 45-minute boat-trip, and the somewhat idiosyncratic commentary by the boat's captain.

Cream tea (with 2 scones!) was all that could be asked for. Good to have wheat products for sale in the Mill -- not just "souvenirs".

The house was well documented and the staff very friendly. River trip very pretty. Archimedes screw very interesting

21 September 2014 Mrs M J Johnston United Kingdom

The sun shone and it was a delightful day. History of house and water mill fascinating. Gardens delightful. Guides in the rooms helpful and informative. Loved the boat trip. Having been probably wouldn't want to go again

Maybe scones for the Cream Tea could be slightly fresher!

21 September 2014 Rosie United Kingdom

The Boat trip was good. Also the afternoon tea. House experience was fine as well.
