Take your time
Claythorpe water mill and wildfowl gardens is just lovely, one of the most tranquil visitor attractions in Lincolnshire. An easy drive from Skegness, Mablethorpe, Louth and Lincoln, our eighteenth-century former watermill is home to native and exotic wildfowl, with pheasants, peacocks and owls, as well as our family of otters. And don’t forget to say hello to our marmosets, on your way in.
For a relaxing day with the kids…
…why not bring a picnic and watch the kids explore our woodland play area? We have slides and swings, places to hide and plenty to explore.
Or join us for lunch, coffee or cake in The Claythorpe Cafe. Most visitors choose to sit in the Wheel House, overlooking the mill pond and right above the mill race where the water rushes past the site of the old water wheel. Or you can dine inside, where the giant cogs and millstones are still on display as a reminder of our milling heritage.
