There's some great stuff happening at Claythorpe Watermill
See all events


Tranquil and lovely, Claythorpe Watermill is a small, family run destination set in the grounds of our 18th century watermill. The mill last ran in the late 1970s but you can still see the remaining millworks and learn more about its varied industrial history.Today the pace of life is slower. Enjoy the animals, sit by the river, soak up the atmosphere or unleash the kids on the swings.We're a small place and most people will allow a couple of hours for their visit, staying for coffee and cake or lunch in our excellent café, which is open to all (no need for a ticket to the grounds). But there’s no hurry so why not feed the birds and take your time over a relaxing visit and a glass of wine? We have great riverside dining through the summer evenings, and amazing outdoor movie nights in the late summer.
