The delightful setting of this mill is only the start of what's on offer at Houghton. This is a working mill but you need to check opening times if you want to experience the inner workings.

Lovely walking area in summer sun, the Mill has a lovely walk through and opens up to open fields along the river. One side of the mill is ideal for swimming and paddling with small kids. Highly recommend for a visit and has a lovely cafe on site by the river, parking was really cheap for parking on site.

Lovely walks along the river and good picnic areas, with pleasant cafe. The Mill has exhibitions on different floors as well as allowing you to see the workings which are still operational. Helpful guides.
