Are you looking for somewhere to spend quality time? We're proud of our special watermill that has something for everyone.
This charming site embodies the Lake District’s authentic heritage. It is the last remaining working water-powered corn mill in the Lake District National Park.
Do you want to spend regular time at our lovely watermill? We're looking for more volunteers to support the running of this community asset.

Eskdale Mill is a unique experience, nestled in one of the Lake District's most beautiful locations.

Welcome to Eskdale Mill

3rd July – Following government and tourism industry guidelines, we are making preparations to re-open so that we can continue to provide a safe and enjoyable space for everyone, including our volunteers. We are not yet ready. Once all of our new measures are in place, we will let you know what we’ve done.

In the meantime, do visit our pages and follow us on social media. You can also provide support by becoming a member. See our members page for more information.

Come, visit us and enjoy our newly restored waterwheels, machinery and sensory exhibitions. Suitable for all ages and abilities, including well-behaved dogs. We are wheelchair friendly in limited places.

Summer opening times are from 10.30-16.30 on Weds-Sun only. We suggest you give yourself at least half an hour for your visit or as long as you want!

This historic building and its working machinery are rare survivors of a bygone age. Find out more about the mill’s history here.
