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.
