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


We are hosting a spooky walk event for Halloween on Sunday 31st October, 10am-4.30pm. As part of a group, you will have chance to discover the ‘corpse road’ above Boot village that leads from Wasdale to Eskdale. Myths & legends of our ghoulish fells will be shared by Alan Cleaver and Lesley Park as featured in their book “The Corpse Roads of Cumbria”. For more information and for bookings, please see our news page here.

Come and visit Eskdale Mill!

Immerse yourself in our natural surroundings and enjoy our delightful water cornmill.

Whilst visiting Eskdale valley, come and enjoy the newly restored waterwheels, milling machinery and interactive exhibitions. Step back in time and escape the daily grind! Picnic in our wooded grounds. Relax in our beckside lawned garden. Find peace alongside the sound of flowing water. There’s fun activities for all the family. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome.
