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?

Open daily from 10 - 4.Lovely riverside café in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Take your time over lunch or visit the birds and animals.

If you're visiting the animals, the goats and rabbits' area is open as usual, but the bird garden is currently closed while we get back to normal after the avian flu lockdown – so we're afraid you can't visit the ducks at the moment.

For that reason, we're waiving our normal admission in favour of a small contribution to help with the care and upkeep of the animals while we're unable to open all the animal areas.

The cafe's open to all as usual – no need for a ticket!
