The Mill

Our restored water mill is attached to the former bakery and is
recorded in the doomsday book. We have records and deeds on display
that go back to 1727. This is the only water mill in Dorset with
all of the original machinery and has been conserved to capture
this historic importance.

The Mill is arranged on three floors. The bin floor (where the finished
flour was weighed and bagged) is now a bedroom, dining and kitchen area.
The stone floor (where the mill stones grind the corn) is now the
living room and viewing area and the sack floor (where the sacks of
corn were hoisted into the grain hoppers) is now the master bedroom
with en-suite and viewing area.

Notes on accommodation

The Mill is child friendly although children must be supervised on the 2nd floor near to the viewing area.
You are advised that the ceilings are quite low approx 2m with some beams at 1.8m high on ground and first floor level. Children must be supervised in the outside orchard.
The track leading from the road to Hembury Mill can be uneven in places so may not suit some vehicles with low chassis.
