Calbourne Water Mill is a beautiful place to visit, set in 35 acres of stunning rural landscape with doves, ducks and waterfowl and the friendly peacocks wandering freely.
The mill itself has existed for around 1,000 years and was first mentioned in the doomsday book A.D 1086 making it an original Isle of Wight destination. The mill is still working and has supplied flour and animal feeds to the people of the Isle of Wight over many years. Flour, muesli, and oats are still produced there and you can purchase these at the mill alongside jams and chutneys made at the mill.
Driven solely by the water wheel the stone mill (the oldest part of the mill) produces flour using grit stones and burr stones.The mill produces up to 60 tons of flour and oats each year. You can see a milling demonstration most days (except Saturdays) during the season.
You will also find museums on site, including Grandmas kitchen containing kitchen equipment through the ages. Granfers shed with tools from the past. The old bakery. The vintage television and camara room. The war museum full of memorabilia and finally the fire station containing a fire engine.
On a beautiful summers day you can sit and relax with a lovely cream tea purchased from the cafe or maybe an ice cream for the young ones. The cafe is a converted 17th century cattle barn and you can still see the marks where the cows rubbed against the pillars!
Wander up towards the barns and view the large portable steam engine and other old farming equipment. Visit the small windmill on the hill, and enjoy a walk by the river.
