Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens has long been one of Lincolnshire’s most beautiful and unusual family attractions and its new owners have breathed new life into the idyllic Grade II listed mill.
When they took over in July last year, they introduced a simple motto – ‘Take your time’. Admission prices have been reduced, and your ticket now allows you to come back as often as you like for a whole year, so you can return to the tranquil setting, gorgeous animals, kids’ play area and fabulous Wheel House Café as often as you like. The café, for ticket holders only, is part of Select Lincolnshire and serves fantastic ploughman’s lunches, fresh sandwiches, homemade cakes and, according to one lady, ‘the best quiche I’ve ever tasted’. Open daily until the end of October, Claythorpe offers a little something for everyone – and something for every little one.
Claythorpe is just outside Aby, near Alford. Follow the brown signs, or satnav LN13 0DU. For more see www.claythorpewatermill.com, follow us on Facebook or Twitter, or call 01507 451366.
