Jordans Mill - Broom

Friday 2 August 2019

I wrote this post back in 2014, and we revisited again last week, and they have had a change around, and now have a much larger restaurant, and the shop has moved to the edge of the mill and is much bigger, The gardens were much more established, and there are many benches to sit and admire.

2014 - all photos were from then - the gardens have really grown since, and were lovely.
It was a bright and sunny day a few months ago so we took ourselves off to Jordans Mill.  It isn't far from Ampthill and was only around 25 minutes.  They have recently had a major change and invested in the historic mill and site.  

They offer guided tours around the mill or you can just wander around and read through the information boards.  I will be honest and we didn't really spend much time in the Mill, there are lots of stairs and my companion wasn't feeling up to the climb!  

We just wandered around the gardens that are laid out neatly with a paths that takes you through, and loads of seating. 

There is also a meadow with a small wooded area to wander around too. 

The gardens aren't vast, but depending on the weather it can be a pleasant hour.

You can click through on the link above for lots more information about the site - this is the new building that houses the restaurant and a small shop. 

For those of you that have visited prior to the refurb and used to the 'factory shop' this has changed - the shop has a limited range, but does stock most of their products along with locally milled flour and some dried fruit and cereals, and on this latest visit the shop had moved again and had a wider range.

They have a range of cakes, snacks and refreshments and a lovely deck that looks over the water, with umbrellas for shade if required, and seating inside. 

I couldn't resist a picture of this cheeky chap that was climbing into a garden :)

We visited Parkside farmshop on the way there - it is only small but worth a visit and had a surprisingly amount of stock in there.
