Alderholt Mill

Alderholt Mill
There has been a Mill on this site since the 14th century, so the records inform us. The Mill machinery was worked commercially until 1947, since then it was left to fall into disrepair. It was fully restored and successfully produced flour again in 1987.
 
Alderholt Mill is a picturesque working Water Mill set in the lovely Dorset countryside, a real escape from the everyday pressures. An ideal spot in which to relax and unwind and a great situation from which to explore not only Dorset but also West Hampshire, Wiltshire and of course the New Forest.

The Mill is situated on an island formed by the River Allen, a small tributary that joins the River Avon at the nearby town of Fordingbridge.

The Mill house, once workers cottages, was converted in the 50's, and now accommodates 9 guests in comfortable surroundings.

The Mill is open for cream teas, sale of bread, flour etc, at weekends 2pm-6pm. A speciality is to offer bread made from its own freshly milled flour.

Milling demonstrations take place on Sundays at 3pm between Easter and October.
