Things to do at Claythorpe Watermill review

Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens is a relatively small but very pretty attraction in Lincolnshire. Claythorpe is a very small village up near Alford. The mill itself is pretty much in the middle of nowhere and it is relatively well signposted. The mill, dating back to the 18th Century, is no longer a working mill. It has now been turned into a shop and cafe and some of the old mill equipment can still be seen inside.

Including lunch, we were there for around 3 hours. If you don’t stop for lunch you will possibly spend a couple of hours there. This is reflected in the price. There were many geese, ducks and peafowl wandering around which the kids will love. The main focus is on birds however they also have other animals, such as marmosets, otters, wallabies and more. These can be found via a few walkways around the edge of the mill area. Make sure you purchase some food for the ducks and the fish.

Over the road from the mill, there is a playground for the children. It is set amongst the trees which did mean there was quite a bit of bird poo on everything. That aside it was a fun area with all sorts of intriguing things to see and play on. We found a large play boot, toadstools, houses, tigers and more. The main play equipment is a large wooden structure with bridges, swings and slides.
