About Old Corn Mill

Hele Corn Mill (or 'Old Corn Mill') dates from 1525 and is a unique watermill in North Devon. Located just 300m from stunning Hele Bay beach, a visit to the mill makes a perfect family visit.
Guided tours are given by the family who run the mill, and children and adults alike will enjoy learning about the history of the mill, from how flour has been made here over the centuries, to some of the mishaps which have befallen the millers! To keep children entertained we have photo quiz, 'find the mice' and 'count the millstone' challenges.
One of the highlights of our tour is our 1920s National engine which is in full working order and can be demonstrated for you in our guided tours.
The Miller's Wife tearoom has won the Devon Life "Best Tearoom" award in both 2013 and 2014 and serves cream teas and mill-made cakes, many made with our specially milled Wholemeal flour.

Access: The tearoom is accessible for wheelchairs but unfortunately the mill itself has steps and uneven flooring.
Dogs welcome in the tearoom and teagarden but not the mill itself.
