Our Mill is complete with water wheel and from our upstairs Mill Bar you’ll have plenty to talk about as you enjoy our relaxed environment after your exhausting day of activities.
Locally sourced, freshly cooked home-style food with something for everyone. Unlike a hotel or conference centre the understated social atmosphere of the Mill means that you really can relax with your team and not feel uncomfortable about being dressed in your activity clothing.
Motorsport of any kind contributes to CO2 emissions, so we have invested in a 50kWp solar photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of our scrutineering building. The Carbon Trust calculates that this will offset as much as 23 Tonnes of emitted CO2 annually, (the same as taking 5 family cars off the road) as well as providing most of our on-site power requirements.
