Alderholt Mill B&B

We mill our own flour for scones, cakes and bread

“An ideal retreat to unwind and really relax”

Welcome to Alderholt Mill, situated on the edge of The New Forest National Park, on the Hampshire – Dorset borders.

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, Salisbury and the Wiltshire Downs and of course the New Forest. We are in easy reach of the south coast, just a short drive from Bournemouth and Poole.

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.

There is a large garden with plenty of water features, a wildlife pond, bog garden, and stream where wildlife abounds. Kingfishers and herons are frequent visitors.

Private fishing is available. Grayling and Trout are two of the species in the river, and we can supply a bait fridge and lock up for fishing tackle. Early breakfasts are available for the real fishing enthusiasts.

A Wi-Fi connection is available throughout the property.

Access statement is available on request.

Cream Teas and our own flour

During the summer season, we open our tea room for freshly baked cream teas every Saturday and Sunday from 2pm – 6pm. We are also open for cream teas on bank holidays during the summer.

Sit and listen to the trickling of the streams, looking out over the beautiful English countryside whilst enjoying a quintessential part of British tradition.

Our cream teas are prepared using quality local produce including freshly ground flour from the mill itself.  For the more curious amongst you, we also have regular milling demonstrations on a Sunday afternoon at 3pm between Easter through to the end of August.  Our flour is also available to purchase both at the mill and in local outlets.

The wheat we mill is grown locally, keeping down the diesel miles. We have therefore been awarded the New Forest Marque – a sign and guarantee of local produce.
