Most mills sit in a rural riverside location, and Dalgarven is no exception. Visitors may walk by the river or trace the mill lade and sluices or alternatively leave their car here and walk up into the surrounding countryside. Many people choose to stay near the buildings and enjoy the sight and sound of the water wheel. Many choose to do the latter while enjoying some excellent food on our terrace.
In spring and summer the riverside abounds with wild flowers which are a temptation for many species of birds and insects.
Our unique sandbed or river beach provides a sheltered environment where parents and younger children can enjoy the river.
