With the help of our self-guided tours, you will have plenty of time to look at all of the exhibits, spending time learning more about the ones that interest you.
Visiting our World War Air Raid Shelter is a must – giving you a unique perspective of Coldharbour as you learn about the Mill at War.
You will learn about Steam power by discovering our complex of engines and boilers.
You will also have time to discover our community space at the Mill Pond, where you can walk around our meadow and see what wildlife you can find as you enjoy a peaceful meander in the Devon Countryside. It will also give you a chance to learn more about the Waterways around Coldharbour Mill and how vital they were to textile production.
Lastly, you will be able to find some special gifts for yourself or a loved one in our Shop followed by a visit  to our Grist Mill Café Bar to grab a light meal, got drinks and cakes.

Production Day Admission (Thursdays)

A Production Day includes all of the fun and elements of a Static day with the added bonus of being able to  experience the buzz of a lively factory floor as our Volunteers and Production Manager work on our heritage machinery.

You will get to see some of our textiles being created and understand the love and care that goes into each of our pieces of textile and the quality of the products you can then purchase in the Coldharbour Mill Shop.

Access

Most parts of the Museum are fully accessible via lift and disabled toilets are available in the Café & Main Toilet Block in the Mill Yard.
Physical access to the Main Factory is provided by two lifts, with each floor having ample space to manoeuvre.
Unfortunately, not all areas of the site are accessible such as the Beam Engine viewing platform, but we are working hard to make adaptations to improve access to all areas.

We now have an Access Tramper Buggy for use over at Project Splash! and the Mill Pond area. The Tramper is an all-terrain mobility scooter which can be borrowed to explore the community & wildlife space. The tramper is designed to handle the rougher ground and is easy to use.

Accessible parking bays are also available in the main car park which is just over the bridge from the entrance to the Mill.
