About us

A little bit about us… was born at Bickleigh Mill (, a long established and popular shopping and dining venue in Devon, between Tiverton & Exeter on the A361.

Bickleigh Mill offers three floors of retail therapy, plus a delightful Bistro.

We are open 7 days a week from 10.00am, with late night shopping & dining on Thursday, Friday & Saturday.

This website offers our customers, both old & new, the opportunity to buy some of our treasures direct online, whilst maintaining the good 'old fashioned' service that we are proud to give. For the very best of both worlds give us a try today, we are confident that you won't be disappointed.

A brief history of the mill…

Bickleigh mill was built in the late 18th century and was milling corn until the devastating floods of the 1960's. Corn from surrounding farms was raised into the corn loft and then ground. The mill workings and water wheel are still on display. In 1973 the Mill, Bickleigh Farm and its land underwent a major change when it became the Devonshire Centre with crafts, a working farm and the mill. Today the farm is privately owned but Bickleigh Mill maintains its attraction as one of the most idyllic settings in the country.


From hand-thrown pottery to exotic gifts from around the world, Bickleigh Mill offers a huge range to suit all tastes. Whether it's a present for a special occasion, a holiday gift or just spoiling yourself, you won't leave empty-handed!


Set in the Old Mill House, our restaurant has such a warm and traditional atmosphere that it makes you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. Log fires during the winter months and views of the waterside gardens and mill wheel add something special to any occasion. Whether it's an intimate dinner for two, a celebratory party for friends and family or a simple snack lunch, our menu will fit the bill.


The old Corn Loft at Bickleigh Mill is a great setting for our children's store. Mums and dads looking for special nursery furnishings and furniture, or grandparents looking for quality activity toys, just need to pop upstairs and see for themselves the array of unusual and traditional gifts available. From baby, through childhood, we can help.

Idyllic River Walks…

Set in 10 acres of land, Bickleigh Mill has it's own waterways and walks that can make your visit complete. For any outdoor enthusiast this idyllic setting is a must.
