Why not try one of our freshly baked scones, made with our very own flour?

Treat yourself to a delicious cream tea, a slice of homemade cake, an ice cream or savoury snack in our cosy riverside tea-room. Delicious scones are baked daily here at Houghton using our own freshly milled wholemeal flour. Why not try baking them yourself following our simple recipe? Throughout the winter the tea-room will open for weekends, so you can warm up with a hot drink and seasonal fayre.

Buy freshly ground wholemeal flour

You can buy 1.5kg and 500g bags of freshly stoneground wholemeal flour at Houghton Mill (while stocks last) along with our handy recipe leaflet for creating lots of tasty dishes at home.

Picnic or a pub?

Enjoying a family picnic

There are plenty of perfect picnic spots to be had along Houghton's river banks and meadows.

Several welcoming pubs can be found in the villages of Houghton, Hemingford Abbots and Hemingford Grey.
