  • Hand sanitiser is available for all to use.
  • We've installed protective screens at till points.
  • Face coverings are recommended in enclosed, crowded areas. Thank you for supporting us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

This shop is located in the atmospheric 17th century stables and filled with original gifts and local products. Brimming with bright and sparkly things, you are sure to find something to tempt you, whether it's a treat for yourself or the perfect gift for a friend. 

Top tip: get the most from your visit to Dunster with a souvenir guidebook. With beautiful colour photographs, reconstruction drawings, historical images and tales, it's a great way to remember your visit and to get a glimpse into the areas that are still closed.

The working Watermill shop

It's been proven that you can bake the perfect loaf with some organic Dunster Watermill flour. There's been a mill here since Domesday and we usually mill here every week. If flour doesn’t take your fancy, how about some Dunster Watermill porridge or even a bag of muesli (made to our secret recipe)? The shop also stocks a range of other products, souvenirs and gifts. 

You will find our full range of mill products available in the Watermill shop.
