A beauty spot by the river

We managed to pop out for a nice walk recently and ended up at the Old Mill at Lower Slaughter with it's beautiful cafe terrace overlooking the river Eye. This is a lovely spot after doing the walk between Lower and Upper Slaughter. After a browse around the Old Mill's shop you can sit on the terrace with a coffee and a big slice of cake and watch the ducks on the river. The Old Mill wheel still occasionally turns to give an even better atmosphere. It is like stepping back in time here and as the terrace is not particularly publicised it is usually nice and quiet.
As an alternative you can always have one of their home made ice creams - the brown bread flavour is my favourite one!
