Farfield Mill


Whether you're planning a visit to Farfield Mill, a walk in the Howgills or find yourself passing by en route to Wensleydale or The Lakes, you'll find a warm welcome at Weavers Café. 

Weavers serves a selection of excellent dishes ranging from homemade cakes and scones, to delicious light lunches, plus Farrer's freshly-ground, No 1 Blend coffee and Lakeland Special tea.

Our food is freshly prepared and cooked each day by our excellent cook. We have hot specials most days (including breakfasts), delicious home-made cakes and fresh scones.

There is no admission charge for you to sample the delights of Weavers at Farfield Mill; you can enjoy FREE parking and watch the master weaver at work during weekends on the dobcross looms through the adjoining viewing windows.

... and on Tuesdays, the regular Knit 'n' Natter group meets in the warm and friendly atmosphere of the café from 1pm for a couple of hours - why not come along with your 'stitchery' of any kind and join in... its FREE!! 

Don't forget during the warm weather we've got outside seating!
