We welcome bookings from business, schools, individuals and community groups to visit or to hold an event the Mill.

Are you seeking something different for your next family or corporate event?

At Combe Mill we can offer just what you are looking for.

Our Foreman’s Office will seat up to 24 for a meeting or presentation. It is complete with large screen display and its own kitchenette at which you can self-cater if you wish.  Washroom is adjacent.

Or you could book our riverside Tea Room for a less formal occasion – it will seat up to 12 indoors and more if you open the folding doors to the balcony to create an excellent space for a party or networking.

We are the ideal novel venue where you can provide your relations, friends, customers or clients with something different.

For something even more exciting why not take advantage of our blacksmith’s forge and book our blacksmithing experience to add another memorable dimension to your gathering.  Who could go home with a poker they have made and not remember kindly the host who made it possible?

Please get in touch with us to talk about your catering needs.

Looking for an experience with a difference?  Need an unusual gift? Why not try your hand at being a Blacksmith or learn to drive a Beam Engine?

An  experience voucher entitles the holder to a half-day at Combe Mill. The recipient will get a personally guided tour of the Mill and will have time under instruction to make a poker and toasting fork, or to start, run and stop the beam engine. 

A warm welcome awaits and refreshments can be purchased from the Tea Room when open.

The booking must be arranged in advance to suit availability but can usually be fixed for a half-day on Wednesday (blacksmithing) or a steaming Sunday (beam engine).

Please do not enquire about other days than advertised.

Costing from £50, vouchers can be purchased by paying for your experience in our web-site shop, using PayPal, and then clicking on the appropriate box below and completing the booking form.

If you would rather pay by cheque, then tick the relevant box on the booking form and send your payment made out to Combe Mill Society to:

Combe Mill, Blenheim Palace Sawmills, Combe, Oxfordshire, OX29 8ET

We work together with Blenheim Education to enable schools to enjoy all learning opportunities at Combe Mill and its surrounding countryside.

The Mill with its woodworking machinery, river Evenlode and neighbouring meadow leading to Mill Wood, exemplify the entire timber lifecycle from ‘sapling to sawdust’.

Schools wishing to book outdoor learning activities such as science and geography programmes should contact Alice Kirk  at Blenheim Education who manages these in partnership with Combe Mill.

Click below to visit the Blenheim Education website.

School organisers are welcome to work with us to create a one day or half day learning package at Combe Mill to explore STEM or social history topics.  We have already developed a range of learning modules that can form the basis of any visit.  Such visits can be arranged alongside the outdoor learning option.

Non-school community groups are also catered for.
