Wembury Old Mill
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There was a mill on Wembury Beach as early as 1581. The mill ceased operation in 1900, and the miller's house beside the mill is now let as a holiday cottage. A short stroll from the mill leads to the remains of a WWII pillbox built to protect against a possible beach invasion.
The South West Coast Path runs beside the property and provides excellent walks along the coast in both directions.
