Simonsbath Sawmill is an historic, water-powered sawmill and estate workshops lying in a beautiful riverside location in the heart of Exmoor National Park.

Simonsbath Sawmill

The sawmill is no longer in regular operational use but is maintained in working condition and is used for demonstration purposes and as the venue for educational events and activities.  It is cared for by a small team of volunteers who help with maintenance, lead tours and are researching the history of the mill.

The sawmill is open to the public on at least the third Monday of every month, from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm, when volunteers will be there to show people around. For other dates please see our List of Open Days.  Tours are free but donations towards the upkeep of the mill are very welcome. The volunteers are happy to open the mill for visits on other occasions by arrangement.  Please Contact Us
