We decided to visit the Gardens at Jordans Mill in Bedfordshire, which was our first time visiting here. The mill tour is currently closed; however, we only planned to stay outdoors.
The main car park was closed, but parking was available at the front of the mill. For the Mill Gardens, there was a one-way system in place for us to go around.
They also had plenty of signage with guidelines for social distancing and arrows for direction.
We did not go into the mill meadow this time, only the gardens, but my son marvelled at the oats, wheat, leeks, legumes, rye, flower displays, and all that the gardens had to offer.
It was also a great learning experience for him to see the grains that are used in cereals, as well as looking at other crops.
There is access information on their website, which outlines that the mill gardens access offers wide pathways, which is suitable for wheelchair users. (https://jordansmill.com/images/docs/access-statement.pdf )
At the mill, the coffee bar was opened to order take away food and drink, then eat it on the outside decked terrace.
Overall, what we liked was there was ample space to move freely, the environment was peaceful, and we could admire everything at our leisure.
