Mills were built to grind the grain into flour and the island once boasted around one hundred watermills and windmills. Only two working mills survive today, Melin Llynnon and Melin Howell watermill.
There is no finer place to enjoy a traditional Welsh tea than the Llynnon tea room next door to the famous mill at Llanddeusant. Fine traditional home cooking can be enjoyed in beautiful surroundings and a varied menu can be sampled (as well as good old fashioned wholemeal flour, straight from the mill).
The Anglesey Craftworkers’ Guild Shop, situated below the tea room, stocks an array of products crafted on the Isle of Anglesey.
