Exclusive tours of the mill​

Due to the recent events, we have had to pause tours of the Matthews Cotswold Flour mill. We will be in contact with more details when these are up and running again.


This offer is exclusive to Cotswold Baking Club Members. The day consists of intro teas and coffees and a presentation by one of the Matthews on the history and provenance of the mill. You will then be invited to take a tour of the mill learning how the milling process works and has changed over the years.

You will see each stage of the journey from grain testing, milling, packing and finally baking. We will have one of our bakers prepare some sample loaves to taste. 

Ensure you sign up to the baking club and look out for notifications for when we are able to run the tours of the mill again.
