Kernow Mills, the cornish word for Cornwall, is a unique shopping experience at the entrance to Cornwall in Saltash.
Kernow mills is designed like an old mill, there is even a working water wheel outside.
The shop sells a variety of locally made produce, ranging from cakes, biscuits, apple pies, ice cream, chutneys and of course Cornish beers and cider.
The shop also has an Edinborough Wollen mill fashion section for both men and women, there is alos another clothing area sells mostly outdoor clothing.
Other shopping areas within the building are the 'Tavern Dewas', a little store that sells all the Cornish ciders and ales. There is a shoe department, which sells some awesome wellys! There is even a section dedicated to all things golfing, clubs, balls and clothing! Other areas in the building sell ornaments, bedding and jewellry. Kernow Mills is one of those shops you can go into for a look and always leave with something.
The parking at Kernow Mills is free and there is plenty off it. The building is fully accessable to disabled people. There are a couple of steps up to the coffee shop but they do have a side entrance from outside which is flat. The building has toilets situated near the coffee shop.
The coffee shop at Kernow Mills sells a selection of hot and cold items, the majority of which is local produce. All the hot meals are prepared to order and there is a chill cabinet with lots of cakes and sandwiches.
There is plenty of seating in the coffee shop, the few times I have been there we havent stuggled for a seat. The prices are average, certain things seem quite pricey such as the cakes, but the drinks and other meals are reasonably priced.
Kernow Mills is just off a round about in St Germans, Saltash.
To get to Kernow Mills from Plymouth you need to take the A38 head over the Tamar Bridge to Trerulefoot, Kernow Mills is signposted and can be found just of the A374 on the road to Kingsand and the mill can be found just of the roundabout, It may sound complicated to find but the mill is signposted with the Brown signs right from Plymouth.
The Mill is Open all year, Open daily, Opening times vary through out the year so may be worth checking.
As this is a shopping place Entrance is free.
As a whole Kernow Mills is a good wet weather place to go, there is plenty to see and buy but some of it can be pricey.. But always worth a look around.
Summary: A great wet weather atteaction
