Welcome to Sacrewell

Sacrewell is a multi-award winning heritage farm attraction and 18th century watermill nestled between the historic city of Peterborough and the beautiful market town of Stamford.

Part of the William Scott Abbott Trust, which was founded in 1964 to provide an agricultural education for all, the centre has changed a lot over the years and previous visitors will know us as a lovely place for children to see the animals, run around in beautiful countryside and let off steam in our state-of-the-art Playbarn.

But there’s a lot more to Sacrewell.

Now, with the help of £1.4 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund, our grade II* listed watermill has been restored. Take a tour and find out the 2,000 year history of Sacrewell Mill; be inspired by the tale of our young 19th Century mill apprentice; and remember the Land Army Girls of the Second World War through their own words.

By partnering with breeders and owners, Sacrewell supports British Farmers and is home to rare breed British Landrace pigs and Lincoln Longwool sheep. Seasonal events range from our Lamb National to ploughing with vintage tractors. And don't forget we offer fun-filled birthday party packages for children up to the age of 12.

Make the most of the seasons at Sacrewell by becoming an annual or seasonal member.

Conveniently located just off the A1/A47 and with free parking, Sacrewell is the perfect stop for a quick cuppa and slice of cake in Origin8 café, or as a base for a few days by booking a pitch on our award winning campsite.

Animal Food and Lambing Season

We know our visitors love to get close to our farm animals by offering them some food, but there are times of the year when we have to put the needs of our animals first. It is normal practice for us to stop animal feeding during lambing season as we want to keep a close eye on what our new born lambs and their mothers are eating. You can find more information about this here.
