This is like a magical place with wonderful models of the village and really got the children's and adults' attention. The staff team is friendly. This place can get busy in the summer and may become a little cramped. Recommended for a leisurely way to spend half an hour or so while visiting Bourton on Water.

Fabulous model of the village of bourton on the water behind the old new inn. Also a small exhibition of model making costing £1 but well worth it

The kids loved the model village and fortunately we visited at a very quiet time. I can imagine it gets very busy here in the summer. A fun way to while away half an hour.

Very well done and the viewing platform which gives you a birds-eye view is an excellent idea. Wonderful to just stroll around and you can actually orientate almost as if you had a map!

I have seen many model villages but this one is one of the best as each building that is located in the village is in the model and decorated just as you would see it on the street, furthermore whats even more fascinating is the model is built in the same stone as the village itself "Cotswold."

We stumbled across the model village while trying to find parking and thought we may as well go have a look... this turned into one of the highlights of our weekend in Cotswolds, it is so realistic and is a great way to get an idea of where everything is in the actual village. Thought it was quite funny seeing... More

We visited the model village during our stay at Bourton and found it really interesting, The model was accurate, and the level of detail that had gone into it was brilliant- including all the shops and even a singing choir in the church! Would recomend a visit if you're in the area.
