Nice family day out - wholesome fun with no riff raff about! A pleasant experience with no rush or clutter and a very relaxing experience even with boisterous young family. Some of the models are very dainty and lifelike - certainly recommend!

A delightful treat of seeing the expansive dream of a gentleman in the 1930's who dug out a swimming pool in his back garden and used the mounds of extracted dirt to start a model village. It's a beautiful example of what life was like...More

There are picnic tables on a small grassed area and a cafe. There is room to keep your buggy with you around the village. There is also a good play area.
