Interesting to walk around and see the miniature village of Bourton-on-the-water, and the model village within the model village! My wife and I visited it almost 20 years ago, and now brought our kids to see it too. Very nice handiwork, and well mantained.

This stone village was a fair replica of Bourton-on-the-Water. There was even a miniature version built within this model village, and an even smaller one within that! A pleasant way to spend half an hour, and the price was reasonable, especially as this model village...More
