Four senior visitors, we loved every step of this lovely model village. We really appreciated the great sense of humour that has been added to the display, make sure you take a closer look you’ll find it. The gardens around the site are beautifully kept...More

Went to this village in April when it was very cold but enjoyed looking around as it is very well laid out with plenty to see. Everything has been built to a good standard even though some of the models needed a touch of paint...More

On initial entrance I wasn’t sure we would stay here too long as it doesn’t initially look that big. It was also a little cold and windy. However, it’s surprising how much I got into it when the sun came out. We initially spent and...More

This was brilliant, having visited other model villages this was refreshingly different, there were buttons to press for the models to move where applicable, thoroughly enjoyed, and the cost included mini golf, which was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend a visit
