  • Great day! Many amazing historical items on display. Highlights for me were the toy shop, the school rooms and the radio repair shop. The village is clean and tidy and all the buildings are kept in good shape. Thanks.
  • We had a wonderful day. Going back soon. Loved it :-)
  • OMG! What an amazing place. You have to spend the whole day here to be able to see and experience everything. Take cash to experience the little extras.
  • Its been 2 yrs since our last visit. So much has been done. This place always impresses me. Staff great. You really need to spend the whole day. We spent 4 1/2 hrs and still didn't get to see it all. So much to look at. Lovely teahouse, good food and reasonably priced. Great coffee too!! .
  • Have a gander at how life used to be. Very worthwhile thing to do if in the area. Easy to “waste a whole day”.
