  • I really enjoyed the visit. The costumed guides were EXTREMELY knowledgeable and gave very interesting account of life from an era long past. I learned a lot that day. You need to visit on a day when the guides are present though, as they are not on site everyday.
  • Fantastic place, extremely interesting and not expensive. Also loved how quiet it was
  • Interesting place with loads to see. Great value especially if you get the tickets on a deal such as Groupon.
  • A bit of a hidden gem, definitely pay it a visit when you are in the area.
  • Great place to take the kids, and it's a lovely woodland setting.
