  • We go there almost every year, and have been doing so ever since it first opened. There seems to be an element of pot luck with regard to buildings being staffed, but when they are, the staff are friendly and well-informed. We have taken our children, (when they were still at home), and now our grandchildren, there every year. Not because we 'drag them along', but because they want to go. There is plenty to discover every time. Interesting, historical, educational, and fun.
  • This is a lovely, quiet day out. All the old buildings can be explored as can the farm and woods. It is quite spread out so will be much better in dry weather. The children's play equipment is good, with 4 main pieces of equipment. The woodland walks are good, with interactive art along the way, and plenty of trees to climb! I've found its a good place to take friends with children, as there is a lot to interact with that stimulates play. The tea shop sells good food too!
  • I love the place, as a visitor & as a reenactor as I was, often, some 2 decades ago. I am so happy to see it still doing well & slowly growing. Hats off to you COAM!
  • Very interesting place. Lots activities throughout the month. Loved looking round the prefab brought back childhood memories. Even had a go at the candle making. Very well kept.
  • Ok. Bit expensive. Slightly run down
