  • A fantastic way to spend an afternoon with great owner and really fun way to see how things have changed over the years.
  • interesting for adults, shame the play tractors need up dating, and play area. not worth the money. owners a little odd. a miss for me.
  • Very interesting place and very scary... Owner say that in the territory have ghosts. And I trust to him... He and his wife too little scary...
  • Today has been one filled with memories of my childhood and toys and books of my history. Christmas presents , my working life in Corgi, Mettoys and so much more. Victorean dolls houses, muffin the mule, even Spice girl dolls and victorian dolls of the scary type. The welcome was warm and friendly, tea excellent, a place to visit again without doubt. The cafe come shop, is a treat, locals pop in for a cuppa. Honestly, a day of warmth and nostagia. Thank you both, definatley a return visit is on the list. Angela
