A great day out for all the family, a place to take children and grandchildren to show them what life was like years ago. The old shop display brought back may childhood memories as did the display of tractors having grown up in the countryside. They have a wonderful restaurant with a varied selection of food from a quick snack... More

Anyone interested in old wares will find this collection mind boggling . HOW ? a person can collect SO much stuff is amazing ! Probably more for adults than children. The owner has provided a lovely spacious restaurant area and nice to relax, re-charge and go back in to see more treasures. Easy to get to off the south bound... More

Visited with family who have lived locally for years they thought it was just agricultural display. How surprised they were at the treasures on show, a nostalgic gem , a wonderful place to visit we enjoyed the time spent down memory lane, they intend to return, I look forward to visiting on my next journey to North Somerset.

Having been told several times in the past that this is a great place to visit, we finally got around to it. It's one of those places where there is more to see around every corner you turn, and one day wasn't really enough to look at everything there is to see as it really is crammed with "treasures". They... More

We have visited three times and always find something different to look at. There is so much to see - like an Alladin's cave. We go with different friends each time and they are fascinated with the collections especially the postboxes. Lovely cafe at a reasonable price.

I liked the layout and it is easy for the disabled to get around in their wheelchairs. The Cafe area is very nice and roomy.

We just loved this place. Initially I thought that the admission prices were quite steep but I can't wait to go back again because we just didn't have enough time to look at everything properly. It doesn't look huge from the outside but it is packed full of items that anyone over the age of 50 can reminisce over in... More

This was my second visit, this time with my son and his family, concerned my 7 year old grandson might be bored but he was amazed by things like old fashioned hoovers, telephones,mobile phones,, ,, hairdryers, televisions and especially the collection of tractors and agricultural machinery.
