I visited with my family on an august afternoon. The grounds are well kept and the village itself is lovely. The kids really enjoyed the activity trail. The staff were really welcoming and made sure our visit was excellent. It is reasonably priced and you can enjoy a cheap drink in the cafe. Prices: £4 Adults, £3.50 Children, £3.50 Concessions,...

We visited the model railway village simply because we were passing and it looked fun. My entire family - myself, my husband, and daughters aged 2 and 3 were absolutely entranced and delighted with the beautiful model village and railways with such lovely detail. Actually, my husband and I would have stayed for hours but the children wanted a paddle... More

Cost £11.50 for the 3 of us. Its not massive but there are lots of small details to look at. Its made better for the kids with an activity sheet, so they have to look for stuff to then complete a puzzle at the end which gives you the secret word. You get entered into a competition for free tickets.... More

Took the grandchildren here and they loved it, it was good doing the quiz whilst going round. The model trains are fantastic, couldn't believe they stop at red lights. Really good price too and very well looked after.

We paid £4 per adult and wandered around for ages enjoying the model village and trains. There is a competition to complete as you go round spotting things with a puzzle at the end. There are also lots of seating so you can rest for a while. Friendly staff. Small café near the entrance with good prices.
