Went on a Sunday on deal. A lovely place to stroll round to see the old buildings. There was also a vintage car rally on the day we visited which was an added bonus The Edwardian tea rooms are a delight. Well worth a visit.

We visited with 2 young children (under 7) on a groupon deal, and although buildings were interesting the windmill wasn't working (on a Sunday, surely a busy day for visitors?) and there weren't enough staff around to give information and keep children interested. Although there was someone about to do some cooking in the old house this wasn't evident unless... More

Thank you for your feedback on your visit, I will certainly feed your comments back to my colleagues. I am sorry the windmill wasn't sailing when you visited, our team of volunteers generally sails it on the first Sunday of every month (as long as there is enough wind!). We post details of these and all our other events on... More

A wonderful collection of old buildings replaced in a beautiful setting and you can see the labour of love that has gone into the rebuilding of them from their original sites. Everything from a Windmill to a post wartime Prefab and although it appears a massive site within the capabilities of most disabled persons . My one suggestion is a... More

We took the kids here as part of a groupon deal. We had an added bonus of it being "American Civil War" weekend so the kids had great fun pretending to be soldiers and watching the reenactment of the battles. The staff seem really friendly. There was a lady in one of the old houses baking biscuits and she spoke... More

We had a lovely time here, nice place to walk around. My little boy loved the telephone box section where you could ring from one phone to another. Not lots of buildings here but it was a nice afternoon to walk around. We liked the old jail and found the airade shelter interesting. I did think it was expensive for... More

Visited the Avoncroft on a discounted deal as I's never heard of it before and was pleasantly surprised. We received a very friendly and informative greeting on arrival an headed out on a lovely but a little windy day. The exhibits are well laid out, all with an information board giving excellent information, although there was the odd random item... More

we visited on a Friday with tickets purchased on Groupon for £3 each - had we just turned up the cost would have been £8.80 which would have made it a lot more expensive and not such good value. Disabled parking is very close to the entrance/ticket office, but there is quite a raised bit at the door and my... More

Thank you very much for your review, I have passed your comments on to my colleagues and we will certainly look at making things easier for visitors with mobility scooters to get into the shop. We do have an alternative flat access onto to site, apologies for the fact that this wasn't pointed out to you on your visit. More
