Lovely afternoon spent here, most enjoyable. Lunch very nice and afternoon tea excellent. Well worth a visit.
My husband and I took my Mother in Law here as part of a pre-Mothers Day out; it was gloriously sunny and warm and we had a fabulous time. Highlights for us were (randomly) the telephone box collection, which sounds pretty dull but was actually so nice to see, as well as the toll house with the living actors, and... More
Great place to spend 4 hours walking around the different buildings. The Windmill was my highlight along with the excellent tearooms. We had taken the grandchildren and they were both enlightened and entertained.

My Wife and I visited using a Groupon Coupon and found the Museum to be a worthwhile visit.

The Post Mill was particularly good and we were shown around by one of the enthousiastic volunteers.... More

despite today;s weather, we had a fantastic time at the museum today. Thank you so much for such a warm welcome, we very much enjoyed taking to the guides in the chapel and windmill.

Museum is a group of buildings spread out over a couple of acres. Interesting to see the stages of preservation & restoration gone into them. Windmill was interesting & a knowledgeable guide showed us round. The cafe served good food & the service was also good.
