Visited here with a 6 and 17 year old and we all enjoyed it. Little one particularly enjoyed hunting for gnomes !! It's a beautiful place for quality family time. We would have stayed longer than the hour and a half we did if it wasn't for the ominous dark clouds!!!!

First visited this Model Village in 1987 with my children, revisited it with my grandchildren recently. They loved it. Excellent quiz sheet directing you round the village ensuring that you do not miss any of the many detailed displays. Additional task for the wee ones to find the 12 hidden gnomes in the village with a prize at the end.... More

Had a great laugh discovering all these well built model buildings. Attention to detail was amazing. Following their trail is a must and their gnome hunt is great too. Very clean and well kept well worth a visit.

We enjoyed this attraction,not as much as expected but we had a lovely time liked the little quizzes but it kinda took it away from enjoying what we were there to see so after completing the quiz we took another look around. Maybe a good idea to give an option of route map or quiz. It could have done with... More

I have only been to one other model village and by comparison this one was a city! We took our 4 year old grandson who had a great time trying to find the gnomes that had been hidden in various places. He missed one but still got a lolly at the end. We took our time going round and must... More

Yes it costs over £20 for our family of four and yes you can get round it in under an hour. Coupled to this I have no comparisons to make as I have never been to another. However, having spent 3 times as much keeping kids amused on a pier for a few hours I found this little place a... More

Just visited and walked around the model village. All models are out if date, tired, and uninteresting and run down. Needs total overall and modernisation. No sound or other effects at any model. Only moving things are two shabby railway trains and a poor windmill. Don't waste your time or money £6.95each by visiting.
