This was a great way to spend an afternoon. Very well looked after and very realistic replicas of things we had seen during our holiday, also dog friendly, would highly recommend.

This is a beautifully kept attraction, it is practically manicured, Small entrance fee is well worth it, the models are detailed and there are humorous touches about the displays. Would recommend to couples and families.

We spent an afternoon wandering around this exceptional model village. The craftsmanship and work that has gone into building this village is extraordinary and the planting is outstanding. A small team maintaining the model village.

I hadn't been here for years so it was nice to revisit. So clever and good value for the entry price. Lots to see and the models are so realistic. Some even have background noise and/or music.
