Visited on a cold but dry day and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were friendly, knowledgable and took time to talk to everyone, answering questions and offering information about each house and era. It was lovely to see the bread dough rising in the toll house and go back later and try the freshly cooked rolls with home made butter.... More

This was the first collection of historic buildings in the UK; there's an interesting display describing how it began, together with a history of building and a good basic description of how the listing process works (something anyone interested in older buildings must wonder about). But we didn't look at that until the end of our visit, when we wanted... More

Visited for the first time today and was not at all disappointed, an amazing and well kept place to visit at any time of year and very reasonable admission charge. Delightful staff who are very knowledgeable about the buildings. Can't wait to visit again.
