Lovely well laid out village atmosphere with lots of Live days each month.(Locals dress up in period costume and play period games / activities) We live locally and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

“one of the best tourist attractions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

live locally and can't believe this place isn't in all the tour guides. great place for a family trip and every overseas visitor I've taken here has loved the place. if you go during one of their "show" days (don't know what they're called) you can easily unleash the kids to play old fashioned games. not one moan from my boys that there was not an electronic game. should be at least a oncer for everyone. made my kids count their blessings.
