We were fortunate that our holiday in Bournemouth coincided with the Village being open for visitors. Having read a book about the evacuation etc we wanted to see just what was there and thought we should probably allow an hour or so. We actually spent nearer four hours and was happy to pay the small donation requested. Plenty of parking available although not ideal for our elderly relative in a wheelchair due to the many slopes - we managed it though! We visited the old farm barn and the kindly provided toilets! A long but lovely walk down to the beach and on the way our granddaughter was delighted to see sheep, cows and even deer in the land around the path. Back to the village and the beautifully restored school and church. One could almost get into the mood of what it must have been like to live here before the MOD took it over and forced the residents to leave. A wonderful and evocative place to visit and we thoroughly recommend for all ages. No cage, no gift shops and no commercialism. Thanks for making it available for us to visit.
