Fantastic place to visit
Had an amazing afternoon here - this surpassed all my expectations. Great for all the family - as well as the attractions we enjoyed a game of golf and fed the fish - only thing to mention is the car park isn't free - so don't get caught out! Hope to go back again soon.

A Mini Village With Big Enjoyment
A good place to visit as dogs are welcome and this is important to us. The models were very cleverly designed and each one is recognisable and very funny anecdotes and labels. It was much bigger than it looked but flowed easily and was fun and charming to walk around. There is also a free mini crazy golf room which makes a change to not charge for something like this and a joy to see. I really enjoyed myself and it is all so well maintained you can feel the passion of the people creating it.

Amazing
This model village is huge with everything in incredible detail all to scale let in this natural bowl so that when you come through the entrance you see the whole park laid out. With the miniature trees , complete details - including all of the houses have fully laid insides - tables chairs people WORKING televisions etc etc., after a while you start to feel that you are a giant rather than this is a model village. Takes a good 3 hours to really enjoy this place or more. they also have a fun 4d cinema to keep the kids entertained.
