We thought it was very expensive for what it was,we always go to the model village In the I.o.w,they charge the same price and it is so well kept ,but this one was well below par, more could be done with the garden and trimming.

Such a fanatic little place. Me and my daughter loved walking around the model village, so much so that we went back the following day. The staff were more than happy to give us a talk about the history of the place.

It is not worth a special visit to see this model town, but if you are close by, it is probably worth a stop particularly if you should have children with you.
