Loved it. Amazing buildings including a windmill that moves to face the wind and an ice house. All the volunteers were friendly and very informative. Great cafe too. Definitely worth a few hours in winter and longer in summer.

It comprises of a number of buildings through the ages, including a windmill, gypsy caravan, barns and mills. You can explore Anderson shelters and pre-fab buildings, old cottages and little chapels. Great and very interesting... More

Visited with my kids and their cousins ranging in age from 18 months to 7 years and we all had a fantastic time. Loads to see and do. The post war prefabs and windmill were especially interesting to my kids, and there was lots of room for them to run around and let off steam. There were two well equipped... More

There is a fair bit here, a diverse range of well maintained buildings which cater for a broad age group. There are often themed events so it is a good idea to plan your visit and find out what is going on. Children seem to have fun and the tea room offers a good selection of cakes.
