A perfect time out of the usual sightseeing routine. Loved everything about this place. The atmosphere, staff/volunteers, the historical building and most especially their setting.

We were given a very handy map of the location with the description and a little game to play (to look for clues). Although we are adults we would have loved to search for them, however our schedule didn´t alow us to stay longer. The set up of every house give you the feeling of a true home. The poeple who take care about this place really think about every possible detail to make the village look real. And they are doing an amazing job. Even the garden and the cart left on the "street" are on their right place!

This is the perfect day out - Mums, Dads, Grandparents can relax with a picnic while the kids enjoy the activities and fun of a fencible village. Home cooking over an open fire, blacksmiths working in the forge, the life of the charcoal burner, how clay pipes were made, soldiers in action.
