Quite small but so is Bourton on the Water! Its worth the entry fee and its fun to pick out the buildings that you've seen. Might be a bit tame for the older child.

A nice attraction that is being renovated. Just wonder why you have to pay extra for the miniature exhibition and not just add £1 on the entry price?

Thank you for your review,glad you enjoyed your visit.The model village doesn't own the miniatures,they used to be in the high street and moved to the model village thirteen years ago,and entry had been one pound ever since. Best regards.

Lovely little place. Good price and well kept up. Certainly worth a visit! Very quaint and perfect for a day at Bourton. We had a good time looking for the shops we'd been in (especially the Victorian Christmas shop)

Ensure youve walked the village first then visit the model; brings it to life very clever. Would be better to have entrance fee covering everything as there are little extras i.e £1 for admission to mini models and 20p per time on interactive. Model within...More

This model of the existing village is really good. There is a lot of attention to details and you can look into some of the buildings. Renovation is ongoing as well a some new buildings.

Although some restoration is in hand, it is a bit jaded with broken roofs, walls and net curtains hanging off. Still, at the price, it is fair value and young children will love it. You can pay extra to see another display, and then pay...More
