Have been here many times now with our 3 grandsons, they all love it. Always something new to spot and new items every year. Lovely setting in beautiful well kept gardens.

Whilst visiting Yarmouth we decided to go to the model village. It is certainly worth a visit. Lots to see and well maintained. A lot of thought has been given to the layout and structures. Well done.
