Bit disappointing after paying £4.00 each for 5 us to visit so that's £20 English pounds the attraction is well made but your walking round somebody's back garden and not really worth the entrance fee in my eyes probably only there 20mins

Owners very unfriendly. We felt as if we were in their way, despite giving them £20 to see their garden! Also although a lot of skill had gone into making the buildings there was rubbish everywhere which showed a lack of care and respect for...More

We took our family and friends there today and it was amazing to see all the tiny little houses and the detail that went into them. Our toddlers had lots of fun throwing stones into the tiny stream.

There's been a great deal of hard work into the building of this village and plenty to see but it's let down by the grubby look of the lay out. The water is dirty and the village is scruffy.More
