Genuine enthusiasm to take us back in time.

Visited on a grey rainy day, not the best conditions for a visit to an open air museum. However it... read more

The weather was nice so we visited this museum and were genuinely surprised at how great it was.
The shop entrance leads you to a really interesting and special place.
It is spread over a large area there is a path which takes you round an array of different buildings from different times.
Around each building there are plants and fauna from the era. There are benches and seating everywhere so you can sit and enjoy the experience.
From an old Manor House with garden , Iron Age house, prefab ,barns and farm buildings to an old toll house and more.
There are tea rooms a candle making hut where you can try your hand and make a candle.
There is plenty of play areas and activities for children
Just a great outdoor day out destination. The staff and volunteers are charming and helpful. If you have mobility issues you can hire a scooter and if you want a lift back to the main car park they have a golf cart too come and get you.
Really special

Went with my family of mixed ages from my husband of 71 to my great granddaughter of 3. we all had a really great day. It was funny watching the kids washing dirty nappies using a washboard and dolly then putting them through the mangle. The old toilets opened their eyes and seeing how people used to live. The staff were all very friendly and we hope to come again as there is so much to see and do.

I took my daughter here and was so impressed we brought an annual pass as I know we will return many times. Such a lovely place for a walk, to experience history and to eat. Food is reasonably priced and very nice. Every staff member was extremely friendly and helpful. They have events on often during busier times which we haven’t experienced yet but certainly plan too.
Had such a great time

Two grand-parents, a 2 year-old, a 5 year-old and an elderly dog enjoyed their day on many levels. Grandpa enjoyed the car-show, especially being able to show the boys the model of car he first owned. The boys enjoyed the space to run around. The exhibits were all interesting. The cafe was good value.
Best all though was the unexpected pleasure of watching the boys dancing to the music of folk-singers under the huge tree in the village green. They'd have stayed there all day but the dog was feeling the heat so we had to leave,
Everyone there was very friendly and helpful too, which always improves a day out!
