We went on May Day (bank holiday) and the village was quite busy and The Model Village had a small line to get in and was hard to get any decent photos or spend time looking as there was so many people. It was quite darling and would be cute to see in the wintertime.

I've not visited this attraction in 30 years and it has not let me down. In fact, I can now appreciate the work that has gone into maintaining it so much more. I loved that the shops have been kept updated with their modern counterparts. The sounds from the church were a nice touch. I didn't manage to see the... More

A wonderful place for old and young. The amazing detail of the properties which are actually in Bourton. We'll worth a visit and even a second visit.

Great little attraction and worth a visit if you are going to visit Bourton anyway. It is what is says - a model village of the main part of Bourton-on-the-Water. And it's very nicely done. If you have kids they should love it as they would have great fun identifying where they have visited if they have already seem one... More

Not something you visit very often but would recommend it. The model is of Bourton on the Water and is created from traditional Cotswold stone. The fine details including the stream, curtains at the windows, a choir signing in the chapel and even the plants in the gardens added to the charm. It isn't a big model and we were... More

Went to this place on a Saturday afternoon. It wasn't overly busy. It was £3.70 per adult. Which is a good price. The model village was very interesting. The detail was amazing. The replica of the village was so neat. I believe it is 1/9th the size. Not only were there the houses but a little river and flowers and... More
