There is a fair bit here, a diverse range of well maintained buildings which cater for a broad age group. There are often themed events so it is a good idea to plan your visit and find out what is going on. Children seem to have fun and the tea room offers a good selection of cakes.

Absolutely outstanding! I was especially pleased to hear the stories of the museum coming alive at night from the young gentleman in the tea room, Luke. He was extremely pleasant and seemed to have a special bond with the Teddy Roosevelt waxwork model. Overall, a brilliant experience (even if the Huns were causing mischief).

Lovely few hours walking around the historic buildings. Very knowledgable volunteers at the telephone kiosk display and windmill. Stopped twice at the tea rooms, cream teas to start off and ended on bacony sausage rolls. Can highly recommend both.
