Quite small but so is Bourton on the Water! Its worth the entry fee and its fun to pick out the buildings that you've seen. Might be a bit tame for the older child.

A nice attraction that is being renovated. Just wonder why you have to pay extra for the miniature exhibition and not just add £1 on the entry price?

Lovely little place. Good price and well kept up. Certainly worth a visit! Very quaint and perfect for a day at Bourton. We had a good time looking for the shops we'd been in (especially the Victorian Christmas shop)
