Thanks for visiting @bigandlittleadventures, we’re glad you enjoyed your time at the Village.

“We decided to check out @historicvillageherberton instead & we’re so glad we did! We all enjoyed our ‘step back in time’ for a few hours. It was like visiting a real village from a bygone era, just with grassy streets! A must do, even our teens were enthralled!”
