The first turn-up-and-go theme park in the UK to cater for disabled visitors has opened a new attraction.

Fairytale Farm near Chipping Norton opened last year and unveiled its new Mouse Town attraction on Saturday.

This beautifully crafted model village is located inside a former stable building and features a quaint English rural town complete with shops, church, houses, village pond and jail. But what makes it different from other model villages is that it is home to a family of real mice who can be seen going about their daily routines.

Mouse Town is the fourth new attraction to open at the park since Easter alongside the Hansel and Gretel and Sleeping Beauty attractions and the popular rubber duck races.

Park owner Nick Laister said providing visitors with new things to see is proving to be the secret of the park’s success. He said: “We piloted Mouse Town the other day and the children really loved it and didn’t want to leave.

“We’re getting people coming back again and again and we’ve sold a lot of annual passes, which is great."

Mr Laister and his wife Nicola dreamed up the park after being inspired to create an attraction where disabled and able bodied children can enjoy a day out with their families by their daughter Olivia, who has cerebral palsy.
