Looks like there could be some Cotswold stone there.

So, is that the one where the model village of the village has a model of the villages model village?

It´s weirder than that. The small scale village is in the backyard of the Pub. Why the Pub? Because the Pub was in the middle of nowhere and the landlord decided to build a village around his establishment so he would have some customers.

Plans were made, an architect hired. To avoid the Building noise, the landlord went on a Long Holiday. Unfortunately the plans sent to the architect were in 1:9 scale. Imagine the landlords shock when he returned from his Holiday.

Obviously it didn´t bring the wanted trade but it looked such a nice (although small) village, rich visitors decided to build thier homes around the Pub using the small scale village as a---well, a model.
So it all turned out well in the end.
