Judy with the model in front of the original. The lovely pictures that have been plastered into the outside  walls is called "pargetting" This is the largest amount that I have seen on one building but this village has quite a bit of it on several of their buildings and homes. The house was a museum but is now owned by the Landmark Trust and can be rented
