Default Advice and information required

Hi folks, I bought a wooden conservatory and some bits today and was wondering if anyone knew whether it is a 'brand' or if it is more likely it is handmade. It is quite large and the base is about 3 feet square. Seems fairly old (70s maybe) and is a bit tatty.
I think the dolls are bisque or porcelaine and there is a doll toi deckchair and another item (no idea what it is) some plastic bits and bobs ie pram and crib, couple of beds and a home sweet home jug and bowl. Any info would be much appreciated especially regarding the dolls. Im looking for info on age, brand, value etc ..... thanks in anticipation

It does remind me of this Street's Ahead one, but your's is longer (and I'm not sure when Streets Ahead started making stuff)

Thanks for your replies folks. It was a good buy, I found it at the back of an old junk shop warehouse with all the bits inside, it is filthy and had obviously been there for a long time. I will sell the dolls as they are really not my cup of tea, but have no clue as to their worth. I will probably keep the rest as I will find a use for them I am sure lol

The dolls seem to have quite large heads for "dolls house dolls" and the pram is from the silvanian range. No idea about the conservatory but its a very nice one.
