This was a nice little attraction. Managed to walk round quite quickly so thought was a bit pricey at £15 for 1 adult and 1 child. This included car park ticket for the day. But it was nice to see and had a lovely ice cream at the end

This was a lovely hour or so walk round, possibly a little pricey for what it is but nevertheless nice to see!

Great place to visit. Made all the better by the quiz which helps you to navigate your way around the village. Nice little cafe and ice cream place. Great place to take a picnic and visit on the way to the zoo.

We are a family of 5 including 3 young boys of 5, 7 and 8 and we paid a visit to the model village over the Easter break and I'm really glad we did! The models are of a high standard and each tells a different story and the layout makes the experience very interesting as it winds around different... More

Spent a lovely couple of hours with the children doing the Easter bunny hunt (where they win a nice bag of chocolates) and general trail. The models are well looked after and the gardens well tended. The staff are very pleasant and the ice cream went down well. Not as big as the model village In Babbacombe but is far... More

Enjoyed a brief trip here but quite small (not meant to be a pun) - does not take long to walk round and felt could be more effort adding to models. Having been to the model village in Torquay this is pale in comparison as in Babbacombe model village they put tvs and figures in the houses. I liked the... More

Visited this attraction today with some free kids tickets we got from the zoo. Even so we still paid £26 for two adults, two students and two kids so not a cheap afternoon out. On a positive note the attraction was clean with lots of benches and picnic tables and two friendly cats. The gardens themselves are very well kept... More

Based on previous reviews, we were very pleasantly surprised by our time at the Model Village. This may have been helped by being such a beautiful autumn day, but the colours and landscaping in the gardens were lovely. The models and gardens were very well maintained and the staff chatty and friendly. With respect to the admission price, I urge... More

I had been a few years ago and enjoyed the return visit. I think you need the quiz so you look out for things more, so I would recommend doing that even if you don't have kids with you. I love the exhibits. I agree that it is a bit overpriced at twenty quid for three of us. Parking though... More
