Not for us. We went as a part of the resort ticket. Its really not worth it. Almost felt like a joke. The paths actually very uneven unsafe. I am sure a lot of work has gone into building and presenting the models. I just don't know why.

Me and my husband visited the model village recently. The downside is the price. The walk around will only take between 30 minutes. . Max 1 hour. I took some lovely photos and a lot of time and effort has gone into the houses etc but the price may put people off when going as a family considering it will... More

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

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
