Spent a lovely afternoon walking around the model village. Very nicely set out and the children loved the working models. The cafe is small but very nice. Good value for money too.

Was expecting big things no pun intended visited at the end of October & unfortunately was left feeling a tad let down. The place looked like it was the end of the season dirty and some models not working.

It's best to view just as its getting dusk to appreciate the work that's gone into illuminating the model village. Still one of the best attractions which offers good value for money.

Spent a day with the family at Merrivale Model Village. Jamie was impressed with the size of the models and thought he could play with, look Dad my very own town, don;t need my cars at home now.

Just magical. Everything is beautiful and tiny and small and lovely to watch. Our children loved every single minute there so do we I. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall an excellent afternoon with a big BONUS as from 4pm they turn the lights on and it is magical.

£7 for adults, £6 for children over 3, it's dated, needs a lock of paint, the mini golf which is included is nothing exciting, but a bonus. Really is not worth the money, £5 per family would be a better price There was a competition running, to win a year pass to visit, erm once is enough !
