Just returned from visiting the model village. I am amazed at how realistic it is, and how much there is! Definitely worth the money! Will be recommending!

My 2 sons aged 2 and 4 love model villages so we have been to quite a few. I thought Merrivale was really good. Great models and loads of them. It needs a little TLC here and there but nothing that diminishes the enjoyment. The crazy golf course is a nice bonus at the end too. My boys really enjoyed... More

I love this type of stuff, so much fun to visit! We had a quiz sheet, and dare I say got 100%. lots of the pieces move or make noise at the push of a button. we enjoyed feeding the Koi carp (take 20p coins). I think some of the people are due a re-paint, but all in all a... More

I can remember bringing my own children here over 30 years ago and recently brought my grandchildren. This is a really lovely seaside attraction and has hardly changed - but is immaculately maintained, with well kept gardens and floral planted areas, ponds and interactive exhibits. A really enjoyable place to go for either youngsters or the 'more mature'.

A traditional model village in a traditional seaside resort, the Merrivale model village is something everyone should visit if staying at the resort. The models themselves are amazing in their detail, and are also funny and amusing. Some of them are interactive, and this makes the fun even better. The gardens they are located in are stunning too, with the... More

I just loved this attraction. It was so realistic with everything a model village could contain. There was a fire station,wedding,police chase,and lots more too numerous to mention. The gardens surrounding each attraction were lovely and a perfect setting for the model village. As pensioners we paid £6 each and it was very good value for money and a good... More
