    The best model village we have ever visited, but slightly costly.
    Strangely accessed through a local car park, you find yourself in a world of high-end models, which is quite simply amazing. There is a great decked area to use for lunch/refreshments, which looks out over the whole of the model village, which is quite extensive and absolutely beautifully kept. Very good amenities (shop, cafe, toilets) which are clean and easily accessible. Some of the paths around the village are quite steep, so accessibility needs consideration. The only downside would be the entry cost, which I felt was expensive for the short amount of time we spent there, but can appreciate why they need to make the charges when you look at the superbly maintained gardens, landscape and models themselves. I never took note of the family ticket or cost, but I would think it would deter some from going.

    A smashing place to visit
    This was my first visit, and was I surprised so much to see and the models were so good and everything looked right. Had a lovely morning there and a nice drink in the cafe as well. Well worth a visit, young and older people as well. Easy to walk around as well

    Great place with lovely staff
    I really enjoyed our visit. I can’t say I was initially very enthusiastic but my partner really wanted to go so I thought I’d give it a try. Staff were lovely and the place is enormous. Lots of great things to see and clearly the people that built it have a sense of humour. Really enjoyed it and also had a game of crazy golf half way round.
    Hi Jane66666, We are thrilled to hear that you and your partner enjoyed the visit and hope to see you again when you're next visiting the area. Best wishes, BMV

    Worth every penny
    Absolutely amazing. It's massive. I was sceptical about the price but it is definitely worth it. I bet you'd see something you missed if you kept going back. We spent 2.5 hours there.
    Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to leave us a lovely review. We are really pleased to hear that you had a great visit and found the experience was worth every penny. We hope to see you again when you're next visiting Torquay. Best wishes, BMV

    Really fun place to visit for all ages.
    Really enjoyable place to visit for all ages. We have visited here for years and never tire of it Really well done and always new touches every year. The gardens are also immaculate and beautifully kept, so are enjoyable in their own right. Many of the models have humorous aspects and someone really thinks what will catch the attention and keep the village topical year after year. There is so much to look at and to spot among all the displays. Appeals to all ages.

    Amazing place.
    Amazing experience, every tiny building or vehicle and person has been created with such care and fine detail, had a brilliant time, there are whitty signs on vehicles and amusing figures. There is also a mini crazy golf course for free and they are adding on new and exciting models regularly. I would love to visit again and wholeheartedly recommend this place.

    Babbacombe Model Village is a Gem
    A fabulous couple of hours spent here. So much to look at and funny building and vehicle names to spot. There is even a fire breathing dragon! The added game of crazy golf was an unexpected plus. The cafe was clean and had a good choice. All the staff I met were friendly and helpful. It is on a steep hill with some steps to the cafe and facilities, so unfortunately not wheelchair friendly. You don't notice the hill when going around as there is something to stop and look at almost every step. Would definitely recommend a visit.
    Thank you for reviewing us and it's always lovely to hear such fantastic feedback from our visitors. We hope to see you again when you're next visiting beautiful Babbacombe. Best wishes, BMV

    Great 3 hours not long enough
    Have been to a few model villages and this one is one of the best. A little tricky being on a slop and me being on crutches, but well worth the visit. Carpark outside and reasonable. Lots to see for the kids, big and small and those who like fire breathing Dragons. Lots to see and van and lorry signs to keep you amused. Will have to go again to see all the bits we missed first time around. The crazy golf at the bottom of the village was great and I will have to go again the wife beat me! There are also other attractions near by.
    Thank you for this wonderful review and really pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit. We hope to see you again when you're next visiting the area. Best wishes, BMV

    Great for all ages
    Third time we’ve visited in the last 20 years. It’s a must if you’re in the area. Fabulous to walk round and see all the funny names for companies etc, a lot of tongue in cheek 😂. Some new activities added since our last visit. The mini golf is fun. And there’s some new models. A great place for all ages time and again.
    Thank you for revisiting us and really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit. Best wishes, BMV

    Not just for children
    We caught the bus from Torquay harbour to this venue and it was only a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. It is not cheap to go in but you can stay as long as you like and the money goes on the upkeep of this place. It is huge. I have been to other model villages but this one is by far the best. It is very well landscaped and several animated models including firemen tackling a thatched roof which is literally on fire and you can see the flames. Brilliantly done. The attention to detail of the buildings and the model figures are superb. You can also enjoy a game of crazy golf if you wish. Very good amenities with a decked area near the café and toilets that give you a wonderful ariel view of the village. Adults and children will find this a wonderful experience and we would go again.
