Babbacombe Model Village is England in miniature. Over 400 models make up the village on over 1.6 hectares (4 acres) of rolling English pastures; it is entirely fictional, but famous English landmarks, such as Stonehenge, inspire many of the sites there. Puns are the wit of choice here, and you'll see no shortage of them in the business names, such as Terry Bull Gardening Service. Tom Dobbins created this miniature marvel, which includes an iconic English castle, windmills, and people.

Excellent attraction to see. The facilities were immaculate. A very well run establishment . We went on a quiet day, I expect it gets very busy at peak times

What a place! We visited in the summer of 2032 and spent a most enjoyable few hours touring the village. So much to see and masses of detail in every scene. We loved it, and had great fun spotting all the details. The crazy golf was free and was great fun too. Highly recommended if you want to be surprised and amazed at the skill of the model makers.
Truly is detail ! It is worth a visit never mind the kids it’s for everyone! Who enjoys more me or my son ! My wife loved it ! Well sign posted to spend time looking at the models to take pictures! Something for everyone & comical to laugh at ! Toilets fantastic! Cafe area fantastic well priced ! A beautiful sit down area out side to enjoy your food ! This model village is like a massive garden hidden gem ! They say at night it looks beautiful! Try it for your self & be a kid again !
I was very impressed with this model village, the detailing in the people was very good. Everything is well thought through. There’s arrows on the floor so you don’t miss anything. Very clean toilets. 4 acre plot with models all over. There’s crazy golf on site with a cafe and a gift shop. Overall a 5 star experience with reasonable pricing.
I loved this place. I love model villages and this didn't disappoint. Even has a mini golf included. It's excellent that admissions till 8pm. Me and my partner enjoyed a good couple of hours here. I would definitely come again and next time I'll bring my grandson.
Really enjoyed our afternoon at the model village. Love the attention to detail in each display, along with all the little bits of a good sense of humour added. Look very closely at each display whilst your there to find them 🤣 The grounds and displays are kept immaculate. The model village is a great way to spend a couple of hours escaping the real world, well worth a visit for people of all ages.
