Whilst the model village is a little tired it is quaint, amusing and has the most stunning gardens. The gardens are beautiful and lovingly cared for. Well worth a visit!

It's a little bit tired compared to some model villages we've visited, and so we only really spent maybe 90 minutes maximum here. Due to this I'd consider it a little bit expensive for what it offers.

We visited on Aug Bank Holiday Monday in the evening. Used to come as a child when on holiday but have now brought my own children to see it. A lovely place even better at night with the lights. Reasonably priced and friendly staff.

We visited this model village on the sea front today. The place is completely doggy friendly (must be kept on leads, understandably) We paid just under £8 each (adults) to get in and that gives us access all day! The lady at reception was brilliant,...More
