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.

The idea of a model village sounds great but to keep it up to date and to maintain the models is incredibly difficult. I am glad to say Babbacombe has managed it. From the in jokes for the adults to figures for children to find this village is brilliant and the closer you look the more you find. The only downside is the paths can be steep so care is needed especially with buggies who don't always have great brakes.
Fantastic place to visit, the children loved spotting the name on the businesses around the village. The gardens are beautifully maintained and everything is modelled perfectly, Spent a wonderful couple of hours here and would highly recommend it. The only word of warning is it is very hilly, but we managed a pushchair without oxygen being needed. Also dog friendly which made it even better.
