Pocket Guide: Torquay Babbacombe Model Village and Gardens Hotels

One of the great things about coming to Devon for a short or long break is that there are so many things to see and do here. The varied landscapes and ragged coastline provide opportunities for a range of outdoor activities, and attractions like the model village and gardens in Babbacombe are great fun for all the family. It makes a brilliant destination for a day out from your Devon hotel or B&B, whatever the weather.

Babbacombe Model Village from Your Torquay Hotel

When you wander around this amazing model village you'll feel like Gulliver amongst the Lilliputians, a giant bestriding your miniature world like a colossus! The award-winning gardens cover four acres and are the showcase for incredibly detailed models of people, buildings, vehicles and natural landscape features. Devon seems to specialise in this sort of thing and they do it extremely well. Babbacombe Model Village is a complete miniature world that uses sound and animation to bring it to life, along with a large dose of British humour. Kids of all ages adore it, and adults are captivated too. Wherever your hotel or guesthouse in Devon may be, make sure that you visit this place at least once during your trip.

Top Tips for Your Visit to Babbacombe Model Village

The architectural styles modelled here cover a range of historic periods, from Medieval and Tudor through to Georgian and Victorian. The delightful thatched cottages seem to personify what Devon is all about, and even Stonehenge is featured. One of the residents is called 'Arry and is cunningly automated, and one of the favourites with kids is a dragon breathing fire onto a medieval castle. The village is surrounded by four acres of award-winning gardens featuring lakes, waterfalls and streams, and the village with its gardens is recognised as one of the best of its kind in the world. When you've finished admiring it you can have refreshments in Gulliver's Tearoom and Shop, or drop in to the 3D Special Effects Cinema to watch some awesome film footage set in the model village. Take time out from your Devon hotel to visit this amazing place.
