Babbacombe Model Village and Gardens
Babbacombe Model Village on the english riviera is famous for its miniature landscaped gardens, leading it to be branded as one of Europe's Premier Model Villages and one of Torquay's most beautiful gardens. The village is set in 4.5 acres of gardens which require on-going attention throughout the year by our team of professional gardeners. This ensures that they are kept in an immaculate condition and the scenes are kept to scale.
Whether a keen garden enthusiast or just a casual admirer the beautiful landscaping never fails to impress our visitors. Hundreds of varieties of plants, shrubs and trees and many new ones planted each year mean that the gardens are ever-changing and offer a visual delight throughout the seasons. Colourful in the summer with pretty bedding plants and even during the winter months the abundance of conifers makes this a lovely green and lush visitor experience. Dogs are welcome throughout the gardens, indoor displays and gift shop. It’s the perfect place for them to explore and if they’ve been good why not treat them to a doggy ice cream which can be purchased from our gift shop.
