I am a sicker for a model village! At jus £3 entry why wouldn't folks want to visit, especially if they have kids. You walk through with rooftops at knee height so you feel like a giant. If you have walked around Polperro first you...More

Lovely little model village with a fun show at the end. Minimal entry fee paid for about 30 minutes entertainment - you can't go wrong really. Slots nicely into a day out in Polperro.

Nice little model village, also a small walk-around 'show' with figurines and scenes with a voice talking about some aspects of Cornish myth

I liked this place. It's only small but really well thought out. It's a model village of polperro. The attention to detail is incredible and there is a house with shells all over it on the walk from killigarth and this little place has a...More
