Great morning out!
Jun. 2021 • Family
I’ve visited numerous times however it was my husband and small kids first time. We thoroughly enjoyed it, the kids (4 & 2) lovedddd the miniature steam train ride. They loved pressing all the buttons to make things move. When visiting I definitely recommend stopping at the Rose cafe for scones.

Our family had an absolute ball! Super clean amenities and dining/picnic areas. Ladies and staff were very polite and helpful. The gardens are extraordinary and the steam train rides the cherry on top. You MUST visit.

Have visited this place several times over the years. Always enjoy visiting and looking at the stunning displays, which are very well kept. The train ride was great, even for adults.

We had an enjoyable visit wandering around in the miniature village. Th International section represents many different countries and is well laid out. But do not buy food it is expensive and awful.

Truly not worth the money!
Apr. 2021
SO SO bad. There is not one "iconic" building that kids would recognise / relate to.
Not at all educational, just mildly nice to look at.
Compared to other mini villages the details are not good.
Very boring. Sorry!
Staff lovely.

Nice grounds but too pricey for what it is. Dated.

We were there over Easter and luckily, we went there early as the crowd built up quickly.
There are many miniature buildings, including a section for international houses that represents buildings from a number of countries. A few displays have buttons where you can get a train to run or windmills to move but fairly basic stuff, which probably suits very young kids.
There was also a small steam train that goes around the property and while we skipped that, it looks popular. It cost a few dollars to take that train.
Overall, it was a nice place to spend an hour or so. Given that it was Easter, there was a bunny hunt for kids with rewards of some candies & chocolates at the end of it. This proved a hit with our young one.

Great childhood memories!
Mar. 2021
This was a birthday treat for me as it brought back memories of miniature villages that I used to visit as a child in England.
Cockington Green did not disappoint! It was everything and more that a miniature village should be.
The first appearance is stunning with the main entry house & beautiful garden.
All the staff were helpful & welcoming & you immediately felt a great family atmosphere.
We started off with the train ride & then wandered around the clear route around the village & then the International area.
Then a cuppa & scones in the Rose tearooms (food a bit expensive but souvenirs were reasonable).
We thoroughly enjoyed this visit & could see that the owners are passionate about its upkeep & loved pointing out to each other the little whimsical touches which are so typical of miniature villages.
Thank you one and all for this little gem.

Delightful, even in the rain
Mar. 2021 • Family
What a magical day out. It was pouring but that didn’t dampen our day. Staff were very friendly and provided umbrellas for us to borrow which was a nice touch

My daughter had a lovely time spotting all the tiny details hidden in each model. The international section was interesting for my husband and I to see familiar places

A fun day out for the whole family!

Train was not running due to extreme weather but we were told this before purchasing tickets and gives us an excuse to come back

It was also located in a really cool area with lots of little boutique shops and a tea store just up the road

Thanks hannahannah222 for your review. Thrilled the whole family had a good day out and that you took the time to notice all the little details in each display. Unfortunately, the train cannot run on such horrible weather days, good on you guys for braving the elements. There is a lot to do in the Gold Creek, a day can easily be spent in this area. Look forward to seeing you back for the train ride. Many Thanks
