About Us

Torquay’s Beautiful 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 gardens cover nearly four acres and require on-going attention throughout the year by a 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 and evergreens makes this a lovely green and lush visitor experience.

    We were somewhat reluctant to visit but the children were super keen, so off we went. The village is beautifully created and maintained. The attention to detail is amazing in all the little scenes... Read full review

    I didn't think I would like the model village, I personally thought I was too old for it. But I really enjoyed the time I spent there and would definitely go again. Read full review
