Used to come on family holidays to Polperro every year as a child and a visit to the Model Village and Land of Legend was always tradition, perhaps more than once per holiday! Was so nice to be able to take my own daughter there....More

A lovely little amusement, cheap to get in and a real trip back to the old days of simple enjoyment. No high tech computer wizardry just lovely little houses, singing in the church. Joy for little ones and memories of our childhood for us older...More

Not the biggest or most detailed of model villages but a good reproduction of the layout of Polperro. The "model village" within this model village was a nice touch. Not quite sure how the "Land of Legend" presentation fitted in, but was interesting nonetheless. The...More

Visited here with friends and had a fun time, especially the land of legend. The model village in the model village was cool too. Only £3 entry, so won't break the bank if you want to spend a bit of time there whilst in polperro.

Not very big, but nicely made, lots of detail including a replica Crumplehorn Inn, and a nice 7 cameo interactive display on Cornwall

Ok for a short visit. Was staying in Polperro close by the model village. Was glad we didn't travel specially to go.

Tiny attraction, not at all interactive. Could walk around in two minutes strolling. Weird show at the end (lasted about 5 minutes) was entertaining and the staff were nice.

The model is very small, you can look at it in three minutes and to say it's tires and worn with zero love and care is an understatement. Not dear to get in but complete waste of money.
