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

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.

A charming little attraction- daughter loved feeling like a giant! Good to see what to expect of the Polperro layout on the way into the harbour!

Popped in here on our way back to the car park. Was very quaint and the wishing well is really sweet. Enjoyed it.
