"One of the finest Model Villages in the World" - David Young ITV.

Experience an unforgettable realm famed for beauty, tranquillity and Humorous originality. Every twist and turn of the tree lined paths reveals a fresh perspective to delight the eye. Tom Dobbins has created a 'living canvas' which holds a mirror to everyday life & experience.
Witness the English way of life & culture in a unique form. The village began as a representation of the quintessential English countryside at its most beautiful.
Over 40 years, the project has grown and now features an extensive range of buildings emphasising Vernacular architectural styles - working watermills, Georgian towns, Tudor houses & classic Devon thatched villages and farms along with working railways, streams, waterfalls and an ornamental Lake stocked with specimen Koi carp. Every year new additions can be seen.

"I came as a child and have now brought my own children - excellent as ever 10 out of 10 - Lovely at night"

"Wonderfully laid out, my third visit in 5 years its simply amazing"
