Babbacombe Model Village

Since then the project has grown and now features an extensive range of buildings, working watermills, Georgian towns, tudor houses and classic Devon thatched villages and farms along with working railways, streams, waterfalls and an ornamental Lake stocked with specimen Koi carp.
