A Visit to Godshill Model Village

At the moment we’re away on a little trip to the wonderful Isle of Wight. It’s literally the very best place to go with kids. There is absolutely loads to do here. I’m a little concerned by the total lack of internet here though! Despite paying for wifi where we’re staying I can’t actually get anything to load! Because I usually edit my pictures using Pic Monkey which I can’t access right now I’m going back to basics and posting un-edited, un-cropped pictures straight from the camera on today’s post.

After arriving on the island earlier today we headed straight to the beautiful little village of Godshill. Located in the middle of the island, this really is the perfect rural English village with beautiful thatched cottages and lovely tea rooms set within gorgeous country gardens. What brought us to the village was Godshill Model Village, which had been recommended to us lots of times, so we just had to go.

The model village is absolutely fantastic, all the tiny buildings are so realistic and the kids absolutely loved wandering around looking at all the gorgeous miniature people and their little homes. The girls both bought their dolls and Jess insisted that her Monster High Doll featured in my photos, we had so much fun getting her to pose, so incase you’re wondering the bright pink girl is it’s Jess’s doll Gigi!

A family ticket for the four of us cost £15, and that included re-entry if we wanted to visit agin during our stay. Our visit lasted about an hour and half and considering how much fun we had, I thought it was pretty good value for money. You could probably get a longer visit out of it if you stopped for a bite to eat or if your children didn’t run around attractions quite as fast as mine do!

I’d definitely recommend a trip to the model village if you come to the Island, it’s also worth visiting the lovely little shops in the village, including the sweet shop and cider shop which we popped into. We would have spent longer in the area but we wanted to fit another outing into our day, so we headed back to the car to head over to a castle which I will be talking about in my next post.
