To be honest we weren't expecting much, having been to other model villages at Bourton and Bekonscot, but it quickly became apparent to us that this is without doubt the best model village we've ever seen.
The quality of the gardens and landscaping will take your breath away. The detail of the models is sublime. I wish I could have spent more time here, so make sure you do and look for the little jokes around the village. The staff were lovely, especially the lady in the little tea hut (tea is served in proper mugs too!). Bonus points for clean toilets and the ability to get around with a buggy or wheelchair..
Godshill itself is pretty, but a dangerous nightmare to navigate if you have small children and a buggy. There's not much of a pavement and you come perilously close to cars and lorries that fly past you. We parked for free at the top of the high street by the Old Smithy.
I think overall it was one of the best things we ever did on the island. We can't rate it more highly!
