About us

All about us…

We are a family run business based here on the Isle of Wight and very proud of it! Robin Thwaites purchased the run down Model Village in the late 1960’s.  His vision and attention to detail has set the standard for a great deal of what you see today.

As the current owners we are passionate about everything you see here. Our great team aim to give every customer a wonderful nostalgic experience.

Set in the grounds of the Old Vicarage, the Model Village in Godshill, is a timeless place to escape the busy world outside.

As Kevin McCloud of Channel 4’s Grand Designs said “If you really do want to indulge in a uniquely Fifties Isle of Wight experience replete with bathing huts, vintage buses and a slower pace of life, then there is only one destination for you - Godshill Model Village”.
