We went there this weekend with the girls. They were fascinated.
There were lots of miniature things to look at…….
|Streams and lovely country houses|
|Villages with giants in them!! And a windmill.|
|A castle with a piper overlooking a harbour full of disproportionately sized tadpoles|
|There were miniature people to terrorise……|
|….and miniature houses on teeny-tiny streets to tower over.|
|The pint-sized shops included a Post Office. At least the little people can post their letters without having to trek ten miles.|
|And I spied with my little eye a certain TV doctor|
|The train came round to entertain the little (big) people. Slowly and steadily.|
- The toilets are, well, basic, but clean. There is a baby changing pull-down thing.
- The tea-rooms has indoor and outdoor seating areas, and sells drinks, lollies and various other bits.
- The village is on one level but the path narrows in parts and you would struggle with a wide wheelchair or double buggy. Single ones should be fine.
- There is a trail to complete where you get clues and find the items. There is a lollipop for each child at the end.
Bondville was fascinating for all of our party. The toddlers loved looking in all the little windows, and the five-year old and the nine-year old enthralled by the scale (or lack of it). The adults had a lot of fun with the hidden humour.
It was a great value hour or two and can be combined with a visit to nearby Sewerby Hall and Gardens, or catch the land-train down in to Bridlington.
I leave you with a little (literally) musical interlude.
