Bringing Life Back to Bondville

The beloved landmark in Sewerby, Bridlington, is thrilled to announce a new chapter in its storied history with the introduction of new owners, husband and wife, Rachel and Mark Hill.


With a passion for preserving tradition whilst embracing the new, the family are committed to elevating the visitor experience and ensuring that Bondville Model Village remains a cherished destination, full of life, once again. 

Rachel said: "We are delighted to take the reins of Bondville and build upon its rich legacy. Our vision is to make this an inclusive space for everyone to enjoy and alongside my family I can’t wait to show the hard work we’ve been putting in to make our dreams a reality.”

The owners bring a wealth of experience, along with a deep appreciation for the appeal that Bondville has for families that are similar to their own.


Rachel Hill has always dedicated herself to education, childcare and Special Educational Needs (SEN) for both children and their families, and when their eldest son, Tommy, was born in 2010, she didn’t know at the time that her parenting journey may not be as straightforward as she had hoped, and that those same qualifications would hold such value to her own family.


Rachel explained; “The beauty of Bondville is that it really is accessible to everyone, and one of my biggest drives in the development process has been to ensure the village represents the modern world and those living in it. Seeing my own family embracing the magic of Bondville and immersing their own ideas in to how it should look has been a really special process for us all.”


The family’s dedication to quality, creativity, and community promises to breathe new life into the attraction while ensuring accessibility for all to enjoy.

Bondville Model Village is set to open in Spring and the family will be sharing their journey on social media over the coming weeks, follow them on social media @bondvillemodelvillage_
