We spent an hour or so here one Sunday morning. For some reason entrance was reduced to £8 for the family,which was good as it is very small. We spent most time playing the giant family games in the garden: connect four and checkers, which was great fun. The tea shop was great, with really nice cakes, excellent decaf and... More

Had my mother with me who still thinks she is a spritely 90 year old. As walking up the battlements of Corfe castle was out of the question, we settled for second best and walked around the model village of Corfe, which has been very lovingley built.

My husband and I loved the cafe at the model village. The staff were soooo sweet and chirpy. They gave us 'end of the day scones' to take home too. Our favourite place for coffee and cake. See you again in May girls.

I love the model village, the grounds, the shop, the cafe. My son Charlie adores the fairy garden, we walk through it every time we come for something to eat, we have to whisper so as not to disturb the fairies. Sometimes Charlie has a little item from the shop, as a 'special treat' he calls it, very reasonably priced,... More

We visited the tea rooms here and had a delicious and enormous piece of the most delicious coffee and walnut cake and a lovely cup of tea. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and ensured we were happy and enjoying our experience

The café is a good idea being in the courtyard, but my mother and I could not hear ourselves think as we tried to drink tea because of a spoiled, confounded hollering child. The noise level was such that we took one look at each other and fled. I realize this is not the cafes fault but the experience was... More

it really is a village thing, worth a little wonder round if you are in the village. It gives you some history lessons as you walk around. The tea shop is lovely and very friendly

Corfe Castle Village is very cute. There are few gift shops in the village as well as quite a few pubs. Really enjoyed a short walk around the village and a meal in one of the pubs.

We have visited this attraction before; this time for just light refreshment sitting in the sunshine on the patio.
