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 visited here on a rainy day and had a blast, so I think if you were here on a sunny day it would be even better. Before you even get to the model village there are lovely kept gardens with games (croquet, connect 4 etc.) to keep all the family amused. The model village is very well made and... More

I love model villages so couldn't wait to visit. The setting is beautiful and the model village itself is interesting, but there's not much to it. The best part was seeing what the castle would've looked like originally. I wouldn't visit again but as there's not much else to see in Corfe Castle you may as well visit.

We took the train from Swange to Corfe and found the Model Village and Cafe for lunch, we sat outside as the weather was so nice and both had the chicken and bacon ceasar salad which was very good, would recommend a visit.

Lovely, little village..take time and enjoy it. We played the games supplied...beat my husband at croquet! It is value for money and has historical facts and details about the village, both real and model!

We visited here primarily for the tearooms, which looked inviting, and we are glad we did. There is a great choice of food, including gluten free, all very reasonably priced. The staff are excellent! We went there for lunch and afternoon tea, and both times there were some elderly ladies there, who apparently visit every day. The attention given to... More
