We bought a Groupon voucher which enabled us to visit the garden and model village plus have cream teas for 2 adults and 3 children. We had the most amazingly tasting scones and jam plus coffee and our children had fruit juices and scones I could eat the scones all day long! The garden was so tranquil and beautiful I... More

We came to corfe castle in the pouring rain and decided to take a visit to the model village! On Arrival the staff were really friendly and gave us a ticket which was valid all week so we could visit even when the weather was better! However even in the rain the garden was interesting and fun for everyone with... More

Visited on a rainy day, staff very friendly. Enjoyed a gluten free cream scone: would definitely return. My husband preferred the gluten free scones as they were so delicious.

I have previously visited Corfe and passed this attraction by but this time my guests wanted to look in. The model village is very cute with funny little details - the garden was spectacular, a good range of different trees and flowers and a fantastic bug hotel at the back of the garden. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore.... More

Used a groupon deal for this, was great. I'd recommend you do pay to get it, is much better than it looks from the road. Nice cafe, our included scones were delicious but the toweringly tall home made cakes looked amazing! Loads of people in cafe not actually visiting gardens. Kids enjoyed all the toys laid out in the lawns... More

We strolled past here after catching the train to Corfe castle, the sun was glorious so we popped in. Entrance was £3.90 per adult & about £2.50 for children & your ticket enables you to visit again within 7 days. It's a lovely quiet spot & had we'd been there longer the gardens are a lovely stop for a picnic.... More

Marvellous fun to brighten a dull and drizzly day. Besides the very impressive model village, there is such a lot to do - giant connect four, giant draughts, croquet, lawn dominoes, hopscotch, hoopla and a fairy glade. There is also a tearoom (untried) and shop, all of which are just off the main square.

This is really nice thing to see and you owe it a visit if you're at Corfe Castle already. If you crouch right down you can shoot up the village streets (that sounded dodgy but you know what I mean) and it's just like the real street just outside of it. Also don't just walk by quickly, take a look... More

The model village is worth a visit to see the miniture version of Corfe Castle. There is a natural habitat for all creatures great and small. There is also a fairy garden but be quite or the goblin will wake up! *Here's a tip visit the steam train first and get discounted entry to the model village.*

Fantastic! The well tended garden complete with outdoor games leads to Corfe village in miniature. Delightful. Take time to look carefully at everything. The castle itself shows how it would have looked at the time of the English Civil War. Even the trees are miniature versions of those in the village. The insect B and B is amusing and the... More
