The village has a range of activities for young and old, with seasonal events, it is open all year. The tea room serves tasty food in large portions. There is an outside patio where dogs are accepted. The Village gift shop doubles as a food shop, selling basics such as eggs and milk. The gift shop also sells unusual gifts... More

This was such a delight and we thoroughly appreciated the effort to depict the originall town. We didn't 't eat in the cafe , as we had already had Cream Tea, but it looked very inviting. We decided not to pay the fee to visit the ruins as they are visible from the town. Very pretty and interesting town. Parking... More

when visiting Corfe Castle, take some time to visit the model village, this will not take long, but then you must have something to eat and drink in the tea room, the range of cakes and pastries on offer are superb, and they also do veg and meat if you are camping or staying locally, best of all, they are...

Dear Crisanddick, Many thanks for writing a review about us. We do sell meat, vegetables, milk, the basics, as the corner shop closed down in February, so there is no where else to buy such in the village. How long we will sell these products for we do not know, as they are refurbishing the shop as we speak. Once... More

We popped in for a drink before we went round the model village but noticed their very good offer of £4 for a hot drink and a scone as well as entrance into the village which was excellent value. This meant that we could sit on the patio area on the model village side of the café with beautiful views... More

Visited Corfe Castle village but decided not to pay £9 each to go up to the ruin, as you can see it from the street, and being National Trust you have to pay for their car park as well. We wandered round the beautiful village and happened upon the Model Village - not hard to find as the village is... More

We popped in for a bite to eat after a walk around Corfe Castle and were treated to acfantasticvtuna sandwich for the children to share, and a packed tuna baguette and fully loaded prawn mayo baguette for the grown-ups. Really tasty, and great to find somewhere to eat in a popular tourist destination that doesn't blatantly see everyone through the... More

Walked from the B&B to the Model Village and found that this is a good place to have a look around and buy gifts. Well worth a visit.
