We had a lovely time here, the garden are lovely and there are games to play too. Well worth a visit. We didn't visit the cafe.

We didnt spend long here despite taking part in the croquet and other games which other people might not want to do. I would only really recommend visiting here if the weather was nice. Make a wide berth if it is raining! the model village itself is tiny. It is much more about relaxing in the garden. I would imagine... More

Beautifully made model village complete with castle. Added bonus of a very good cafe and the gardens themselves full of colourful borders and huge poppies.

A beautiful garden with something for everyone. I loved the model village; particularly the castle and water mill. A sweet, fairy garden was quite enchanting with its quirky paraphernalia and tiny house. The games were fun for smaller children. We enjoyed a lovely cream tea in the cafe outside.

The model village itself is pretty small - but perfectly formed with the details. We loved the oversized garden games, and I enjoyed a mooch around the veggie patch. the little fairy trail and hazel shelters were cute too. We ate at the cafe first, which was full to bursting - took an age to order, but the service was... More

The garden is almost more interesting than the model for the older ones amongst us. However the model has a few surprises - look out for Dr Who. The grounds have a number of outdoor games for the younger ones at heart or age.

The model village and castle are fascinating. The gardens are beautifully looked after with so many things to look at in them. We even played croquet on the lawn. The food was fantastic, really good value too. The staff were really nice and gave the impression they really liked working there. What a marvellous place.

Well worth a visit when in Corfe Castle. The Model village was well laid out in a beautiful garden. The sun was shinning and we passed a very rewarding hour walking/sitting, taking in the scenary, the village and the sun.
