We spent 3 hours visiting the lovely Model Village, something we've always meant to do but never quite got round to it. We're so glad we did though... For a very reasonable admission (£3.95 for adults and £2.75 for children over 4) we entered a wonderfully thought out and wonderful little garden. The model village is so well done, from... More

This was an amazing little place - the Courtyard looked fabulous - didn't have time to eat/drink there as it was late afternoon - I went around the 'village' and my elderly Mother looked around the gift shop looked after by the very lovely helpful young lady assists ant. The model village was a delight and the entrance fee reasonable... More

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

Two culprits there! We have just re opened for the half term, and have done quite a bit of improvements in the garden, though some... More
