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

We had a combo ticket for the steam train and model railway so were already committed to visiting the model village before we had even arrived in Corfe. However, we would have come in anyway since the cafe was the most tempting option for a mid-morning snack and the prices are very reasonable, so we probably would have been drawn... More

This is one of those quirky, British things, of someone in their potting shed building a model village in the garden and then opening it to the public. It's magnificent, the only real way to see what the castle looked like before the civil war, and set in a beautifully manicured garden Aside from the joy of the visit and... More

We were drawn to the Model Village Tearoom in Corfe by the board outside offering many Gluten-free choices. We were not disappointed. The Gluten-free triple layered prawn & lemon mayonnaise sandwich was absolutely fantastic. The Best Prawn Sandwich I have ever eaten!!! Usually eating g-f in a cafe is a miserable experience with very few choices and hard, dry, tasteless... More

We visited this cafe before I was gluten free and it was nice. Now I am gluten free it was fantastic to re visit it and see a blackboard with their gluten free options! It was great to be able to eat a toasted sandwich! And a nice caramel shortbread. The coffee was good too. We were all happy :)

Nice little place tucked away off the main street. We had free tickets from travelling on the Swanage railway but the entrance fee was small. The model village was well done but not very big, although the castle model was impressive. Liked the attention to detail with the little people etc in the model village. The nature part was also...

This reasonably-priced and child-friendly attraction was a pleasant extra following my visit to Corfe Castle. The model village was very cleverly constructed, and it was interesting to compare the model (which showed the castle as it would have been prior to its destruction) with the ruins. There were lots of other activities to do which were ideal for children and... More

The model village is great and really detailed. Very interesting to see the Castle as it was. Its set in beautiful gardens and there's lots of games to keep everyone entertained too :) And during the Summer Holidays this year they have a quiz with a small prize for everyone who takes part. And after playing in the gardens we... More
