We went here on a very hot day, there is very little parking in this pretty village. We parked an easy 20 minute walk away in the National Trust carpark. The model village is very small, but well worth a look and has a café. Dogs are allowed too. Lovely, friendly staff and a small gift shop too.

An average tea with normal jam and buns and stuff. The menu is very funny, which weirdly made it a lot nicer...

This is a great place to visit and see Corfe in miniature! It's definitely better on a dry day as it's really an outdoor activity, and they have garden games like croquet and giant connect four as well as all the models to walk around. There is a nice little tea room at the end to enjoy too.

First signs were not that great. See med no more than a tiny garden until it opens up and round the back you see the small, model village created. A lovely, secret hidden spot that is perfectly suited for parents who visit Corfe Castle but may feel guilty that their youngest kids might have been underwhelmed by the whole thing.... More

What a lovely surprise to find this little gem! The children thought it was a great adventure and loved exploring the model village and the talking soldiers! Beautiful gardens too. Very refreshing to be offered a free weeks pass as well.

Now Corfe is lacking in pubs we stopped here for Lunch on a busy Sunday and will definitely revisit at some point soon as we were very impressed. It was very busy but we still managed to find a nice table in the courtyard covered with lovely large parasols, there is clear signs advising self service which is very helpful... More

Was delighted to discover that the Corfe Castle Model Village has a cafe you can access without having to visit the model village. Been there! Done that about 15 years ago with the kids. Even more delighted when I discovered they offer gluten free (GF) food as my daughter has Celiac Disease and I eat GF out of solidarity with... More
