Its tiny, but then so is the real thing...

OK, so you can speed around the place in under 15 minutes, but its a model village of a small village so what would you expect. Much better to spend an hour wandering around... read more

OK, so you can speed around the place in under 15 minutes, but its a model village of a small village so what would you expect. Much better to spend an hour wandering around slowly and relaxing in the gardens. The model of Corfe Castle gives you an idea of how it looked before being destroyed by Parliament. Tickets last...

We decided to take our puppy to visit the model villiage. You have to go you wont be disappointed. Theres a lovely café attached for when you finish your walk around the model villiage.

Great little place to while away a couple of hours and then have a nice cream tea as well. Kids thought it was great and it is only £12 for a family of 5

We were a bit disappointed by our visit to the Corfe Castle model village. We had booked a joint ticket at Swanage Railway but when we arrived we thought it was overpriced for what was actually there. Although the gardens were beautiful, the model village itself was quite small.

Our son (aged 8) loves Model Villages, unfortunately our trip around this one took a maximum of 10 mins! In all honesty it isn't worth the fee

Great food, fantastic service.What more could you ask for. The fish is always nice here as is the chicken cooked in whiskey weather was not brilliant but less tourists.

Hi Ianmacuk1959, Your review is for a different establishment, not 100% sure which one, but we do not open in the evening, so either The Greyhound, The Castle Inn or Four and Twenty Blackbirds? Kind regards Emily More

It was pouring with rain and was pleased to be told that it was half price. This is a lovely little model village of Corfe. There are games and mini golf to play and very nice gardens to walk around.

Visited the Model Village on a day trip to Corfe Castle with my husband and two teenage daughters in tow. What a delightful little attraction it is! I enjoyed this as much as visiting the actual castle at Corfe, and the rest of my family felt the same. The model village itself isn't huge, but the buildings are detailed and... More

Entrance to the model village was £12 for the 5 of us (2 adults + 3 children). We didn't expect a great deal but it is really sweet. The top two gardens are very well laid out and tended and there was a 'roundheads vs royalists' little fun thing for the two youngest girls to do with a few easy... More
