We had half price entry as it's the beginning of the season. Great model village and lots of fun things for children - fairy garden, lawn games and other quirky things. Good coffee and range of cakes for afterwards. Friendly staff.

Lovely little model village in a very pretty village. Cost just £2 each (normally £4). Very well maintained with lawn games for children.

The model castle was certainly great to see by showing what the original Corfe Castle looked like - but that was it. The little model houses at its base and the attempt to make the rest of what is a back garden interesting in my view have failed. The ticket is over-priced so I'm not surprised they say you can...

Very nice place. Gardens were lovely and there's games for children to play outside (croquet/Jenga) which people were making good use of despite the weather!. Didn't go to the tea rooms next door but it looked very nice

This was a very cute model village and gardens which was quite small, our kids loved it. They also had a lovely cafe for my coeliac son and he could have almost everything on the menu.

Something for everyone. An excellent attraction. and very well thought out. Loved the fairy garden. Lots of thought has been put into this Village. We had been to see the castle and this gave us an insight of how life had been. Cost very reasonable and a lovely welcome by the lady at the till.

Our favourite was the fairy garden. Everything well made and very helpful and friendly staff. Also a very good gift shop and tea rooms Also a good model... More

I used to visit as a child and wanted to take my little ones to see the village to see if they'd love it as much as I did... and they really did! We went after visiting the 'big' castle and my 3 year old really enjoyed seeing the castle as it was, but mostly she loved the fairy and... More

I'd been coming to Corfe for many years but for some reason put off visiting the model village as I thought it was only for the very young. Well I'm not so young but I loved it. The model village is so cute, with tiny characters you need to keep a look out for. You can even hear music coming... More
