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...

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.

This is a very interesting place to see , a small scale model of Corfe Castle complete with castle and other historical items. Set back in large gardens with plenty of space. 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

The model village is quite small but combined with the garden games and a cup of tea from the on site cafe made it very pleasant. The only downside was the very small toilet which made changing the baby quite tricky!

Great model village, which is also a great place to eat. We came here about ten years ago, and remembered it fondly. The place not only lived up to our memories, but exceeded them. There's a new attraction, the fairy garden, just off to one side, which charmed us and our seven year old daughter. This is a lovely place... More

Dear RunningSteve, Thank you very much for your lovely review, it is good to read that we exceeded your expectations. A lot of work goes in to maintaining the Model Village, especially the grass cutting which has to be exact. The ticket is valid for seven days, though the last day of this season will be Sunday 30th October, so... More
