I've been to Corfe a couple times- once with my husband as part of our minimoon and the other with my Granny for one of our Day Out adventures.
When I went with my husband, he said it wasn't worth going to the Castle- you could see it from the Village. The village is lined with quaint shops and little restaurants, enough to experience in an afternoon.
The second time I went (with Granny) it was much more cultural and a wonderful place to visit! We parked at the edge of the village in the designated National Trust car park and had the dogs with us so we wandered through the woods to arrive at the base of the castle ruins. Wow! From the base of the castle there were some lovely views, but to wander round the top of the hill that homed Corfe Castle the 360 degree view was so peaceful! There were artists tucked in corners and couples sitting enjoying the views.
Then at the base of the castle is a cafe with outdoor seating to admire the castle and a basic sandwich style lunch menu. Nothing fancy but a nice ploughman's hit the spot topped off with a nice coffee!
A great place to spend the day & bonus that dogs are welcome.
