Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: If you would like to know how the castle would have looked before destruction by Cromwell in 1646, a visit to the model village shows Corfe Castle and the village in 1/20th scale. Set in beautiful Purbeck surroundings, also with giant games, enchanted fairy garden, working stocks and pillories and croquet. There is on site the Courtyard Tea Room for good quality reasonably priced snacks with a wide range of gluten free options.

We visited here on a wet day and were not disappointed. The lady in the shop could not have been more helpful or accommodating - she offered us umbrellas and allowed us to leave the pushchair in the shop as it was quiet, whilst we explored the grounds. Our 3 year old had a fantastic time exploring the beautiful model village and playing the garden games, and in particular fell in love with the magical fairy garden - we had to visit it 3 times before we left! The food was reasonably priced and tasty. A wonderful find and we would definitely visit again and recommend to friends and family. Thank you for an enjoyable morning out!

I visited the Corfe model village Summer 2017 with my family and was pleasantly surprised. There was plenty to keep the kids occupied for a couple of hours, the staff were helpful and friendly, the gardens very lovely. You have nature, history and nostalgia with the bonus of great food at very reasonable prices. Also a lovely little gift shop and an excellent deal to be had when combined with the Swanage railway. Highly recommended!

Such a lovely idea and so much to see in these gardens. The model village and castle are quite impressive and give a great idea of what the castle would have been like.
There are a few giant garden games to play along the way, which was great fun! also a little fairy walk for kids. What a lovely little place!!

Fun to visit, and provides what Corte Castle should: a model of the castle as it was before its destruction.
