    Very cleverly done. Gardens are beautifully maintained and very peaceful. However in my opinion over priced.  more »

    I had a lovely time at the Model Village and gardens on Sunday. I was just going to use the cafe but then saw then very reasonable admission price of £3.95 to look around the village and gardens. The model village is very charming and the gardens are beautiful. A trip to Corfe would be incomplete without visiting. I also treated myself to a cream tea and received excellent customer service there. They asked me if I wanted to sit in the garden, I said it was a bit too hot so they took me to a lovely table in the shade which was just lovely. 5 star service!

    The best place in the area to get a cream tea - we've visited here so many times and it never fails to impress! They offer a gluten-free selection of cakes and scones, as well as soya milk. The selection of home-baked cakes is impressive. Service is always with a smile. Such a little gem!

    Interesting and well maintained with lovely gardens and places to sit and relax. A good cafe and some games to play including quoits and croquet. Friendly staff too

    We had a big family reunion here last weekend. There were nearly 40 of us altogether. The staff went out of their way to make us feel very welcome, catered for all our allergies and needs. Everything was absoloutely 5 stars, the service, the afternoon tea , the setting. Can't thank you all enough for making it a very special afternoon.
