Some of the ruined stone was used in the building of the village and the houses are built of local stone, making the village one of the most attractive in Dorset.
Along with the Castle, other family attractions in the village include Corfe Castle Model Village and Gardens and Swanage Railway and museum. There are a number of interesting shops, art galleries and a National Trust Shop. Don’t miss the tiny weeny village museum beneath what is thought to be the smallest town hall in England!
Corfe Common is found just on the edge of the village with the Purbeck Way walking route passing through it to reach Chapman’s Pool and the South West Coast Path. Alternatively follow the Purbeck Way towards Wareham or Swanage (with views over the Castle and Village from up on the Purbeck Ridge).
