A lovely National Trust property with a friendly staff and signage that really did educate about the castle and its history. Child friendly, with a really interesting cavalier encampment when we visited. Thoroughly recommended.

Well worth the admission fee if you don't belong to the National Trust. It's a large site with plenty of information, and terrific views over Corfe and surrounding countryside.

My husband who's American, desperately wanted to see a ruined castle. He was not disappointed. Corfe is beautiful with some interesting historical reincatments about life in the past. It was a bit of a hike with the push chair, but not impossible.

What a great place for the reenactment society of the English civil war. The castle feels so authentic and is basically in pieces but what amazing pieces.

Nice walk, learned a few bits, enjoyed a show and did some activities such as shooting, watching a lady spinning wool and a few others. Not bad for a tenner each
