Corfe Castle is certainly one of Dorset's prettiest villages, the castle ruins sitting dramatically on a hill overlooking the village, much of which is made out of the stones from its ruins. The pretty Victorian station is part of the Swanage Heritage Railway and the steam trains run from Swanage through Corfe to Norden, a magical journey for all ages. The village has a variety of public houses, restaurants, tea shops and eclectic village shops, including a wonderful bakery and village stores. There is a friendly local primary school which feeds into either The Swanage School or The Purbeck School. Corfe Castle sits between the riverside town of Wareham and the stunning beaches at Swanage and Studland, this is the land of Enid Blyton stories.
