Had a lovely day here. The teddy bear, fairy and squirrel hunt keep the children amused on the beautiful walk around the woods. Good play area and tasty meals on offer in tea house.

We have visited the Blue Pool several times in the past and each time it was a joy to visit. This visit was no exception. Lovely walks, peaceful & tranquil. The German Brass Band was great entertainment.
