“Stunning”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

Two hour drive and well worth it. Took my daughter and her friend both aged 10, they loved it!!
The hill is steep and I don't think you would get a pushchair or wheelchair up there. No toilets about or bins (so take ur litter home plz, you wouldn't want to spoil the area)
The water is blue and is definitely freezing, but we still had a quick paddle ;)
The views from the top are outstanding.
Not alot of parking available either. We walked up the lane. The steams, woodland area and waterfall just add to the whole experience.

“Blue Lake Memories”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Have been coming here since I was three years old.My grandparents lived in Fford Hendoll and spent all my school holidays here.Such an idyllic place and out of season is possibly the best time as it is so quiet and peaceful.Climb right up to the top level to see the most amazing view of Fairbourne stretching out into the Mawddach.Nice that it is not signposted as it remains a well kept secret.

“Breathtaking beauty from this hidden gem”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We really enjoyed the trek up to this remote quarry and were fortunate enough to have a sunny day so the views of the coast in themselves were gorgeous. However nothing can prepare you for the sight as you exit the tunnel to find yourself next to a clear blue pool. The reflections are absolutely stunning and we were so lucky to be here when no one else was, so it was very quiet and peaceful. A hidden gem.

“A peaceful place”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is well worth a visit, the views are spectacular, and sitting by the lake is so relaxing,( I didn't have children with me). you would have to keep a very close watch on children.

“PLEASE TAKE YOUR LITTER HOME WITH YOU!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is a unique and beautiful place which dispite being on private land is free to visit but is now being spoiled by a small minority of ignorant people who think it is OK to leave their litter behind.If this continues it will be closed to the public which would be a shame.
