“Picturesque”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Spent a lovely afternoon at the Blue Pool, and found it a very tranquil experience. The reflections of the trees in the pool, not to mention the colour of the water was just beautiful.
The on site tea room was an unexpected delight too, all those homemade goodies! So difficult to choose just one (what a good excuse to go back).
Will definitely return in the autumn when the leaves start to turn as I think it ill be spectacular.

“A lovely walk”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Myself and my partner went here after being recommended to go. The full price being £11 for us both would have been a little much (we had a 241 offer so for that it was very worth it)
The walk was very nice and the blue was most defiantly blue :)
I would have liked to know a little more information about the pool, ie how deep it was and how it was formed etc.
I would say if you in the area and its a nice day take a trip over to it.

The tea room was a little pricey and could do with some TLC.

“Special Place”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Great place for young and old to visit for half day or longer. Pool changes as light changes so take your camera. Variety of walk routes and viewing platforms for all abilities. Dogs welcome on lead. Also links with other walks and cycle routes. Several interest activities such as squirrel hunt (rather difficult) and fairy doors for the very young. Plant sales complement great planned woodland and ornamental beds. Popular tearoom with range of food. Feted cream tea, a little under whelming as two small scones a bit bicarb in taste and ordinary tea. Outdoor space and plenty of benches. Very enjoyable. Reasonable price. Excellent disabled access and facilities

“Rather lovely”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

A beautiful, peaceful spot - the walks are so secluded that even though there were others there, we felt like we had the place all to ourselves. Some stunning views of this beautiful pool as you walk round.

At £15 for a family of four it's not the cheapest way to spend a few hours but it's certainly restful.
