Went with two elderly relatives with the dog. The dog walk around the forest was great and very beautiful, however, even the easy walk was too rugged for the oldies and they had to sit out in the cafe and visit the 'museum'. The tea...More

I really enjoyed visiting this wonderfully uplifting place, where I had first been brought as a young child, even though it was a day to dodge showers. The pool itself is extremely beautiful & breath taking, but do take a walk through the woods too:...More

We visited the blue pool over 25 years ago and I certainly don't remember having to pay £7 a head for the entrance fee. We have plenty of lovely walks with lakes in our local area that we don't have to pay to visit, but...More

We love it here. The children love doing the hunts around the pool and playing in the parks, and the grown ups love the views around the lake and the delicious cream tea at the end! Great value day out. Beautiful on a sunny day...More
