The signage at the pay booth has been copied from the National Trusts own style but that was the only similarity, it got worse from there onwards. With some care, attention to detail and an owner who actually gives a hoot & has some foresight, this place could be so much better & a welcome site for repeat visits but... More

Very friendly staff at the entrance and caffe , we looked around this beautiful spot and in the sunlight it was glorious and a great walk. There were two circuits one with steps and one that was more manageable if you did not want the steps. Lovely grounds took about 30 minutes to walk around the water and then a... More

This is such a beautiful place. For the older person a gentle walk in the woods around a beautiful pool. So quiet and tranquil with the most delightful tea room with fresh cakes and sandwiches. We were so tempted to eat but had other plans. The shop was nice but nothing too tempting. Take the children, nothing commercial to spoil... More

To see the best colours of the water at Blue Pool it is advisable to visit on a clear,sunny day.Walking around the 25 acres and the pool was a delight,with only birdsong to accompany us.Several wooden seats are scattered around the pool area,so a nice place to just relax and enjoy this lovely spot.After your walk the tearoom offers a...

Smaller than it comes across it is still a lovely place to go, suitable for young kids (not with scooters or bikes) and a lovely staggered play area built into the woodland walk. Really peaceful in a beautiful surrounding, but surprisingly small, not a whole day out.

Waste of money - very expensive!!! Literally took us 20 mins to walk around and the pool was not blue! Just looked like a standard green lake! Rubbish!

This is a most beautiful place to visit, see the lovely blue pool, walk along the waters edge, take in the fresh air and listen to the birdsong. benches situated all around so plenty of time to sit and relax. Excellent tea rooms dogs welcome on leads, ideal for any age group and families.

We had a lovely walk around Blue Pool, and then we went to the cafe. The hot meals were awful. We ordered the shepherds pie and lasagne. I am very sure they were the cheapest of ready meals popped into the microwave, very unappetizing and definitely not worth the price we paid for them. The rest of my family ordered... More

If you want somewhere peaceful, tranquil and relaxing to visit, this is the place to go to.The pool and surrounding trees are very photographic, so take your camera. A slow walk around the pool taking in all the various views and different colours of the pool is a good way to spend your time. If you want a longer walk... More
