We went here on the fly with no research perhaps we should have done before driving down the lane but when we got there do I really want to pay £21 as a family to see a blue pond?? Maybe not. I'm perhaps not doing...More

We stopped here on a whim and was extremely surprised by just how beautiful it was. A walk round the lake reminded us of being in Canada, extremely peaceful and beautiful scenery. The kids play areas were great as well. Definitely worth a visit.

A striking woodland feature in a really nice setting. It takes around 30 minutes to an hour to walk around at a slow pace. Plenty of opportunities to sit, watch the pool, wildlife and have a picnic. No cafe open on the day and £5.00...More

Pleasant walk around the 'pool' but extensive and disappointing vandalism to natural rock faces with individuals choosing to scribe their names. An expensive attraction when surrounding landscape just as beautiful but free. The tearoom was a huge disappointment - admittedly it was raining and so...More

The Blue Pool is a natural phenomenon in Dorset. There is a very good tea shop selling excellent quality produce. I particularly liked it because it was so peaceful and calm. The staff were kind too and sympathetic

Ample parking and a pleasant walk around the pool. The pool isn't as large as I had assumed but nice none the less. Would probably say put aside an hour or two to leisurely stroll and stop around the pool.

No, we never saw any boats and I would have thought that entering the water was forbidden, its not that type of lake .
