This is a relatively expensive attraction at £7 a person, and unforutnely you get no more than 'it says on the tin'. The walk is nice, especially overlooking the (not so) blue pool. However this is all there is to this attraction, and at £7...More

Visited here on hot summer afternoon to enjoy an activity in the shade of the wood. Had a fantastic time, perfect for keeping our 4 year old entertained. Play area, fairy and squirrel spotting made it fun for her and we enjoyed the beauty of...More

I hadn't been there for 50yrs. Not really pricey to visit the Pool. The restaurant still offers good choice of food and drink. Grounds/walk around the Blue Pool vary from shady with visible tree roots to sandy just behind the Pool. Be aware the colour...More

A lovely place to go for peace and quiet. However the entry charge is slightly on the high size. Would also prefer if the scones were proper Dorset scones and they were very small. However, the location is well kept and on a good day...More

My wife and I spent a nice couple of hours there strolling around the lake. Luckily we went on a lovely sunny afternoon which made for a very pleasant walk. It's very peaceful and, even though we went at the weekend, it wasn't overly busy....More
