We visited here on a very warm afternoon so the shady woodland on the estate was very welcome. Our first surprise however was the cost of the entrance ticket. At £7.00 per person (£6.00 concession for over 60's). We thought it rather expensive. The blue...More

Firstly, the entrance cost is a bit steep. Free entry for under 16s though, so may balance out if you have children with you, plus the parking is free. After the payment booth there is a display of plants for sale, not sure who the...More

£7 entry per adult makes me feel this is overpriced. In the morning we visited old Harry's rocks for free! The walk was lovely but I think entry for adults needs to be reduced.

This is a nice woodland walk and quiet but can not justify the entry fee of £7 and on the day we visited the pool was more green than blue . Over all disappointing and would not recommend mainly due to the cost of entry.

The entrance price is a little steep and £5 would be better. The pool constantly changes between blue to green due to atmospheric conditions so unless anyone is posting the colour then perhaps ring the shop to check. The... More
