“Relaxing and beautiful atteraction”

The Blue Pool and Tea House
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Great if the weather is sunny or the pool won't reflect it's colour so well. Nice easy walk buy trying if you are pushing a wheel chair or pram. Our dogs were welcome and the tea house was a nice place to sit and relax following our walk,

We have just spent a lovely afternoon here with my mum and 8 year old son. We took a picnic with us, there are plenty of spots to eat with benches dotted all around the site. Due to the rain it was a little muddy but not too bad, would recommend bringing wellies for children. We used paths that took us down to the waters edge and the high paths which took us to a fantastic viewing point of Corfe Castle and Poole Harbour. The blue pool is amazing, it was an overcast and drizzly day but the colour and beauty did still impress. My son loved looking for insects and animals, we brought some binoculars. There is a small adventure playground in the woods with slides, swings etc. My son loved this and it was hard to drag him away.
We had a cream tea in the lovely cafe. Some people have said on here that the scones are small but you do get 2 with a cream tea, they are fab and freshly made.The cafe is so quaint and has plenty of room and a nice terrace also. The best bit was the real log fire, we grabbed a table right in front of it!
The toilets are very clean and have won lots of awards. The gift shop was nice, my son bought 2 little things.
A lovely day out. Can't wait to visit again.

Yes... it is a nice like and quiet forest but £5 per adult for this attraction seems to be too much.

Ive visited here many times, its a lovely walk, lots of seating and photographed the pool many times, the pool is forever changing colour with the light and time of year same as the surrounding woodland.
Parking is on a large flat green area.
Toilets available always clean
Food pricey and not a lot of choice so i would recommend bringing a picnic if you are a family on a tight budget.

Ideal half day trip, we usually then visit corfe village or swanage for the late afternoon and evening.

Visited blue pool for the 2nd time as we had a voucher that saves quite a bit of money. It's expensive for nothing to do. Lovely quiet walk with a beautiful view. Play parks are on for young ones to pass some time. Tea rooms are quite pricey along with entrance fee (full price) still a lovely place to visit
