We visited the Blue lake this year in May, it was a dull day and not very nice weather wise so maybe didn't get the full impact of the pool changing colour. We found this an expensive trip for a walk around the lake and may be better for families with some children under 16 because they go free. We... More

This is a wonderful place to visit - ideal for families of all ages. With a map supplied showing walking routes around the pool to suit anyone's needs and then at the end a small tea house serving delicious homemade tea and cakes that, in our opinion, unlike many tourist attractions do not break the bank. We would certainly recommend... More

My overall impression of this is that the whole site is a bit faded and shabby, bearing in mind you have to pay £7 per adult to get in. It's a lake surrounded by trees. The water can look blue in certain lights, but I think you'd need full sun to see it in all its glory. We found it... More

The walk around the pool was lovely and worth the entrance fee. We saw lots of wildlife (including a small herd of deer) and had fun exploring the various different paths. My daughter enjoyed the playground. The tea rooms, however, were a serious let down and almost spoiled the trip. Charged nearly £6 for a toasted sandwich that would have... More

Took the 40 Bus from Swanage, got dropped off the middle of nowhere. Had a lovely mile walk down a track to the Blue Pool. Lovely tea shop and beautiful place to walk around. Only disappointment was the food in the cafe. Paid £5.50 for Cheese and Tomato Sandwich. Processed Bread and cheap grated cheese with a bit of Salad... More

Have not been to Blue Pool for about 10 years but my son and I were camping in the area over the Easter holidays so thought we would visit for a couple of hours. It was a glorious day which I guess help but we had such a super time ...we walked the paths, enjoyed the woods and spied a... More

My sister and I were going to Corfe Castle for the day, but were going to stop off on the way to look at the Blue Pool, as suggested by her husband. We had no information on it, other than it was a blue pool that her husband had visited around 40 years ago. Surprisingly neither of us had looked... More

Visited the Blue Pool today and thought this place is a gem. We had lovely walk around the woods and the pool and ended with a cream tea sat outside in the sunshine. Not a huge variety of things to do but a wonderful place if you like walking through the woods with beautiful views of the pool.
