My wife and I took our dog for a walk around the lake this summer. £7 entry felt quite expensive for what ended up being a 40 minute walk through some woods and around the lakes. The tea room was a lovely end to the...More

We visited The Blue Pool whilst staying in the area, it was a nostalgic visit for her ladyship, who'd visited with family as a youngster. Unfortunately (as mentioned by another) it seemed a little pricey, for what essentially was a walk around a lake in...More
