We had a lovely trip to Blue Pool. Dogs friendly, which was one of the reasons we went. Beautiful walk, the children enjoyed the play area tucked in the woods and the tea rooms were a lovely finish.

Had a jacket potato for our lunch. Quick service and a good meal. Very basic menu and we felt there could be more variety. Staff very friendly

My partner and I had passed the sign for the Blue pool a few times, this time we decided to visit. Vastly overpriced for what you see, £7 to walk around a very small lake. The literature says the colour of the lake is blue...More
