A sunny day with a bright blue sky obviously helped us appreciate the Blue Pool - but it is undoubtably a little gem awaiting your discovery. The pathways offer varied and interesting vistas of the Blue Pool and its little neighbour. Plenty of seating - to simply stop and stare, to reflect, to be. Plenty of children's play equipment tucked... More

I'm not sure if we missed something here but paid £6 each to walk around a lake and couldn't even let the dog off the lead ???

Pretty walk around lake. Didn't look particularly blue although I believe weather conditions can change this. It was just a large green lake surrounded by pretty woods. Would struggle to spend more than a couple of hours there. Walked comfortably around with a very old labrador very gently took about 40 mins. Museum very disjointed not a clear explanation of...

It's a lovely spot but very small so we walked around the 'pond' in about 40 mins (with a Westie sniffing every corner). It was £6.50 each to get in and we were back in the car and off again within the hour. Bit of a rip off!!

There is something very tranquil about the site - even on a sunny bank holiday monday when we tried to visit Corfe Castle and gave up. The cost to get in is £6 per adult (apparently wheelchairs can come in for free). The peacefulness was very welcome, bird song and beautiful water. Lovely paths all around the lake. We saw... More

After years of passing the signs for the Blue Pool we decided to visit it. What a lovely surprise ! A well marked out walk for the nible and not so nimble around a lovely pool which on the day we visited was really blue and also showed nice reflections for some angles. You never know when to stop taking... More
