Blue Pool is located in the village of Furzebrook, near Corfe Castle. As the name suggests the attraction is incredibly popular with visitors thanks to a picturesque pool that lies at the centre of the 25–acre estate. The area was once used to quarry clay and tiny fragments remain suspended in the water. As the light hits them the pool changes colour – ranging from bright turquoise to a darker shade of green depending on the day.
In addition to marvelling at the pool itself, visitors can take a walk around the impressive grounds. There are various marked trails through the wood and heathland to the waters edge. The red route is suitable for pushchair and prams, whereas the green route includes some steps.
You’re likely to see a variety of wildlife during your trip. There are usually various species of bird, butterfly and dragon flies on the water. Squirrels, deer, lizards, badgers and foxes have all been spotted in the woods.
There are fairy doors and model squirrels hidden in the woods for children to find. There are also a couple of play areas to explore.
If you don’t bring a picnic it’s no problem, there are tea rooms on site. Serving traditional cream teas, cold drinks, a selection of light lunches, snacks and ice creams to keep the children happy, you certainly won’t go hungry during your stay.
