The Blue Pool

‘Idyllic nature venue with beautiful scenery and tearoom’

The Blue Pool Nature Reserve

Established in 1935 The Blue Pool Tearooms & Furzebrook Estate has been entertaining visitors for over 85 years! Now under new ownership the management aim to take a respectful and sympathetic approach to this unique Site of Special Scientific Interest. The reserve represents a fragile environment, recognised for its uniqueness and protected from exploitation well before global ecological damage became a public concern.

The Blue Pool was once a large clay pit where Purbeck Ball Clay was extracted. The colour phenomenon of its waters is caused by light diffracting from minuscule particles of clay suspended in its depths. (The lake does change colour depending on the weather / water levels!). The lake is part of the 25 acre Furzebrook estate- a park of beautiful heath woodland and gorse. There are many lovely, scenic walks and wonderful views to discover on your visit.

 

Facilities at The Blue Pool include…

A large tea room (established in 1935) in beautiful old building packed with art deco / art nouveau charm under an American cedar shingle roof. Serving lunch, cakes and refreshments including traditional cream teas and Purbeck Ice Cream.
