The Blue Pool Map

Established in 1935 The Blue Pool Tearooms & Furzebrook Estate has been welcoming visitors for over 85 years!

The Blue Pool Logo

Under private ownership we are delighted to announce that The Blue Pool is open. It is our aim to take a respectful and sympathetic approach to the improvement of this popular tourist attraction and Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The Blue Pool Nature Reserve & Tearooms opened its doors to the public nearly 100 years ago! A collection of beautiful old buildings packed with art deco / art nouveau charm and set under a Canadian cedar shingle roof.

Over 30 acres of paths and walkways with a children’s playground, lookout and popular ‘Fairy Door Hunt’, spot the animals in the trees, enjoy an ice-cream by The Blue Pool.  

“Nurturing the ecological diversity of this special site. Changing the way we interact with the environment, viewing our landscape with fresh eyes”.

Our cynical world has few surprises left, if you have never visited us before then prepare to be entranced. The deep waters of The Blue Pool offer a kaleidoscope of colour”. 

Why not consider hiring our ‘Speakeasy Deck’ for that special occasion?

Nature Reserve...

We Love Nature

A nature reserve (also known as a wildlife refuge, wildlife sanctuary or nature conservation area), is a protected area of importance for flora, fauna, or features of geological or other special interest, which is reserved and managed for purposes of conservation and to provide special opportunities for study or research. They may be designated by government institutions in some countries, or by private landowners, such as charities and research institutions. Nature reserves fall into different levels of protection afforded by local laws. The Furzebrook Estate which incorporates The Blue Pool Nature Reserve & Tearooms is hugely important to the local area, not just for its historical value but as a haven for wildlife. We have recently introduced wild ponies which roam freely across the estate, mangalica pigs and bees in our own apiary. 

It Is a Gift

  • Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three “R’s” to conserve natural resources and landfill space.
  • Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.
  • Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.
  • Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.
  • Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart seafood choices at www.fishwatch.gov.
  • Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
  • Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!
  • Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
  • Don’t send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.
  • Bike more. Drive less.

It is our ambition to protect the wonderful ecology of this site for generations to come.
