We look forward to seeing you. 

The Blue Pool forms part of the Furzebrook Estate which traces its history back nearly 400 years. Formally a clay-pit, dug by hand and abandoned in the early 19th Century to be naturally filled with rainwater and the colour phenomenon of its waters (caused by light diffracting from minuscule particles of clay suspended in its still depths) began to attract attention.

In 1935 The Blue Pool was opened to the public, by the father of the much loved, late Jennifer Barnard, and its fragile environment received protection from exploitation well before global ecological damage became a public concern. 

Please note The Blue Pool Nature Reserve & Tearooms is a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and as such we respectfully ask all visitors to help us to maintain this area. Please take rubbish home, pick up after your dog and assist us in our attempts to use only sustainable products – thank you.

We look forward to seeing you!
