Blue Pool Adventures

Posted on


I bought a voucher online for the Blue Pool which gave us admission and a cream tea for 2 which was almost half price and a great deal.  We visited on a super sunny day in June and had such a lovely time, it almost felt like we were on holiday for the day.

After paying you will see there is a stand by the plants stall and this is where you can pick up some trail forms.  Before we even had a chance to look around my son fell and scraped his knee and a lovely man passing us said he had the first aid box and within minutes he was cleaned up and presented with a huge magic plaster which instantly put a big smile on his face.

The view from the tea rooms is spectacular and we quickly settled down for our lovely cream teas.  I noticed they had quite a variety of sandwiches, pasties and specials on offer and everything was very reasonably priced.  

After our delicious cream tea with homemade scones we went to find the Red Route which we had been advised was suitable for my elderly Auntie and the pushchair as it had no steps.  I visited the Blue Pool years ago and followed the Green Route and had no idea that there actually was another route which took you right around the top of the pool and also around a small pond with ducks.

The trail form we picked up invited us to find and count lots of things in the trees like model squirrels, coins and even an owl and woodpecker.  There were also lots of cute fairy doors at some of the tree stumps and my son never tired of knocking on them (even though we told him we had to be quiet so we didn't wake the fairies).

After a good hour or so we found the play park and then to our surprise we found another 2 hidden very nearby.  My boy loved the big slide, but beware it does get very hot in the sun.

While we were sitting in the park I saw a sign which said ‘Corfe Castle Viewpoint’ so I climbed the steps and had good old giggle at the top.  You can see Corfe Castle however I would advise you take a magnifying glass with you!  (I should also apologise to any walkers who saw a woman running around frantically trying to find a bush and then suddenly whipping her trousers down - I had a HUGE ant run up my leg haha).

We spent over 2 hours hours walking around the Blue Pool and playing in the park so when we got back we visited the gift shop and had a look at the Wareham Bears which we all adored.

Just before leaving we took our forms to the Tea Rooms to receive our son’s certificate and bought a souvenir fridge magnet in the gift shop plus a well deserved ice lolly. 


There is a lovely picnic spot around by the small pond however we also passed several benches around the pool and park.

Don’t forget the baby wipes, there’s lots for little ones to touch and feel and I was glad I had some for snack time.

Don’t be afraid to take a pushchair, the ground was no problem and should you wish to pop down the steps for a photo I’m sure it would be safe.

The toilets are found by the gift shop and there are baby change facilities in the disabled toilets.

Children under 16 are free if accompanied by an adult.*

There is a small museum located to the side of the tea rooms which shows the early history of clay mining in the area.


Thank You to everyone at the Blue Pool for a wonderful day, it truly is worth every penny and a real hidden gem.
