The Blue Pool Nature Reserve & Tearooms forms part of the Furzebrook Estate which traces its history back nearly 400 years.

Established in 1935 the Tearooms opened its doors to the public nearly 100 years ago! A beautiful old building packed with art deco / art nouveau charm under an American cedar shingle roof.

The reserve represents a fragile environment which was recognised for its uniqueness and received protection from exploitation well before global ecological damage became a public concern. 

The Blue Pool Nature Reserve & Tearooms and the colour phenomenon of its waters (caused by light diffracting from minuscule particles of clay suspended in its still depths) is steeped in history and is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

A true gem in the heart of the beautiful Purbecks.

We look forward to seeing you!
