Small, dammed plunge pool in brook at edge of moor. Shallow (1m) but set beneath flat rock rapids with nice picnicking grass alongside. Paddling for children. Sheltered and balmy in summer. Park in South Zeal.

Great little pool. Had a lovely time there after Chagstock festival.
Nice smooth rocks for sliding down into water. Sandy base.

Visited Shilley Pool on a warm, overcast Wednesday afternoon in July 2013. Greeted one family who were leaving as I arrived and another who were arriving as I left, but for the hour I was there I had the place to myself. Several easy entrance points and riverbed is comfortable to stand on in bare feet. Water tasted neutral. The path through the bracken dwindles to non-existent further upstream, suggesting the path serves only as access to this spot. Good pair of boots needed to negotiate boggy parts of path.
