Explore 110 acres of country park and nature reserve, discover how green you are with our interactive displays or just chill out by the ponds and feed the ducks. Little ones will love our reading corner and giant games and can burn off energy in our outdoor areas.

In the Visitor Centre you will find the gift shop which stocks a variety of locally crafted gifts including jewellery, toys and games, handbags, scarves, books, stationery and wildlife surveillance equipment.

Black Bull

featured image from the article: Waters’ Edge Country Park & Visitor Centre

The newly opened Black Bull has an amazing new look and serves a fantastic new draught range including local cask ales and craft beers! Black Bull’s team have enjoyed pulling together a eclectic range of wines and spirits including an extensive gin selection and the team have been doing lots of training to make sure your coffee and teas are served perfectly.

On the food front you can find some wonderful juicy burgers alongside pub classics such as fish and chips, salads, steaks and of course Sunday roasts – they all go brilliantly with a beer! Not that hungry? choose from a delicious snacks and sharing range.

I’d like to take a look at the menu
