About

Whilst Poolsbrook Country Park remains open we are asking that during the Coronavirus outbreak visitors ensure that social distancing guidelines are followed whilst exercising in the park. Play areas must not be used.

Poolsbrook Country Park has something for everyone with miles of walks, woodlands, lakes (great for fishing), meadows, sand play areas for children. cafe, picnic sites and four miles of trails of cycling, horse riding and walking and lakes for angling.

The park is home to many forms of wildlife including an impressive range of birds. These include Great Crested Grebe, Cormorants, Mute Swans, Canada Geese, Pink Footed Geese, Wheatears, Yellow Wagtails and even a Red Throated Pipit and Siberian Chiffchaffs have been spotted.

The Coffee Stop Cafe in the Pavilion serves hot and cold drinks and food and is usually open Tuesdays to Sundays (longer in school holidays).

The site is also home to a caravan club site which incorporates a range of sustainable resource and energy-saving features and is heralded as a blueprint for caravan sites of the future. This caravan site has 86 pitches and top-class amenities.
