Quoile Countryside Centre

Quoile Countryside Centre

The park includes a ramble for people with limited mobility alongside a wooded riverside path. There are excellent interpretative edicational exhibitions and picnic areas. The bird hide overlooking the freshwater lake allows for excellent bird watching opportunities.

In summer, an abundance of swans and various breeding wildfowl can be seen, including the scarcely seen Gadwall. Migrating wading birds make the area home in spring and autumn and in winter large numbers of widgeon and ducks are abundant.

The attractive stone cottage visitor centre (open seasonally) with a nature garden features displays on the unique wildlife and history of the area. The centre also has scooter and wheelchair access.
