Rising Sun Country Park an unspoilt bit of land near the city of Newcastle and historic Wallsend Roman Wall country, and a short trip to the coast. Lovely walks, farm, ponds and loads of birds.

Great place to drop in for a bite to eat and cup of tea. Meals are tasty and well presented, staff are friendly and attentive. Location looks out over the Rising Sun Country Park Lake. Plenty of parking.

this is a lovely place to eat or just have a cuppa. I take my grand children there often after a lovely walk or feeding the horses or donkeys. the food is fresh and it varies with the seasons. the views are great in winter or summer and there is a lovely outdoor area. the staff are friendly and helpful.

A day out in a country park so close to the city centre would you believe it? Well go along with your kids, dogs, family or them all. Fabulous.

I cycle there from home. Mostly off road and interesting. The Rising Sun country park is quite picturesque.

The best has been made out of an old pit-heap and colliery site. There is a hill with a great view, walks, woods, bird pond and sometimes there is a cafe open with stables close by. And all this only abou 4 miles from central Newcastle. Great
