Lovely animals but where are there ethics?

Loved visiting the animals. The chickens are very friendly and eat out of your hand. The goats are curious and friendly as are the alpacas and donkey. Had a great hour or so here... read more

Loved visiting the animals. The chickens are very friendly and eat out of your hand. The goats are curious and friendly as are the alpacas and donkey. Had a great hour or so here. As a true animal lover I was horrified to find the cafe serving animal flesh from the same species of some of their rescue animals!!!! How... More

This is a RESCUE CENTRE, if you're looking for a zoo try somewhere else, and certainly somewhere more expensive. I have been going to Mistley and this park for at least 17 years, I am now 27 and still go from time to time to cuddle a chicken or feed the alpacas! This is not a modern farm park or... More

Mistletoe park isn't about posh fencing etc it's about RESCUE, these people work hard for no return, the entrance fee is so small but it helps feed the animals most of which would be dead if not for this place and the volunteers, I have been in rescue all my life and know when an animal is being cared for,...

Website inaccurate indicating three years... More

Well I was a bit shocked, especially when they charged £3 each, very run down, needs a lot of work, and saw a massive rat there as well, very disappointed,

This is a great venue in a lovely location - the basic premise being to visit and support farmyard animals which have been rescued or are being looked after. There is a predominance of chickens, geese and ducks, but also pigs, goats, horses, donkeys etc. The animals seemed happy if a little hungry. The facilities themselves looked somewhat worn down...
