Went again the children love it, fantastic value coffee shop selling freshly cooked food, Yes the place is looking a little run down but try offering help instead of criticism You could visit Jimmys Farm down the road and pay 3 x the amount to get in and the money goes straight in the owners pocket, here the money goes...

Yep sure is its a RESCUE centre, The staff are mainly volunteers which means for those whose knowledge does not seem to contain the word VOLUNTEER is someone who does things... More

Pigs, horses, donkeys, goats and alpackers, rabbits, ferrets and hamsters. We walked around the animals and on the woodland walk - beautiful on a sunny dry day. Then we went to the tea rooms for...

Stopped for lunch at the animal rescue centre, food was freshly prepared and very tasty 😋. Staff were very friendly and obliging. Centre itself is a bit messy but with chickens,geese etc wondering around free you can't expect anything else. Well worth a visit just for the food.

I returned here with my wife and two young children having previously visited 3 years ago. Although we thought we knew what to expect, we were thoroughly disappointed at the lack of thought shown to the animals and their paying customers. Previously, all coupes had animals in and there were horse rides to keep the children entertained. On our return... 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

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
