We look forward to welcoming all our new and regular visitors to the park and tearooms, and hope that everyone has an enjoyable visit.

Here at Mistley Place Park we have over 1,000 rescued animals at any one time, and the number of animals continues to increase daily. Those currently being looked after, which visitors to the park can see, include: goats, sheep, ducks, guinea pigs, dogs, chickens, cats, horses, rabbits, alpacas, plus the occasional peacock!


Many thanks to all our loyal visitors and customers for your ongoing support. However, we urgently need additional volunteers to help look after the animals. If you are able to help or know anyone who may be interested (min age 21), please contact the Animal Rescue team on 01206 396 048 or send an email to rehoming@mistleyplacepark.com

Each animal in the Park needs care and feeding, and whilst the staff dedicate their time to the well-being of the animals, the cost of running the Animal Rescue Centre needs to be met by charging an entrance fee and by generous donations from the public.

Our Cafe / Tearoom is outside of the animal park, and offers great value meals, sandwiches, snacks, iceareams and afternoon teas. Our extremely popular roast dinners are available on Wednesdays and Sundays and we cater for fish lovers every Friday with our 'chip-shop style' fish and chips, all cooked to perfection.

If you would like to pay us a visit, make a donation, enjoy our tearooms or simply find out more, please contact:
