Welcome to Mistley Place Park

Back to shcool: Following half term week, we are now back to normal opening hours, where we are closed each Monday as normal. We will update the website soon with details about end of term / Easter opening times.


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 tearooms on 01206 396 048 or send an email to rehoming@mistleyplacepark.com 

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!

Come and meet our newest guests at the Park....Izzy and Tiber, our friendly Alpacas from South America, famous for their fiber, used for making knitted and woven items.

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, by the tearooms, and of course by generous donations from the public.

Out tearooms are outside of the animal park, and offer great value meals, sandwiches, snacks 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:
