What to do at Raystede
With 43 acres with two beautiful, large lakes, trees, fields and wildflowers, there are plenty of things to do and sights to see.
There are many scenic walks around our grounds – some of which are dog-friendly - where you can spot a huge variety of wildlife and spend time exploring our stunning nature spots. You may even see some of our animals on their daily strolls with their carers!
We have a lovely café on site serving up delicious hot and cold food, as well as snacks, cakes, ice creams and drinks to keep you going throughout the day. We have an extensive range of vegan and vegetarian options, and source all of our meat and dairy products from local, high welfare farms. All profits generated through the Raystede café go straight to providing care for our animals.
If you choose to bring your dog with you, why not stop off at our Pet Goods store and treat them to special something special. From luxury dog beds to squeaky toys and yummy biscuits, we’re sure you can find something for your best pal. Again, all profits from our Pet Goods store go directly towards helping our beautiful animals.
We also have our Raystede charity shop on site, where you can find some absolute bargains! From high-quality branded clothing to pre-loved books and bric-a-brac treat yourself or your loved ones. Don’t forget to try out our bespoke jams, marmalades, chutneys and divine butter shortbread too!
