Our day at Raystede was most enjoyable, I went
there a few years ago on one of their fete and
dog shows and it was absolutely packed and I
couldn't easily get around the place on my
scooter for people everywhere, so it was lovely
being able to explore Raystede unheeded.
It was also a lot bigger than I remember, and
looks like there has been a lot of work carried
out there recently, the new dog pound was just enormous, bigger than many hotel rooms,
the dogs are certainly very well looked after,
each one being taken for a walk three times a
day, often by volunteers. They also have a
number of exotic birds housed in cages easily
large enough for them to fly around in.
Horses and Donkeys were also to be found and we
were told all about them and where they came
from by enthusiastic staff members. We also
found a number of goats rabbits cats and all
We took our puppy Emmie along as
dogs were welcome and found a lovely walk around
the grounds for her.
During lunch one of the organisers took the time
to explain what Raystede was all about, and that
was very interesting.
All in all a lovely day helped by friendly and
