Rare Breeds Centre

Our Rare Breeds Centre

The Rare Breeds Centre is a long standing favourite with people of all ages. You will love our array of unique and fascinating animals. We have some real characters here, too. After being greeted by the braying of Dylan the Donkey and the graceful beauty of Cookie the Exmoor Pony, you can follow the never-ending antics of Rambo the woolly pig.
