The classic alpaca experience involves meeting and feeding our 8 alpacas as well as saying Hi to our Miniature Shetland Ponies and friendly rescue Chickens. You'll be introduced to all the animals by name and learn a little about their personalities and preferences.

We'll match 3 suitable alpacas to your group before a short handling session to help you get the best out of your alpaca when on the walk. Then we'll set off for a guided walk for around 45 minutes during which time you can ask questions and enjoy the alpacas company.

The walk is on uneven ground but alpacas are steady animals so it is suitable for the young and young at heart! We have a 5 minute alpaca snack stop halfway around so feel free to bring a drink or snack for yourselves if you would like.

Off road pushchairs are ok, motorised wheelchairs are ok, manual wheelchairs we think unfortunately would struggle but we have other options for you:
