Our alpaca experience is bespoke to every single visitor to the farm. To begin we will go on a very short walk around the alpaca paddocks. After dropping off your alpaca buddies, we will then go back out into the paddock where we will spend some time amongst all of our wonderful boys! You will be provided with an 'alpaca chart' to help you spot and name all of our boys, plus the opportunity to hand feed the rest of the herd. The total experience lasts for 60 minutes in our paddocks where there is no risk of encountering other people.
This is perfect for those who either don't fancy or can't walk for 90 minutes (the length of our treks), have already been on a trek and fancy something different, are perhaps a bit more nervous around animals and want a less hands on activity, or those with people 15 or under who wish to attend.
If you want a more hands on activity spending time with just one alpaca and are 16 or over then we reccomend our ‘alpaca treks’ instead (please visit or go back to our webpage and follow the appropriate link).
Before booking onto one of our alpaca experiences, please take the time to read our guidelines below to make sure our alpaca experiences are suitable for you.
A. Anyone 15 or under MUST have a paying adult, 18 or over, attending. Adult tickets are for anyone 16 or over, but for insurance reasons we require a minimum of one person 18 or over booked onto the experience per 2 children (15 or under).
B. Whilst we have extensively trained our herd and exposed them to all sorts of different things, alpacas are ultimately animals. In the paddock experiences they may come right up for a cuddle, they may come over to be hand fed, or they may simply mill around you. This experience is designed for people to come and enjoy their company and to spend some much needed time in the fresh air relaxing. We do a short walk at the start so everyone has the opportunity to have a real up close and personal encounter with an alpaca, but after this the experience is focused on enjoying the whole herd's company.
C. Due to the current coronavirus situation there are NO TOILET FACILITIES. We have hand-wash stations plus hand sanitiser available at multiple points. We will also provide gloves but we also suggest wearing a mask (we do not provide masks).
D. Suitable footwear is compulsory as we walk across grass. During summer we reccomend trainers or walking boots, and during winter walking boots or wellies are best.
Alpacas have softer feet then horses but we insist that toes are covered all year round to be on the safe side. In the event of rain we do not allow umbrellas on the trek so please bring waterproofs instead.
E. Due to the nature of the ground, wheel chairs are not permitted. Some walking aids may be suitable but there is still a short 5 minute walk to the barn itself from the car park. Please get in touch to discuss your exact requirements before booking.
F. No dogs, including guide and assistance dogs.
G. We recommend the use of insect repellent due to the nature of being with animals in open countryside.
H. We run our experiences in all weather, except storms or when there are dangerous road conditions locally.
I. All trekkers must only arrive on site 5-10 minutes maximum before the start of the trek, you will then be collected from your car by a guide when we are ready for the session to begin. If you are going to be late please get in touch as soon as possible.
!!!! J. We do not offer refunds, in the event of a cancelation we will transfer your ticket to a gift voucher which will be valid for 18 months. We require at least 72 hours notice if you need to cancel, any cancellations after this time will not be eligible for a gift voucher and the booking will be lost with no voucher, transfer or refund due. We often struggle to fill slots at such short notice and as such lose business. !!!!
K. If you or anyone in your household is showing coronavirus symptoms you must get in touch to rearrange.
L. All of our experiences at this time are private, with the idea behind this being you only attend these walks with your household or those within your support bubble.
M. Strictly no spectators.
