Walk

Take a leisurely guided walk among the farm fields. So that you can enjoy the walk and get to know your alpaca we only take up to four alpacas at a time. The leisurely walk is about a mile and your visit time about an hour and a half. This includes a chat about the boys and their fibre and a chance to feed the alpacas.

Suitable for everyone over 8 years old.

One person leading each alpaca with up to one adult or two children over 8 accompanying. Please call is if you have a slightly younger child and you feel that they are confident enough to join the walk. Walks available Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and on Saturday - 10am or 1.30pm (10am only in the summer months). Please book in advance.

£20 per alpaca

Alpacas are curious, friendly, and endearing animals. They produce luxurious fibre each year, which is hypoallergenic, soft and warm. They are also gentle on the land. We currently have a team of 8 alpacas of various ages. Each brings his own special qualities to the group.
Benjamin

Benjamin

The Boss

Ben is our oldest boy and is a beautiful fawn Suri. He knows exactly what he is doing and where he is going

Dumbledore

Dumbledore

The curious one

Dumbledore is a lovely suri boy. Occasionally a little anxious, he is happy to follow Ben wherever he goes

Sky Thunder

Sky Thunder

Likes to stay at the back

Sky is a stunning Rose Grey Huacaya. He has the finest fibre on the farm. His sight is not so good in one eye, so he prefers to stay at the back of the pack and follow.

Sting

Sting

The best things come in small packages

Sting is a white (most of the time!) Huacaya. He has beautiful fibre and is a favourite with our younger visitors. He doesn't go out on walks as he may have early arthritis.

Fabian

Fabian

Tall, dark and handsome

Fabian is possibly our largest Suri boy, but is a real sweetheart. He can be shy at times but likes to join in with the others.

Genesis

Genesis

Keen as Mustard

Genesis is a very accomplished walker for his young age and a very friendly Suri alpaca. He will be first in the queue for everything

Gemini

Gemini

The baby of the bunch

Gem is our littlest Suri alpaca, and is learning the ropes. His fibre has incredible lustre. Best friends with Genesis.

Dakota

Dakota

The super friendly one

Dakota is the newest member of our team. He has made himself right at home and is a very friendly alpaca.
