Service Description

Come and join us on the farm for a unique family alpaca encounter in the paddock. After your arrival, we’ll introduce you to the herd (each with their own names and personalities) and teach you a few facts about alpacas and alpaca keeping, we’ll spend time engaging with the alpacas, feeding them and taking plenty of photos. Older children (10+) and adults can lead the alpacas on a short walk in the paddock. Please note - this experience is entirely in the paddock. We do not go on a long walk around the farm (please book our alpaca walk for ages 10+ if you would like to walk the alpacas around the farm). The experience is approximately 60 minutes. You are welcome to bring your own picnic for after the experience to eat at one of our picnic benches (not in the paddock and after hand washing of course). You can stay for an extra hour. The cost is £40 per family (up to 2 adults and 3 children).
