My alpaca experience was a birthday present. Wanted to do this for ages and it didn’t disappoint. Isobel gave us a very amusing talk about the alpacas, loved that she knew all the names of the alpacas and their characteristics. Yes, it was muddy and a bit chilly standing in the field but that’s to be expected, Isobel gave us lots of information and made us laugh a lot. Have you thought about stand up Isobel 😉 Then the best bit, being assigned an alpaca. I walked Macchiato and he was very good. Loved having a munch on the grass and responded when I spoke to him with a little, low noise. Gorgeous! Lots of photo opportunities, chance to hand feed and run up the field and get your alpaca to go over a little jump. Didn’t think I could live alpacas more but this experience has proved I can. 🦙🦙🦙

Took my niece for her birthday treat as she is obsessed with Alpacas. She had an amazing time and seeing her big smile made it the best gift we’ve ever given. Thank you. You get a lot information about the Alpaca during your visit and she loved walking her alpaca worth every penny

I have been wanting to walk with alpacas for a long time now and a finally got to experience it a couple of weeks ago with my husband. The 'tour guide' was very knowledgeable and friendly and answered all of our questions as if she hadn't heard them a million times. The baby alpacas (cria) were delightful and I loved seeing how all the alpacas interacted with each other. There are about 90 animals there and as we walked around the fields we saw most of them. Very hard to resist the temptation to give them a cuddle but I did manage it. So enjoyable I may well go back again!!

The talk from Isabelle was interesting and informative. The alapacas were well looked after and absolutely gorgeous. Walking them needed a firm hand and you need not to be nervous they respond so well. We had Jasmine, Rosa and Tulip 3 Alpacas with different personalities such as people but they were matched well to us. Was one of the nest things we as a family have done. Yes they do spit and yes they do kick however it is explained why this happens and we saw they did that at each over in the talk but that was only because they felt threatened. and we were fully aware what to avoid doing to these lovely creatures. We as a family would go again.

We had a great day out seeing all the alpacas, with a very informative chat to begin with.. we did find the chat was a lot longer than the actual trek which we were really looking forward too the most, little disappointed. Also it would’ve been fun if we were able to choose the alpacas we would like to walk, like we’ve done in previous treks elsewhere. After the walk we got to go in the amazing gift shop at the end with so many beautiful pieces which finished off with a nice touch of tea and biscuits! All in all it was a fun day out.

Response from ButlersFarmAlpacas, Manager at Butlers Farm Alpacas
Responded 1 May 2019
Many thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed the day. Thanks for the feedback - it's always a difficult balance to please newcomers to alpacas as well as those that know about them already. The walking element has to cater for all ages and capabilities, hence we don't 'trek', we walk. Maybe in the future we can offer trekking, but unfortunately we do not currently have the resources for this. Thanks for the suggestions. Best regards Liz
