Overview
More
We are a family ran clothing and accessories shop specialising in alpaca. All of our alpaca produce is imported from Peru, the origin of the Alpaca. There is a wide range of both ladies and men's alpaca knitwear, coats, accessories, slippers and socks, a selection of handmade children's wear and not to mention beautiful alpaca teddies and many more unique gift ideas. We also offer a small luxurious home ware range including throws, alpaca filled pillows and duvets and exquisite fur rugs. Branching out beyond the exclusive range of alpaca goods, we now offer a little something for everyone. You can find handbags, jewellery, wallets, purses and more. You can also find one of the biggest ranges of BRAX FEEL GOOD which includes specialist trousers, jeans and everyday wear for both men and women. You can relax in our small tearoom where we offer Lakeland tea, coffee and other refreshments along with yummy homemade cakes. After having up to 60 alpacas at one time, Joy has now stopped breeding but we still have a small herd of alpacas and 2 miniature donkeys which you are more than welcome to go and view in their paddock. There is also another family business you can visit on site, G&S Timber. Find expert advice, tools and machinery, European and North American hardwoods and much more.

Limited menu, but really great place to sit and chill with a fresh scone and a lovely pot of tea. Didn't do the Alpaca viewing this time as have done it before, but well worth doing with the family.

We have had some nice coffee here on our last two visits. The clothes are nice, but out of our price range. We would have walked our dog, but who wants to pay to walk a 100 yards, when you might see some animals?More
