    Fantastic alpaca experience
    We loved our alpaca experience! Jayne is a wonderful host, telling us all about her alpacas before we took them for a walk. We also got to feed them and meet the pygmy goats before needle felting our own wee alpaca. A great way to spend a morning for adults as well as children. Highly recommended!

    Fantastic alpaca trekking experience
    Had the most amazing experience alpaca trekking today. A fantastic educational experience that was so relaxed and enjoyable. We even had the privilege of meeting 6 day old baby Elvis. The alpacas are absolutely amazing and very happy and sociable when being walked and petted by the visitors. A few of them ( mum annd daughter) even put on a little show by bouncing around the field… it was brilliant to see. Jayne was an excellent host, teaching us all about alpacas and giving sound advice while we were trekking with them. The experience ended with feeding the alpacas then making a needle felt alpaca to take home. What a lovely little souvenir. Absolutely amazing value for money at only £20 per person with gift vouchers available . There’s a small gift shop with some cute little alpaca themed gifts at very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend and would go back again! Thanks for a great time.

    Excellent, a must visit for all the family.
    Absolutely loved my visit here! Jayne really was the best host and totally made the experience what it was. Obviously the gorgeous alpacas were the stars of the show but without Jayne it wouldn’t be what it was. She’s so informative, happy to answer any questions and in general a great person to chat to! A very relaxed and comfortable setting. We got to walk our own alpaca, feed them, hug some, and see a little baby! I’m also pretty positive I saw a pregnant belly moving which is amazing! Then we got to see and pet the goats, following by needle felting some alpaca fur which was such a great keepsake. All for £20 which was great value for money. Definitely coming back with the family asap. A hidden gem and worth a visit! Thank you so much ♥️

Such an amazing day out. Alpacas were so much fun. My daughter walked with the help of my mum and managed absolutely fine. The hill is a little steep for those with mobility issues. Feeding the alpacas was a great laugh. We then had a look at the goats and the chickens. Have tried to upload photos but iPhone file format is incorrect :/

Had an absolutely brilliant morning at the alpaca trekking today. Jayne was an incredible host and was very knowledgeable and passionate about all things alpaca. I got to trek Forever and I absolutely fell in love with her, I could have taken her home with me. We got to feed the alpacas too and see the chickens and also got to go give the pygmy goats a wee clap which was lovely. All the animals look so happy and healthy. The wee workshop afterwards to make a little take home alpaca with their wool is brilliant and great fun. Thanks so much for a fabulous time, we would recommend this to anyone 😀

Absolutely great experience!

Highly recommended this to people wanting something different to do, the kind owner was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Love seeing the goats, chickens and obsessive the alpaca!

Experience started with meeting and getting to pet the alpacas, then picking out what one to walk and walking them. After that we got to feed the alpacas and pet the goats. Then a stop in the craft shed to make a needle fell alpaca and have a look at the gift shop.
