Was an amazing experience, we loved walking our llamas! The staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and clearly loved and cared very much for the 94 llamas and alpacas that lived in the beautiful surrounding landscape. I would highly recommend this experience and would love to do it all again.

A fun and entertaining few hours with some lovely animals. My 10 yo daughter and I went for the Scenic Farm Trek and we both loved it. The staff who ran it know an awful lot about camelids and the few that we got to meet were just beautiful. The initial talk was very informative and interesting. As the staff know the animals so well they think carefully to match you to your cuddly walking partner. The backdrop for the walk is simply stunning with amazing views across the valley. Well worth a visit.

The staff are incredibly knowledgeable of the animals they present to you and the animals themselves are incredibly well looked after and very clearly loved. The location is great and honestly I look forward to going back and doing a longer trek. Was a great taster experience.

We did the half day trek to celebrate my husband's birthday. We loved it!
It was so well organised from the allocated parking slot to the clear labelling of our picnic items (which was delicious) The staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic and clearly adore the llamas and alpacas.
We are hoping we can do it again one day and we'll definitely recommend to our friends

The animals are nice. It is over priced and drawn out, becoming tiresome from their incessant talking of almost 2hours before trek even starts. The Portacabin Party Room is shambolic, cold. Once in a lifetime experience.certainly.

Thank you for taking the time to review and offer your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed our animals, but its a shame you felt the talk was tiresome. The talk (of approx. 45 min to 1 hour), is all part of the experience that we offer and explained on our information prior to booking. Our team are very dedicated to animal welfare and we are passionate about sharing our knowledge and fun facts all about the animals before the treks go out. This is for two reasons, mainly so our customers gain some insight into these amazing animals and feel at ease with them so they can fully enjoy their trek. Also we like to ensure our animals get to know the group a little, before the trek leaves, so this puts the animals at ease too. The talks are detailed, but they are fun and we have such positive feedback about them, generally customers love to learn and engage with our team and the animals before the trek leaves. I am sorry you felt the portacabin was disappointing, we have invested in the decoration and made it feel like a taste of Peru, feedback has been very positive as customers love to see all the photos and Peruvian themes it offers. However it is not constantly heated as we only require it if the weather is wet, it would be a waste of energy to have it constantly heated and we like to ensure we are environmentally friendly. We are happy for customers to use it when its wet, so at least everyone has an area where they can keep dry for their drinks and cakes after the treks, as opposed to sitting outdoors. I am sorry you felt it was cold, but I am sure you will agree it was at least dry. We will however look into improving the heat source in the portacabin. We are disappointed that you felt your experience overpriced. We have strived to keep our prices as low as possible and find we are very reasonable in comparison to other experiences. Our running costs are extensive and increasing all the time, with animal feed and veterinary bills, provision and running of the facilities and land to maintain excellent animal welfare. We also have to cover our licence fees, insurance and many other hidden costs of running a farm along with our professional skilled team of staff, therefore we can not provide the experiences and treks any cheaper. We are also vat registered so all this has to be taken into account within our prices. Thank you again for your review, we feel your star rating is harsh considering the hard work and dedication we put into running running our enterprise, but we do respond to all feedback and will continue to strive to improve.

We had a fantastic day yesterday on the half day trek through some beautiful scenery .
The staff were so knowledgeable & informative , there passion & love for all the animals shone though .
We were paired with Olly such a serious , no nonsense llama that led us on the trek ! keeping us right at every turn ,who rewarded us handsomely for trekking so well with lots of cuddles at the end . Sadly we had to say goodbye to Olly however the trek was followed by an delicious picnic with plenty of welcome hot tea .
Amazing experience , we will never forget and would thoroughly recommend .

A must do activity!! We loved it from start to finish , the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and we even had the lady who owns it on our trek and she was lovely too. The llamas were very cute and affectionate and every single one had its own personality. Will definitely be back to do it again. We didn't want to leave when the trek finished or say bye to our llamas Mike and Lloyd. But we did purchase key rings with them on to remember our experience. To top it off the weather was lovely 🦙🌞 Emily and claire

A huge Thank You to Jess and Caroline for a wonderful Birthday Trek with the adorable Rupert, who was a perfect gentleman and didn't spit once! Cannot fault this experience - from initial contact, the organisation, booking etc. We had a wonderful afternoon - even the weather was smiling as this was Feb 15th and during the series of storms. Extremely well run - happy animals and visitors. Would definitely recommend and return. Just wear appropriate clothing and footwear - which we did and enjoy this amazing experience. Don't forget to ask about the options as there seem to be different trips to suite all ages and requirements. We were a family group, all adults but Tripadvisor doesn't give you this option in their list, so had to opt for family of teens. Jess certainly knows these lovely creatures inside out - so it was interesting, educational and fun. The hot drinks and cakes were very welcome at the end of this Winter trek. All round, a great time. Thanks so much.

What a fabulous morning, we were a bit apprehensive as to how the Alpacas and Llamas would be, but they were lovely, calming, funny, quirky and very beautiful animals which were full of characters.

Great Staff to tell us all about them, Beth was our guide for the morning and she was very informative and we could see and very much feel her love and passion for the Alpacas and Llamas. Beth put us very much a ease and that made the experience all worth while and pleasurable.

We had a great time and our boys loved it, we took the Alpaca and Llamas for a trek which was very cool, and the place itself is stunning also to take in as you go on the walk.

Very much recommend this experience it's great fun and different ha ha
