    Detox with the best alpaca!
    My husband and I went alpaca trekking this morning and absolutely loved the whole experience. The couple who own the business are lovely and kind people. Very into what they do which adds to the vibe of the day. Many facts which naturally everyone enjoyed especially us. We walked in front as we were walking Archie who is the lead of his herd. Archie was a poser! Great company and relaxed throughout the walk. After the walk we were able to feed the alpacas and spend time with them and the other alpacas in the herd. The sense we had was they care about the alpacas and they try their best to offer good service. We did like how it’s not over priced making it a nice day out without the financial burden. We have further looked into booking the clamping.
    Hi What a fabulous review Thankyou very much ! Great to meet you and glad you both enjoyed your time with us Hope to see you again Dean and Karen

    Alpaca dream come true!
    An amazing morning spent walking Archie the Alpaca and seeing the rest of the Alpaca gang. It truly was a dream come true as I've been wanting to walk an alpaca for ages and I'm so glad I found this special place at Tickhill. They are all so well cared for and live in a lovely quiet setting. Really enjoyed the walk and Archie was such a good boy, I even got to feed him at the end. Thank you Dean and Karen for special Alpaca memories made!
    Awww Thankyou for such a fab review Really appreciate it Glad you enjoyed it Karen and Dean 😊

    Alpaca Glamping? Alpaca bag
    Fantastic! The atmosphere felt extremely relaxed, and the owners were very helpful and pleasant. And the alpacas!!!- amazing. Our tent was beautiful, clean, and incredible to sleep in on a warm night (beats a hot house any day). The alpacas joined us at our campfire in the evening, alongside the friendliest horse I think I'll ever meet. Deposit was returned in a timely manner and the owners were easy going, knowledgeable, and most importantly helpful. Thank you for a cost effective and incredible experience.
    Thankyou so much for a fabulous review! Glad you had a great stay and hope to see you again Thanks Dean and Karen

    Excellent experience
    Brought our group of rainbows aged 4-7. It was excellent. The girls got to hear about the alpacas, groom & walk them. They also had a lovely time playing on the park. Karen & dean were excellent with the girls & they loved it. Would highly recommend!
    Thankyou ! We had a great time too and Thankyou for coming Hope to see you again Karen and Dean

    Brilliant for older kids!
    Just a wonderful place to spend a few days. The website is clear and has all the info you need. Booking is simple and straight forward. And we were looked after from the second we arrived, without feeling ‘watched’ The glam-tents are bright, clean and tidy! The bed was very comfortable. The BBQ and gas cooker were good quality and easy to use. The hosts were very helpful and suggested a few local places we might like to visit. It was just a marvellous experience from beginning to end and that was before we got to hug alpacas, snuggle the lovely horse and even pet a chicken or 2. We will be back for sure x
    Awww Thankyou so much for such a fabulous review and your lovely comments So glad you had a wonderful experience with us and our animal family Hope to see you again Dean and Karen 😁

    Birthday treat
    Went for and 11 year old animal lovers birthday treat and it couldn’t have been better. Amazing glamping pod and the animals were so friendly and in the field with us. What a lovely thing to sit out at the picnic bench with a drink and have alpacas, chickens and the horse just milling about with us. The owners couldn’t have been more friendly and clear love every animal as family. First class trip and will definitely be returning.
    Thankyou for such an honest and fabulous review ! We do love all our animals very much and are so glad that comes across to our customers Hope to see you again ! Dean and Karen

    5* Alpaca experience
    WOW! Tickhill Alpacas is amazing. I treated my three teen daughters and myself to an alpaca walk. As soon as we arrived we were delighted to see so many alpacas, clean and extremely well cared for. We were greeted by both the owners who were extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. We set off on our walk with about 10 alpacas. The walk was down a nice wooded footpath with lots of bushes for the alpacas to have snacks. The walk takes about an hour, but the alpacas go at their own pace and aren’t rushed, which is lovely. When you return from your walk you then feed your alpaca, you can feed straight from the bucket or by hand. We had mother and daughter alpacas, Splodge and Susie who were beautiful. The owners dogs also joined us in our walk, my daughter fell in love with Tracy the staffie!
    Brilliant review Thankyou ! It’s much appreciated when customers feel they want to tell everyone how fab the experience with us and our alpacas is Thankyou for taking the time to do it ! Hope to see you again Dean ,Karen and the gang 😊

    Unique experience
    Had an amazing time at Tickhill Alpacas! We decide to go to celebrate a special birthday. I was a little nervous as I haven't camped since I was a child. However, the tent was brilliant and had lots of lovely finishing touches. We also had our own portaloo which was clean and well equipped. The alpacas, chickens and horse all roamed freely giving a completely unique experience. In the morning we went for an alpaca walk. Dean and Karen are really friendly and we learned all sorts about alpacas. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.
    Brilliant ! Thankyou so much for an honest and fabulous review Glad you enjoyed your whole experience with us Hope to see you again Dean and Karen 😁

    Glamping with the alpacas
    What an amazing experience, the tent was beautiful , the alpacas , horse and chickens were so friendly . The scenery was perfect , we sat around our camp fire toasting marshmallows and chatting , it was great !!! The toilets are designated to yours own tent which was nice , they were lovely and clean for all those that are porta loo phobics . Karen explained everything prior to our stay about the animals , how to work electrics etc and general rules of stay , I do need to mention that if a bad review comes on here for someone who stayed aug bank holiday , please disregard it … the people who stayed in one of the tents nearby had ripped the tent ? Accidentally ? As accidents happen , however I feel I need to point out their absolutely disgusting behaviour when they reported this , their language was disgusting and completely unnecessary, they disrupted other campers stay by their raised voices and foul mouths , ( children hearing everything ) their own child crying at this , then proceeded to get other people to come and collect them late at night ( as they had been drinking ) … we were so glad they left !!! Please don’t be put off by this , am sure this was an out of the ordinary experience at tickhill alpacas , I just wanted to mention it in case they themselves added a poor review . Highly recommend this place for something a little different and magical x
    Thankyou ! This review is much appreciated due to what happened that night We hope it didn’t spoil your stay too much Thankyou for being so honest Hope to see you again Thanks Karen and Dean

My family have done this before, they didn't tell me I was "doing the walk"
The best conversation I've had in weeks Suzie didn't have much to say, she had to stop now and again to have a nibble on the grass or a lean against me when something got her attention.but I would really recommend this for a family day out, very very relaxing

Thank you

What a lovely morning we have had today.
The owners are so nice, knowledgeable and helpful with the smaller children. We had a lovely walk with our 3 beautiful Alpaca s who were impeccably well behaved, our young grandson who is only 2 thought it was great.
Thank you for a lovely day.

Would highly recommend. Owners can't do enough for you and the alpacas are so fluffy and tame. Also got a massive friendly horse called major and 2 chickens that will let u pick them up. All in all the best camping experience I've had in my life. Definitely worth every penny and more. 👌👌

What a lovely time my friends organised for my 70th surprise birthday treat. An extremely well presented and organised experience , the alpacas are wonderful, cuddly soft and well behaved. They are well cared for and the information is a good insight into the animals . As someone who has always been wary of animals I handfed my lovely Peony at the end, do try it they are so gentle.

Absolutely brill! My wife and I had the pleasure of taking Arthur and Peony for a walk. Dean explained to us all about alpacas such as their origin, habitats, their use as working animals and about their daily lives at Tickhill Alpacas. I would love to go again to try some of the other stuff like glamping or another walk.

Fantastic glamping stay at Tickhill Alpacas. We returned after a great experience walking the alpacas earlier in the year.
From arrival the glamping experience, our first, was fantastic. Dean was super friendly and helpful on welcome. We then had a great time with the alpacas and very friendly horse. Our daughter loved feeding amd playong with the alpacas, they all even gathered around for our BBQ time. We were blessed with glorious weather for our stay which was certainly welcomed.
The glamping was great with the tents well equipped and we managed to sleep reasonably well.
Loom forward to a return visit, thank you
