Fantastic outing this afternoon to see the farm. Really great for families with young children, our 18 month old loved all the animals. Worth a stop in!

The Alpaca farm had a vast collection of animals, even though the weather was a little misty, we enjoy it immensely. They also had a lot of things made from the Alpaca wool, which was very unique.

Had a lovely visit here. The owner was very passionate and informative about Alpacas, and we learnt a lot about them and Lamas. It was also a novelty to lead "Elly" the Alpaca around while on the tour. The owner advised us that October is...More
