    Awesome experience
    I bought a voucher as a gift for my Mum for Christmas. Booking was easy via the website and we had such a wonderful time. The animals are clearly loved and happy. We enjoyed a lovely walk with Ste explaining lots of things about alpacas and llamas. Jack and Perry were very well behaved and all the animals have lovely quirks that were explained to us. The especially lovely part was that Ste and Laura take photos of your group while you walk and send them on to you afterwards. Thank you so much for a fab experience, we will be visiting again. Highly recommend.

    Amazing visit!
    What an experience! I wasn’t planning on visiting and stumbled across them on my walks today. The owners were both so welcoming and ensured that I could join the walks. The experience let you get up and close with the Lamas and Alpacas, feed them, walk them and attempt to stroke them … but we know they don’t like being touched! There was plenty of feed to get up and close (no extra cost) and the day was not rushed, plenty of time to ask questioned and such a relaxed experience. From someone who has visited many farms, volunteer centres and has a love for animals there is always a concern that animal are being used for money purposes! But 100% not here, they have limited opening hours (for the right reasons) and they do it because they have so much care for the animals and all money goes towards vet bills and care and this is what makes this place so special! I live 7 hours away but if I was closer I would 100% be here every weekend. Little bonus they take pictures for you (free of charge) and send them over so you can just enjoy your time with the animals and be in the moment. Thank you!

    Alpaca and Llama experience - top quality - definitely worth the money!
    The llamas and alpacas are beautiful creatures. Steve and Laura were lovely, really knowledgeable and caring. I got to walk the Llama Cosmos and my sister had Perry the Alpaca both very well behaved. After the group walk we were able to meet the other male and female alpacas and llamas and we had a little bag of grass and hay pellets to feed to the animals. Highly recommended would go and do it again. Laura makes various items with the wool and sells them in there little shop on site.

    Great experience day in a great setting with views over Morecambe Bay.
    Excellent visit with my partner- had bought it as a birthday gift for them. We had been booked for the day before but bad weather meant it had to be rearranged for the next day. We were pleased about this as much better day. Ste and Laura who run the experience kept us informed and put everyone at ease concerning how to interact with the animals. They paired people with animals that were suitable to their temperament. We were introduced to the male alpacas and llamas then went for a short walk around an adjacent paddock. The field was gently sloping and easy to negotiate. We then returned to the start point then went to meet the females and younger alpacas. Ste took photos as we went round and forwarded them on via WhatsApp. The animals were easy to handle. There were approximately 15 people of mixed ages visiting at the same time but the numbers were more than usual due to rescheduling from the day before. No refreshments on site but we visited the Ship Inn in Bardsea village beforehand for lunch (no more than 10 minute journey). We have been on two other similar experiences in the past in other locations, can honestly say this was the best so far.

    Fabulous experience
    We had a fabulous time - the owners are so friendly, the whole experience was wonderful and great fun. We were paired with Bruno the Llama and Mario the Alpaca and had so many laughs. It was the highlight of our holiday and thoroughly recommend.

    Walking with the alpacas and llamas.
    From start to finish it was amazing. Ste & Laura were very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about their llamas and alpacas, they were more than happy to answer any questions we had. The walk was alot of fun, we each had an alpaca or llama to walk and feed and we could interact up close to all the others. It was lovely and clean and it was very clear they love them all as they were all very well taken care of. I would highly recommend visiting here, it was something different to do and exciting to be amongst them all. They were very placid and all had very different characters which Ste planned carefully which animal would be most suitable to each person's personality. I thought this was a lovely touch. Although he gave Me one with extremely big teeth and a moustache.. hahaha. Get yourselves there, you won't be disappointed, you can even purchase some gorgeous handmade items that Laura had made from the fleece. 10/10 from both of us.

    Great Experience
    What a fantastic experience this was, total wildcard we booked up and hit on with the weather. Turned up not quite sure what to expect but it was a great way to spend a couple of hours and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The animals are beautiful and you can tell how well they are looked after and cared for. Recommend to anyone to go

Our group had an absolutely fantastic time, were looked after and educated brilliantly, you could clearly see and experience the love that the people running the location have for the animals who were well taken care of, enriched and all had their own unique personalities, we had a lovely walk around the grounds. Thanks for a great day!

Done the alpaca and llama experience today amazing experience Ste and Laura were fantastic hosts, learned so much about the animals they are obviously very passionate about what they do, you can tell the animals are very well cared for. Not only did we get to walk them we got to meet all the alpacas and llamas, Ste also took lots of photos of each individual group and sent the photos on to us at no extra charge. I would certainly recommend this for a fun day out.

What a lovely afternoon, Steve and Laura are warm and welcoming and are obviously completely smitten with these lovely animals.
The llamas and alpacas are so sweet - gentle, beautiful and funny.
We were in a group with all ages and everyone enjoyed it.
It’s a gorgeous setting as well.
Definitely recommend this!

Visited today. Was great and we loved every minute of it. Steve and Laura were brilliant and you can tell how much they care about the animals and what they do. Grandson loved it that much we will be going again very soon. Nice and relaxing walk around site and a meet and greet with the llamas and alpacas. It's a must visit.

We had a wonderful day with Ste, Laura and the alpacas and llamas. The booking process was really easy and when we arrived we each took an animal for a walk around the beautiful grounds with Ste as our guide. Ste is so enthusiastic and knowledgable about the animals, and we learnt a lot about them all. The animals are all very well looked after and Ste and Laura clearly adore all of their herd and know each one by name . After the walk we got to spend time with the rest of the animals, giving them some treats and seeing the newborns, which was a real highlight.

We would highly recommend anyone in the area to give Bardsea a visit, such a lovely, family run business where the animals are very much at the heart.
