What a lovely family small holding. A beautiful, quiet location with a lovely walk around the fields. We had the chance to stroke the adorable baby Pygmy Goats, and even got to meet a baby alpaca whilst having a chat to one of the keepers. Well worth a visit.

We came upon this super farm quite by accident on our way back to Yarmouth to catch afternoon ferry. What a little gem, alpacas, llamas, (both with babies) goats, kids, pigs, chickens, sheep and horses. Well set out with free parking. A brilliant place to spend a few hours with your children, or as in our case just the two... More

With my parents living not far away I have driven past the entrance to this place more times than I can count but have never previously visited. I now really wish I had done so sooner: it's a wonderful place. I spent an hour or so just wandering around, admiring the llamas and alpacas (the baby alpacas chasing each other... More

We had a great time here and particularly enjoyed the short walk with Alpacas (Winston and Widget) hosted by the wonderful Holly who told us everything we needed to know about the alpacas and other animals (lamas, goats and many types of chicken). We also enjoyed walking around the farm fields and taking in the views. The coffee was brilliant!... More

Me and my mother had an absolutely fantastic time here. We took a 40 minute walk with 2 Llamas around the lovely countryside, the animals were very easy to lead and very sweet - incredibly soft too! Our tour guide (who's name has escaped me) was very passionate about the animals/her job was able to answer any questions we had... More

This place was an absolute delight for any animal lover. The main feature is the Alpacas but there were also pigs, donkeys, chickens, ducks and so on. You can get close to all of the animals but may be warned against putting fingers too close! We also had coffee in the cafe with a parrot chatting away in the background.... More

I would recommend a visit to West Wight Alpacas when you are in the Yarmouth area. The café has an appetising selection of hot food a freshly cooked pizzas and delicious cakes. The staff are very helpful and friendly. You do not need to visit the Alpacas to park and eat at the café Bistro, but I am sure that... More

My fiancé and I came here a few years ago and loved it - it has got even better since! As a couple we love animals so coming back to the island warranted a visit, of course.

We had not pre-booked so were unable to do the trek. However, staff in the café were extremely friendly and helpful (to the point that my 10 year old son commented on how lovely they were). A walk round the farm lifts the spirits and we will come back to book the trek as it looked brilliant. Phenomenal cake too!!!!!
