Alpaca ambles

We specialise in relaxed alpaca walks for individuals or small friends and family groups. This gives you a chance to get to know your alpaca and find out why they are so special.

Due to our shared facilities we are reopening walks from 17th May. We are now taking online advance bookings.

Walks are available on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday at 10.30am. Please book in advance. Saturday walks are also available to Ling’s Meadow campsite guests.

We have extended all walk vouchers by at least a year so please don’t worry if you have not yet redeemed your voucher. To book with a voucher please ring us or email.

Come and meet the animals and take a guided walk with an alpaca among the farm fields. The leisurely walk is about a mile long, along grass paths next to our fields. The total visit time is about an hour and a half. This includes a chat about the boys and their fibre and a chance to feed the alpacas.

Our alpaca walks are suitable for adults and children that are 8 years old or over. Children over 8 and under 12 will lead their alpaca with the help of their adult. Children under 16 must be accompanied by at least one adult on the walk.

The walk takes place along green lanes and can be uneven underfoot.

You will have an opportunity to see our fleeces and the products that we make. We also send you away with a sample of alpaca fibre from the alpacas that you meet.

Booking

To give you a relaxed and personal experience we restrict each alpaca walk to one booking, whether that be an individual or a group of friends and family. Group size is limited to six people. Please make sure that there is at least one adult booked for each child aged 8-12yrs in you group as you will share an alpaca.

Charges are per person. To give you flexibility we can decide how many alpacas you would like to walk on the day. We appreciate that some members of the group might be keen to lead an alpaca and some might prefer to accompany. We can walk with a minimum of two alpacas and a maximum of six. If it is a walk for an individual we get to join in and lead the second alpaca.

Adult (16 and over) £20

Child (8-15) £10
