alpaca walking!! why not take a leisurely walk in the weardale valley with our beautiful, relaxing alpacas. our walks usually take an hour at the end of which we will return to the farm to feed your new friend and meet the rest of our herd with opportunity to take lots of photos. so come along and see us soon, whatever your needs I'm sure we can accommodate you. Please email or telephone to book your walk.
