My 7 year old Granddaughter and myself enjoyed a lovely afternoon; walking the Alpacas with our tour guide Abbie, who was brilliant, followed by a wonderful afternoon tea. I would recommend it.

Really enjoyed the experience of walking with these gentle animals - they were very comical. We were well-looked after by staff. I guess that this is a growing business that will be more stream-lined in years to come

Had a fabulous day out with afternoon tea in the chilli bean cafe. Alpacas were so cute and cuddly and it was a really nice walk. The team were very knowledgeable and friendly. Afternoon tea was huge but delicious. Great day out and fairly inexpensive

Wonderful experience, all the alpacas we very well behaved. The staff were lovely. Great for any animal lover. It’s so fun to see all their individual personalities. My alpaca Liberty was a bit more on the stubborn side but he walked very well and behaved...More

Really enjoyed walking with the alpacas. Well organised and knowledgeable guide. The only thing I would say is that the free coffee and cordial was disappointing. It wouldn’t kill them to use the same stuff they use in the restaurant or just not offer it.
