The animals are really cute and inquisitive but placid. The owner was very welcoming and very informative - we learnt a lot. Taking the animals for a walk was pleasant enough and there were some nice items in shop. A most enjoyable visit.

We have one rate, £24, for each person who attends our Alpaca Experience. We do not have a guest facility on this. I hope that helps.
