Overview

Advance Booking Required : We are a working Alpaca Farm and run Alpaca Treks throughout the year subject to the Great British Weather! We can tailor a trek to suit and can arrange special Treks and Visits - Just ask and we'll see what we can do! Book as far in advance as you can as we do get busy at weekends and during holiday periods try to have some alternate dates in mind. Please remember that both weather and animals can be unpredictable and as such we may need to cancel and rearrange at short notice.
