Candleford Cottage

A little slice of the Peak District, and a place where you can experience something different.


Experiences on offer

Alpaca experiences tailored to you; alpaca walks, hands on events or even alpacas as part of your wedding reception entertainment.

Derbyshire Honey from our hives kept here at Candleford Cottage.

If you are looking for something a little bit different, we can help with that. 

Here at Candleford Cottage we want to give you the chance to build memories and experience something different. Right now that means giving you the chance to meet our alpacas through walks and experiences or  having them as extra special guests at your events. Alpacas are such curious and fascinating creatures they are sure to brighten your day.
