Meet our alpacas, experiences their characters, learn how to care for them, or invite them to your event.
In the words of our guests....
"Alpacas may look a bit like a long necked sheep, a tall wooly goat or even a sheep crossed with a horse but having met them today, they're a whole entire vibe of their own 😀 I get the hype now! They have a charming inquisitiveness about them, they're full of character and if you're lucky enough to get chosen for a stroke, their wool is incredibly soft. Listen out for the snuffly noises they make whilst they potter around too. Fabulous animals."
All of our alpaca walk bookings are private and by appointment only. Why? Well, it means we can create 100% bespoke sessions for you and your group.
Our 1 hour sessions give you the chance to learn a little bit about alpacas before taking a leisurely walk through our fields, just outside Ashbourne Derbyshire. Alpaca walks will make for an unforgettable experience for all the family with plenty of opportunities for that perfect photo so you can remember the day forever.
Our alpaca walking experiences include a chance to meet all of our 13 alpacas, feed our female alpacas and ask questions, before taking our boys for a walk through the fields.
We are conveniently positioned almost equal distance between Ashbourne, Derby, Carsington and Belper, making a visit to meet our herd a great addition to a day out or an evening treat.
Keeping you safe during your visit
As well as making sure you enjoy your time with us and our herd of alpacas, it is equally important that you are safe.
Please take a few moment to look at the information below to make sure you understand the information.
Are alpacas safe?
Alpacas are generally very calm animals during the walk. The fields we use for our experiences are the fields they call home so there shouldn't be any surprises for them.
But, please be aware they are animals and so do not always follow the script so may occasionally jump if something scares them.
What should we wear?
All of our experiences take place outdoors so please dress appropriately for the great British summer and walking in a field.
That means bring a jacket and wear shoes you can walk around a grassy, lumpy field (not flip flops!).
You can not use an umbrella during your experience.
Very flappy clothing is also not advised.
Can I hug your alpacas?
Can I bring ...
Whilst alpacas are awesomely soft and fluffy, they do not like to be hugged the way teddy bear would.
So as to not spook them it is best to move calmly
