Photography

Bad Weather

Spectators / Taxi Drivers

We try to take photos of you and your alpaca on the walk, we know it is not easy taking photos of yourself whilst walking and leading an alpaca.  We post them on our Facebook page under "Photos" & "Albums" with the title as the date of your walk.   We may also use the photos on our Facebook page, our website or to promote our activities or for media and other publicity purposes.  By booking with us we will trust this is accepted by you and all party members unless a member of staff is notified on the day prior to the walk or you contact us in advance. 
We do walk in rain but if the weather forecast is for severe weather or any unforeseen circumstances then an alternative walk will be offered to you. 

We will always contact you if we need to re arrange due to very bad weather.

It is very rare we postpone or cancel due to bad weather so unless we have contacted to re arrange please attend your Experience as booked.
Please ensure you pre book Spectator tickets if you wish to invite friends along with you on the walk.  Numbers are restricted and unexpected people may not be able to accompany you. 
Please do not bring any non paying guests as we are not insured to leave them on site when we go off around the farm walking. We are unable to let Drivers or Taxi Drivers stay on the farm unaccompanied even if sat in their cars.  We are very sorry but this is a requirement on our insurance.  This is a working farm. 

Staying SAFE on your visit

Staying Safe continued

Gift Voucher Purchase/Redeemption


Animals are lovely and messing about in the countryside is fun but you should be aware that animals commonly carry bugs that can be passed on to humans and can cause illness. This can happen through touching animals, surfaces such as fences, gates, the ground – even your shoes.
Thorough hand washing is the best way to prevent infection. Please ensure that children are properly supervised and that you all wash your hands:
Often throughout your visit
Immediately after contact with animals
After visiting the toilet
Before eating and drinking

Washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water after you have had contact with animals will reduce the risk of infection.  For more information please see the notice on entry to the alpaca area "HM Government- Avoiding infection on farm visits" .  This document can also be downloaded directly from our website.

Please highlight the importance to children not to put their fingers in their mouths or around their faces during a farm visit. 


Please do not eat or drink in the animal areas.  Please ensure children do not
kiss the animals to reduce risk of possible infection.

Once you have purchased a Gift Voucher you will receive a booking confirmation email and your eVoucher.  You will need the Gift Voucher code to redeem the Gift Voucher.

Gift Vouchers need to be used before the expiry date (which is printed on them) and before we close for Winter if the Voucher continues to run after we are closed but expires before we open in the following year.

Pregnant Ladies & Your Health/Nut Allergies

Footwear & Bio security

We ask that Pregnant Ladies do not to attend our Alpaca Walking Experience due to the risks of being knocked or pulled over by an alpaca and the risks of Toxoplasmosis. 

The manufacturers of our alpaca feed cannot guarantee the alpaca feed is
made in a nut free environment.  Hand feeding the alpacas is part of the experience and we cannot be held responsible for someone visiting the farm and coming
into contact with nuts.



Please wear Wellington Boots or sturdy waterproof walking footwear that can be washed/disinfected to minimize risk of disease spread to our alpacas on footwear. 

We ask you to dip your boots in a disinfectant foot wash on entry to the alpaca areas.  

Sun hats/cream or rain coats/preferably long trousers etc are advisable weather dependent.  No open toe sandals or flip-flops.

COMING SOON
New "Alpaca Encounter Experience"

Planned to be available Summer time

As soon as we have the full details we will add them to our website along with prices and available dates.

Watch this space.

Great for people who want to visit but not walk an alpaca.

A great new experience for those who want to visit the farm but do not wish to walk an alpaca. Great for young and old and if you are not physically able to do the Alpaca Walking.

This Experience is still being put together and we expect to have a few trial days in June 2018 to see if it is something people would be interested in.  It would be in small to medium size groups and we think it would take place on a Saturday afternoon after Alpaca Walking and would include something like the following:

🎈Meet the whole herd in their paddocks and any babies, short talk on alpacas (in the paddock area not a classroom situation) with questions and answers aimed at all ages keeping it fun and informative.

🎈 Get up close and hand feed the alpacas

🎈 Selfie/photo opportunities

🎈 Chance to browse our handmade alpaca gifts and see raw fleece from our alpacas.

🎈Hot or cold drink with biscuits

🎈 Opportunity to sit and admire these beautiful alpacas grazing in the fields.

This experience may also be suitable for Private Group Bookings.
