Our popular Up Close Experience is not available to book online in the winter months. From 1st November 2023 through to 28th February 2024 we can take group bookings of 4 or more people, arranged by email via firstname.lastname@example.org.

Take a wander around the paddocks and learn about why alpacas are special! A map and quiz is available from the café for £1. The walk will take around 30 to 45 minutes to complete, depending on how fast you walk and how much stopping and alpaca watching you do! The route is mostly on grass so suitable footwear is required (especially in the winter months). There is no need to book prior to visiting if you just want to have a wander and enjoy something delicious from our café.
Get hands on with our lovely alpacas! Depending on what you are comfortable with, you can learn how to hold an alpaca; do basic health checks; look closely and feel for yourself the amazing fibre; feed them out of scoops/your hand; ask any questions you might have about alpacas and of course get some fun photos!
From 1st November 2023 through to 28th February 2024 we can take group bookings of 4 or more people, arranged by email via email@example.com.

Alpacas are very special animals. They are intelligent, inquisitive and gentle herd animals and each one has an individual personality. However it is their fibre, known simply as "alpaca" that is the really special thing about them! In this experience, you will look closely at alpaca fibre on the animal and at some sheared fleeces (off the alpaca). Learn about the variables that affect the quality of alpaca yarn and why alpaca fibre is so soft and luxurious! Crafters in particular will enjoy this session.
This experience takes around 45 to 50 minutes and is ideal to combine with a craft workshop. The session costs £15 per adult and £9 per child (8 to 15yrs old). This experience is not recommended for younger children.
The Alpaca Fibre Experience can form the basis of a longer educational session for school age children. Please get in touch to discuss your age group, group size, learning objectives and time constraints.
