The animals are really cute and inquisitive but placid. The owner was very welcoming and very informative - we learnt a lot. Taking the animals for a walk was pleasant enough and there were some nice items in shop. A most enjoyable visit.

Went on one of the alpaca experiences. Very informative and helpful host. You spend lots of time with the alpacas and even get to walk them round the field.
