Booked this for my 12 year old niece and 78 year old mother, they LOVED it! The owner engaged you with her genuine passion, skill and understanding of her profession and these wonderful, incredibly friendly animals.
My advice - go, just go and enjoy, it's a real bit of magic!

My daughter bought a gift voucher for Mothers day and today we spent a lovely afternoon with these beautiful animals. Liz was fantastic with the Alpacas and very knowledgeable. Myself my daughter and my husband have not stopped smiling and we have even been pricing up a small herd for ourselves haha ! Liz also runs a lovely shop selling products made from the Alpacas beautiful fleeces, and I am very pleased with my hand knitted shawl !
We would highly recommend this experience, and the gift vouchers make excellent presents!

We visited Butlers farm alpacas today as an early fathers day present. 3 of us, 1 was 15.....result just to get him "outdoors" away from wifi.....but he loved it. He has now got lots of alpaca selfies on facebook, snapchat, instagram........etc.......so not completely away from tech!!!! A great experience, despite drizzle. Incredible animals. They are not like llamas...no spitting....very docile, really easy to walk. We spent a good 2.5 hours there in total. We got to pet, feed, walk and take loads of photos. Liz was very informative and interesting. Finished our experience with a visit to their shop for souvenirs, a lovely coffee/biccies and a toilet stop.
A really enjoyable experience with these sooooooo cute animals (eye lashes to die for!!). And a baby was born just minutes before our arrival, tiny with gangly legs, icing on the cake. GO!

I visited the alpaca farm today with my boyfriend. We are both 17 and absolutely loved the whole experience. We got to know a little bit about the alpacas e.g. where they originate from etc, we then got to choose our alpacas to walk. They were a little feisty but were so kind and lovely animals. We took the alpacas on a walk around some fields and got to feed them during the walk. After the walk, we got to go to the gift shop and see the beautiful toys/clothes made from alpaca fur. I definitely recommend this experience, we both thought it was an amazing day out.
