We offer a fabulous Alpaca walking experience in the East Hertfordshire countryside, a fantastic present or a treat for yourself. A really different experience for that animal/alpaca mad friend or relative. 

There are two options....you can have your own alpaca for the entirety of the walk OR share an alpaca with a friend – you and your friend can take turns leading your alpaca during the walk.  Note: the age limit for walking our alpacas is 10 years. Children aged 10-15 years must walk with an adult i,e, they must choose the sharing option.

 

Our Spring/Summer season 2020 starts in April and continues until September - see dates summary below.

 

If you have an appetite at the end of the walk!

You can either choose a walk with refreshments and biscuits to finish or you can complete a truly memorable walk with a homemade cream tea (home made cakes also included).

NEW FOR 2020- many of you are celebrating a special occasion/birthday ...to make your time at Yew Tree extra special we have planned four SPARKLING CREAM TEA WALKS in June and July.  These teas include, in addition to the our homemade cream tea , up to two glasses of prosecco or sparkling non alcholic beverage and fresh strawberries & cream.

Hi Penny & Steven, just a quick note to say thank you both for a truly enjoyable afternoon we both had with you both, all the alpacas and of course Isaacs. I have wanted a walk with them for years and it was well worth waiting for. We very much want to come again so keeping my fingers crossed.
Maggi, Hitchin

 

 

I just wanted to say a big thank you for this morning, my son had a brilliant time, we all enjoyed it. Your alpacas are lovely animals all with their own characters! I can see why you keep them. I'm sure we will be back at some point.
Lisa, Welwyn

 

What an absolutely brilliant experience. We both enjoyed it very much and hope to return to do another walk with you soon.

You must also be able to use both hands to hold the lead rope when walking your alpaca, if you cannot do this then the alpaca walk is not suitable for you.
  • Alpacas can be scared or surprised by sudden sounds/movement this means that it is possible your alpaca may suddenly pull or shy during the walk. This is not common/usual but it is possible.

  • If you are not sure then please telephone us and we will advise whether the walk is suitable or rather our alpaca adventure may be more suitable.

I call these my magic socks.  I wear them whenever I need extra comfort because they always seem to be the right temperature and feel so nice and soft on my feet.  I was given the damson and green contrast day socks but I'll definitely be getting more as sure-fire gifts for family members and myself.  They feel lovely!
