Please note we are not an open farm and alpaca walks are only available on set dates. 

 

We have now completed our short Summer season (July 4th - September 12th) and over late September and October will be preparing for the Christmas Fair season (COVID allowing) in November.

 

Our next alpaca walks will be in December - the Frosty Christmas walks (16th-19th December) and then six Jolly January walks in January 2021.  SORRY FROSTY WALKS ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED BUT WE ARE OPERATING A WAITING LIST. (It is worth going on this - e.g. we have just had a cancellation for the 19th and are contacting those on the list for the 19th).

 

All these dates are now live for booking on our website

 

Our customer's safety is paramount and we would like to reassure you that we will be operating with additional COVID measures in place, as we have over the Summer period (unless government guidelines change before December).  Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like full details of our additional COVID measures. 

 

  

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.

 

 

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

 

Our Frosty Christmas Walks in December will have both savoury and sweet Christmas fare aswell as the usual refreshments...  hot sausage rolls, chipolatas and nibbles, homemade cakes and bakes, mulled wine and warm mince pies. White and red wine will also be available to buy at £3 /glass.

 

The Jolly January walks include refreshments and homemade cakes and bakes after each walk

These lovely comments are from some of visitors .....

 

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.

  • Children are welcome 10 years and above. They can share an alpaca with an adult but the accompanying adult must be 16 years or above. Note you cannot book 1 person, 1 alpaca option for a child under 16 yrs.
  • Children accompanying an adult (sharing an alpaca) must be 10 yrs and over.
  • Note if you book just 1 adult 1 alpaca option we assume you will be attending alone. If it is only you who wants to do the walk and your partner isn't interested then you book the shared option and you do all the walking with our alpaca
  • If you come with someone who has not booked, they should either drop you off and return later or wait in the car. There is no waiting area on site for those who have not booked.
  • There is no discount on the two person price if the child is one of the pair

  • On booking you will receive confirmation by email within 48 hrs. Approx 5-7 days before the event you will receive the detailed programme and info about what to wear and what to expect.
  • Date changes cost £10 per booking up to 14 days before the date of your walk (payable on the day of your walk). It is not feasible to change to another date within 14 days of your walk.
  • Cancellation 14 or more days prior to the event 50% refund. Within 14 days no refund.
  • If some or all of your group do not attend on the day there are no refunds.
  • Please note the duration of the alpaca walk is approx. 45 to 50 minutes on local footpaths and bridleways with some uneven ground. The whole event is 2-2.25hrs. if you are a slow walker, unsteady on your feet or have an injury which impacts on your walking ability, then the walk will not be suitable. 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. You must be confident that you have the strength to hold the alpaca if he suddenly pulls forward during the walk.
  • 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.
