About the Owner
Chris and Vicki have lived in the village for the last 18 years and have run the farm all that time. The alpacas arrived in 2000 and are an integral part of the farm as a business. We have approximately 100 alpacas and 4 llamas on the farm all of whom are halter trained and we also offer alpaca walking as an optional extra.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Envious of anyone with the opportunity to stay here!"
My partner and I enjoyed a fantastic stay over Christmas and New Year.
The lodge is really delightful; bright, well-equipped, modern and very comfortable. Huge shower, comfy bed.
Vicky and Chris couldn't have been better hosts, even lending me wellies and sending back a DVD I'd forgotten.
The Alpaca farm is a real novelty, it's great to see the animals. My daughter had a great time mucking out. Beautiful countryside too.
Absolutely gorgeous, highly recommended.

- Notes on accommodation: The Lodge comfortable sleeps two in a large king size double bedroom with floor to ceiling wardrobes and ample storage. There is a sofa bed in the sitting room for occasional use. Outside: The Lodge is in the middle of a working alpaca farm. You will be surrounded by our fields which are in Higher Level Stewardship. This means we don't use fertilisers and pesticides and our fields abound with wildlife. The alpacas graze fields right up to the Lodge although we ask that you enter the fields under supervision. We offer alpaca walking on the farm which can also be booked as a great walk in its own right or as an introduction to alpacas and our farm.
