Each Amble is done on a personal basis, which means that the amble can be tailored to your needs and timings.
The alpacas are
rotated so the walks will consist of either 2 or 3 animals. Alpacas like the
company of other alpacas therefore there needs to be a minimum of 2 alpacas per
Usually it is 1 adult with 1 Alpaca, but in certain circumstances 2 adults can share an alpaca.
The walks are
unsuitable for children under 8.
Children between 8 and 16 must share an Alpaca with an adult.
Due to the uneven
terrain, walks are not suitable for people with walking/mobility issues and we
therefore cannot authorise wheelchairs; pushchairs or walking aids. Please contact me to arrange an alternative to meet your needs.
No dogs allowed.
The route does
vary depending on the farming calendar, but each walk will include a snack time
(for the Alpacas); plenty of photo opportunities and time by the Lake as the
boys sometimes like a paddle.
The time it will
take to do the walk varies as everything is done at Alpaca pace.
welfare/health and safety reasons the walks are weather dependant and may have
to be cancelled/re-arranged in poor weather/extreme heat.
You need to bring
appropriate clothing eg waterproof/warm clothing/suncream etc depending on the
weather. Sturdy footwear with enclosed toes is always essential.
expect the unexpected, bring patience, a camera, and a good sense of humour.
