DUE TO THE RECENT BAD WEATHER WE HAVE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED OUR ALPACA EXPERIENCES.
WE WILL BE BACK SOON WITH DETAILS OF OUR 'WINTER ALPACA EXPERIENCE'
Patou Snow Goose at the 'Alpaca Viewpoint' keeping a eye on the rest of the herd.
Escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and join us here at Patou Alpacas for a relaxing walk around the perimeter of the farm.
(Please note that this is an unaccompanied walk, you will not be walking with an alpaca).
See the alpacas grazing, the babies (cria) feeding or charging around and take as many pictures as you like. The circuit is about 800m long with a fairly steep climb to finish, but take your time and enjoy the views of over 50 alpacas on the edge of the Blackdown Hills.
Towards the end of the walk you will come into the main alpaca field with me and we walk amongst the main female and cria (baby) group whilst I introduce you to them all (yes, they all have names). We will spend time amongst them seeing how gentle and calm they are whilst going about their daily business of grazing, sun bathing or rolling in their dust baths.
Once you have completed your walk you are welcome to enjoy your own private picnic at our ‘Alpaca Viewpoint’ (We only have one group visiting per day).
From this panoramic spot looking out westwards towards Exmoor and the Quantocks you can continue to watch the rest of the Patou herd.
The whole experience is out in the fresh air, there are no gates to handle and the picnic table and benches are disinfected after each use.
This relaxing and uplifting experience lasts for up to 2 hours. The walk is unaccompanied but we will be here to answer as many questions as you have about the alpacas if required during your picnic.
Please note that although we provide the tables, benches and the view we do not provide any refreshments. You must bring all that you need for your picnic and we ask that you leave the 'Alpaca Viewpoint' as you found it.
This experience is for a group of up to 6 people and costs £50.
£10 DISCOUNT IF ANY MEMBER OF YOUR PARTY WORKS FOR THE NHS, THE EMERGENCY SERVICES (AMBULANCE, FIRE, POLICE), HM FORCES (ARMY. NAVY, RAF) OR IN SOCIAL CARE.
The 'Alpaca Viewpoint' is on top of a hill and faces due west.
If it is windy, it will be windy here!
We suggest that you check the weather forecast before your experience and bring adequate clothing if it looks like being a bit breezy!
This is a working alpaca stud farm and the alpacas are left to be alpacas, as such they do what comes naturally and do not necessarily 'perform' for visitors unless they choose to!
Please note that there are no public toilets on site and dogs are not allowed.
YOU CAN PAY FOR YOUR EXPERIENCE ON THE DAY HERE AT PATOU ALPACAS BY CASH OR CARD.
ALPACA EXPERIENCES ARE ONLY AVAILABLE BY PRE-BOOKING.
