Highlights

Come and walk one of our wonderful Alapca in the Upper North Tyne Valley situated in the Northumberland National park. The beautiful countryside is within sight of the Kielder Dam just outside the village of Falstone, close to Bellingham. 
​Group Walks; A walk will start with a safety introduction then an introduction to the  Females of our herd and some hand feeding. After a short chat about the walking boys will be walked on a lead for approximately an hour roughly 1 1/2 miles. The walk will take place at a relaxing therapeutic “Alpaca Pace”. Walks are carried out in small groups of no more than 8 animals. However we do not walk unless there are at least two alpacas as they are herd animals, in the event there is only one customer booked we may contact you to cancel/reschedule.
Private Walks for groups can also be booked Cost 4 Alpacas minimum please use the contact us from our website to book dates are limited and not shown on the schedule on line.
