About

Our knowledgeable guide will take you across fields within the boundaries of the 400 acres of countryside on Owslow Farm, Carsington. While learning all about these fascinating animals, we also have lamas and you’ll learn the differences between them.  You will have the opportunity to spend time with the alpacas in their paddock and feed them some yummy vegetable treats. 

Children will be delighted with the souvenir pack they receive at the end of the walk!!
