Fun with Alpacas
Alpaca Walking Experience
£25 for 1 Person - 1 Alpaca , £30 for 2 sharing. A maximum of 2 people can share one alpaca.
One additional guest may accompany the walk for an extra £10 but will not be able to lead the alpaca.
Under 8 years cannot lead the alpaca but can hold the end of the lead rope. Age 8- 11 can lead the alpaca with an adult holding the tail end of the lead rope. Age 12- 16 can lead their own alpaca solely accompanied by an adult.
Come and walk with our friendly alpacas against the backdrop of the beautiful West Kent Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Beginning with an introduction to our lovely alpaca boys (Aubree, Benjen, Davos, Marsden and Sunset) we will teach you how to handle them, impart some of growing knowledge of these wonderful animals and answer any questions you may have. We will then pair you up with your furry walking companion before beginning our walk. Marsden likes to be at the front of the walk and Aubree prefers the back.
During the 45 minute walk you can get to know our boys better and take in the beautiful countryside. There will be plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the view and even take a selfie or two.
On our return to the farm you can treat the boys to their favourite treat, carrots from our vegetable plot. There will be time for a few more photos and good fuss of all the alpacas. The whole experience will last approximately two hours.
Afterwards, you are welcome to leave your car with us and enjoy the surrounding public footpaths. Alternatively you could book a picnic slot and stay for lunch in the paddock. Check out our Alpaca Picnic Experience.

Mindfulness based sessions (March - October).
With such busy lives, many of us fall into the trap of thinking about the past or worrying about the future, often meaning we are distracted from the here and now. 'What shall I cook for dinner tonight?', 'How will I get through all these emails?' 'Did I nail that job interview?' 'Did those people like me?' Mindfulness is the practice of connecting with the current moment, being truly present and allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without struggling with them. At it's heart, is learning to slow down and just be, without judgement of self or other. Mindfulness is an evidence-based practice which is recommended by NICE guidelines for mental health disorders.
Combined with the well-established link between being outdoors, in nature and with animals, we are confident that our Mindfulness with Alpacas Experience will give you the skills to be mindful in your every day life with subsequent impact in your emotional health and well-being. Come for a one-off session as a taster but for the full benefit book the whole eight-week course and commit to practising in between. We know you'll feel better for it.
Each session will take place in the paddock with the alpacas. Sessions will last one hour, to include a 20-30 minute guided mindfulness practice. The remainder of the session will be spent discussing the rationale for each practice and reflecting on the experience.
Please note, sessions will be run by Jemeela who is a qualified Clinical Psychologist with professional experience in
We are able to offer bespoke packages to suit most groups and occasions including: community groups, educational visits, team building days and
individual therapeutic sessions. We are currently designing packages for cub and beaver groups, nursing homes, forest schools, special schools and local businesses as well as one to one therapeutic interventions.
