Ever wanted to walk an alpaca? When I seen this on Facebook I knew we’d have to go check it out! At Unicorn Alpaca Walks you get walk alpacas, meet other animals, and even leave a wish on the wishing tree!
Setting up a reservation was easy, I just contacted them on Facebook. It’s £25 per persons ages 14 yrs and up, £10 kids under 14. We were there for 2 hours, walking the alpacas was 1 hour of the experience.
Finding it was a bit tricky but just look for the Yoga Park & Church Farm sign, then turn on that road. There is parking in a gravel area, larger cars would be fine parking here.
Each person gets there very own alpaca to walk! We had Comet, Casper, and Blue. Comet has a hilarious personality and if he’s not ready to walk, he’s not gonna. As long as we stopped every few feet to allow him to grab a snack he was happy. We learned quite a bit about alpacas during the walk. The volunteers were very knowledge and were happy to answer any questions as we walked along.
I loved walking in the beautiful farmland area, it was so peaceful. We even got a treat as we got to watch an airplane land right near where we were walking. Apparently there is a landing strip right in the field next to the farm!
After walking the alpacas we were served drinks and given tags to write our wishes on for the wishing tree.
Then we met the chickens and goats. Bea even got to hold a chicken, a first for her! We had chickens when I was a teenager so I’m not a big fan, ha ha!!
We then hung our wishes on the wishing tree, mine was travel related, imagine that 😉
Our final stop was to meet Ralphie, the largest pig I’ve ever seen in my life! Mr. B even gave him a good back scratch with a broom and he loved it.
Once your finished there is a bathroom where you can wash your hands and use the facilities before leaving.
We had an amazing experience and loved hanging out with the alpacas! I heard that this summer could be a fun time to visit as they are hopefully expecting some baby cria’s, which are baby alpaca!
