We had a really fun few hours at this farm. Our kids (both 7) herded, fed, petted and lead-walked the alpacas. The owners were so friendly and introduced the girls to lots of different alpacas, each with their own name, story and character. It was a really interactive experience. The alpacas seem very relaxed with people (especially if you’re feeding them), happy/healthy, and also a bit nosy, so it’s pretty funny to watch them whilst they stare back at you. You can get a decent lunch or coffee at the nearby Conkers garden centre as well if you want to stretch it into a day out.

The Alpaca experience lasts about 2 hours starting at about 11:00.

It's deep in the countryside and you need to follow their directions on their website to avoid wrong turns! It's on the borders of Up Nately & Mapledurwell villages - when you see the Mapledurwell village sign, Pennybridge Farm is immediately on the right.

The visit starts with a lively & very informative talk about Alpacas followed by everyone having a go at feeding the Alpacas as well as nearby goats.

After feeding time, the Alpacas are harnessed up ready for the walk. You can choose one if you wish otherwise one will be given to you and it's usually one Alpaca between 2 people.

The walk is round the farm footpaths and it's all on the flat - no hills or steps.

The Alpacas are pretty gentle & delightful creatures and are easily managed on a tight rein and it's just a very relaxing session walking them around.

There are Alpaca souvenirs & gifts available and occasionally Alpaca wool for knitting.

Very friendly people own & run the farm and walk round with you.

Overall it was a really good way of spending a few hours in the countryside doing something very different!

A bit of advice - it is a farm in the countryside and you really need sensible footwear - like a lot of visitor farms you do have to dip your footwear in disinfectant on arrival so flip-flops, sandals & canvas shoes not a good idea!

My parents organised this as a surprise morning out for us and I highly recommend it!
The farm is simply wonderful and it’s suitable for all the family.
We were met by a lovely lady called Julie who showed us where the toilets were and we could help ourselves to a hot drink.
There was a group of about 30 of us in total, we were able to feed the alpacas with hay and meet the goats that also live on the farm.
Julie was so knowledgable and friendly.
There are so many beautiful alpacas ranging in ages,we learnt so much about them and also got to walk with them too.
A really lovely place to visit!

Booked via Groupon, my second time here and just as good as the first.
If you have never been then give it a go .
Parking onsite , toilets and health and safety followed to the last.
Best bit is the alpacas, the males are feisty so opt for a laid back female. Cleopatra was adorable.

Myself and my partner visited the farm as a birthday present. Lovely warm welcome by the owners and the rest of the gang, also very knowledgeable around all things Alpaca!

Feeding and walking the Alpacas was great fun, they are very well behaved with the odd one being a bit of a renegade, which is really funny as you can see their personalities coming out. Floydd was a delight!

Cute little gift shop and loads of pubs near by for a quick lunch after too. Great day out for everyone!
