We had such a good afternoon walking the alpacas at Abbotts View. We were made to feel so welcome & the experience was rounded off with a tour around the farm to meet & feed the other animals (including baby rabbits & lambs!) & then tea & cake which was a lovely touch. The alpacas are so tame & really are lovely animals! We learnt a lot during our walk & I would really highly recommend this experience to everyone!
The experience was such good value for money & great fun!
Thank you for a brilliant afternoon that we will remember for a long time.
