Details

“Wow. Just wow. Emlyn and Storm, the alpacas, showed us such a good time on our trek today - hope it was as enjoyable for them as it was for us. What a relaxing, carefree and informative way to spend an afternoon. Wish we could rewind time and do it all again”!

Come and join us and our alpacas on a relaxing, alpaca paced, walk through the Bronte countryside. We will start with a talk about all things alpaca including fleece, behaviour, history and oddities! Then we will talk you through how to handle the alpacas ready for your walk! Once we have paired you up with your characterful walking buddy, we will set off on a steady journey through the fields up to the Haworth moorland. The whole experience lasts around 90 minutes and we have plenty of photo stops, cuddling opportunities and carrot feeding time along the way.

When we return to the farm, you will have the opportunity to return your walking companion back to their field and you can even spend some time with some of our other animals too. We have some very well trained sheep!

“Had a great time taking my 11 year old daughter and her friend on an alpaca trek , the owners were so down to earth and helpful and the setting is lovely , thank you all at Thornwood alpacas for the experience”.

Light refreshments will be available once you have put your alpaca away and you can spend some time relaxing in our purpose built, stone barn in front of an open fire, watching the view and drinking a brew.

“What a delightful, fun and utterly random way to spend an afternoon. I totally loved it. Alpacas are real characters and incredibly friendly. If you get the chance, do it”
