What you'll do

Welcome refreshments and pastries upon arrival.

Then out to meet the llamas. First, a talk on llamas and their origins, what they eat and drink, the various parts of their bodies and some telltale characteristics that help us understand how the llama is feeling.

Once everyone is comfortable being near the llamas, we will head into the paddocks to actually meet them and give them carrot and parsnip pieces. Up close and personal like this is the best way to actually experience the benefits of being around llamas. Here are the benefits:

For mental health –
 Decreases isolation and depression
 Causes many to feel calm
 Bridges communication gaps
 Provides comfort
 Reduces boredom
 Lowers anxiety and decreases agitation

After spending time with the llamas, it's time for lunch: a traditional cream tea, with sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, strawberries and cakes. Please ensure you let us know of any dietary requirements. The total experience will last approximately 3 hours.
Other things to note
Llamas are very timid, gentle, calm and quiet animals. They do not spit at or hurt humans.
Consider glamping as well: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/24826513?s=51

Hi, I am Tina. I own a herd of 9 llamas... three male and six female. I am now a Director on the Board of The British Llama Society, the UK Breed's National Society. and the editor of its quarterly magazine. I show my llamas at various national agricultural shows. I, therefore, have a lot of knowledge about llamas, their origins, their characters and personalities and how to care for them. I have taken one of my llamas to food and craft fairs, and to a couple of retirement home to meet the residents.

Tina was an excellent host. We certainly felt calmer after meeting the llamas. Rustic and natural. The llamas are well looked after. The afternoon tea was superb and catered to our needs.

an absolutely delightful day out. We learned so much about llamas. ..who knew they literally do go gobsmacked when another llama tells them off! kids really enjoyed hand feeding them and walking around the field. The afternoon was topped off with an extra treat of being able to hold some young chick's The afternoon tea was delicious and our hosts went out of their way to accommodate special diets.

We had a lovely time meeting the chickens, ducks, llamas and Chris was a fantastic and knowledgable host. It was great to learn so much about the llamas. The afternoon tea was delicious and plentiful - we’d love to stay overnight sometime soon xxx

As a group with three generations, including teenagers, this experience was fantastic for everyone. We all had fun and learnt plenty too. The cream tea was enormous so we took the left-overs home for dinner! Tina was the perfect host - full of knowledge, passionate about every detail and a great communicator. We would highly recommend this experience and also the amazing the bell tent which she rents out in the field next to the llamas.
