Llama And Alpacas

Friendly family-run farm
We’re always around looking after our animals.
Our animal barn has been designed so that children of all ages can enjoy excellent views of the animals in the barn all year round – visitors can get close in a safe and hygienic environment.
If our animals aren’t in the barn they may grazing at their leisure in the paddocks, being playful or resting.
Take an opportunity to enjoy wander around the paddocks and the stunning back drop of the South Downs. Try and spot Wolstonbury Hill and other features of the South Downs Way including the northern slopes that lead to Devil’s Dyke.
Please note: Visitors are welcome to use a pushchair but some of the stone paths that surround the paddocks are rugged and there are slight inclines in places.
