Is there a more fun and relaxing day out to be had than walking a fluffy alpaca around the Buckinghamshire countryside? This is the core of the extremely popular offer at Abbotts View Alpacas. Booked out for months in advance, the enduring popularity is not to be wondered at. Kids and adults alike enjoy the company of these friendly but characterful beasts.

TripAdvisor not only gives this experience five stars, but rates it as the top experience in the Aylesbury area! The reasons are revealing, and the other stars of the show – the staff – are a big part of it. With deep insight into alpacas gained from working with them and breeding them on this working farm, visitors talk about learning about the unique characteristics of alpaca wool, how the alpacas like to be handled and stroked. And, on the trip around the farm, extra details on all the other fauna resident on the farm including sheep, ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs.

Hugely popular with families (under 16s must be accompanied by a paying adult), the site is also available for events and corporate hospitality, with on-site catering available.

If you fancy staying longer in the area, the camping and caravan site is caravan club-registered and very highly rated. The Royal Oak Inn is walking distance away and offers excellent B&B as well as meals and a fine selection of ales.

Conveniently located just off the A418 between Aylesbury and Leighton Buzzard, Abbotts View Alpacas is a great day out for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors. Why not get really involved and take on an alpaca sponsorship to contribute to the health and wellbeing of these lovely animals, packages start at £22 and, at gold level, include a child’s alpaca walking ticket and an accompanying adult ticket. With sufficient notice you can walk the alpaca you’re sponsoring!
