Dogs are great, we all love dogs, but alpacas don’t agree and our alpacas come first!
There are plenty of places to walk your dog around our various sites, including Whinlatter Forest, Littletown Farm, The Lakes Distillery and The Lingholm Estate which has a dog friendly cafe, but we can’t risk taking them on walks with us.
This is an easy one! Just email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on 017687 78328 (Mon – Fri 9:30am – 5:30pm) and speak to one of our team who will update your booking.
Please note at weekends the office is closed and all staff are out on activities – your guide will text you on the morning of your activity so if you have any issues please use their contact number.
Yes! all we ask is for 48 hours notice so if gives us time to fill your slot.
If it’s within 48 hours of your booking we can reschedule your appointment to a date and time that suits you, or keep you on our system ready to be rescheduled within 12 months as soon as you have another available date in mind, or if you’re certain that you’ll never be in the area again and if it’s within 48hrs then we can offer you a full refund.
If for some unforeseen reason we have to cancel the walk like an alpaca needs emergency medical care or we are in the middle of a storm we will call you to reschedule but if that’s no possible we will offer you a full refund with our sincere apologies.
Once you have booked you will receive a confirmation email with all you need to know including your site details. Please note, we have several different locations for our activities so please refer to your confirmation email! Don’t follow google maps or you’ll arrive at the office or potentially the wrong site. If your confirmation hasn’t arrived just get in touch. There’s also a guide to our site locations on our ‘How To Find Us‘ page.
Experience has taught us not to believe the weather forecast! We play it day to day by looking up at the clouds and seeing if our faces get wet. Depending on the activity and location (Llama Treks can be more subject to weather), light rain doesn’t usually stop us but if it looks bad we will ring you and reschedule to insure you have the best possible time out :)
Please note, the weather around our sites can be very unpredictable and changes day to day often contrary to weather forecasts, although we always do our best to get you off on your adventures, looking after our animals and yourselves is our first priority. We can’t control the weather and we understand it can be disappointing, but cancellations due to bad weather are at our discretion and they’re to make sure that everyone is safe and happy. If we need to cancel we will either offer to re-arrange you to a different day within the next 12 months or if you’re certain you’ll never be in the area again we can offer a full refund.
Yes, our private alpaca walks at The Lingholm Estate can be adapted for all abilities as well as wheelchair users. Please just make a note on your booking about any requirements or get in touch so our guides know what to expect :)
Meet The Alpacas which takes place at The Lakes Distillery is also suitable, again please get in touch or make a note about any requirements when you come to book.
Other activities and locations may not be suitable, our Whinlatter site has some inclines and our Llama Treks up Catbells are only suitable for people with moderate/good fitness.
