About
Charnwood Forest Alpacas is located in Boundary, a hamlet nestled on the Leicestershire and Derbyshire border and situated on the outskirts of Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Our 110 acre farm at Charnwood Forest Alpacas is one of the first, original and largest alpaca farms open to the public in the UK. We are passionate about sharing the wonderful personalities of not just our alpacas, but all of the animals at the farm, and offer experiences with lots of our animals to help share our passion with you. You are also very welcome to walk our ‘farm walk’ at your own pace to meet our alpacas, horses, donkeys, sheep, pigs, chickens, cats and to visit The Chilli Bean for a quick drink and a bite to eat or tasty afternoon tea!

What an enjoyable afternoon. The alpacas were amazing and much fun with their different personalities. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this fun afternoon to all. The Afternoon Tea was the icing on the cake.

Absolutely fabulous, loved every minute of it. Chloe was very knowledgable and friendly. I was nervous and she made me feel at ease and made sure I was safe. Would definitely recommend. It was freezing cold and foggy and i still loved it. Would recommend and will be booking again.

Had the best time. We booked this as a group work outing and though this is not what they are used to they could not of been more helpful. The guide lady was very nice, informative and jolly. Loved the alpacas and the added bonus of seeing the lovely pigs, horses, donkeys and chickens on the way round.
Brilliant and fun way to spend a few hours.
Thank you all so much. Xx

My son brought me an alpaca walking experience for Christmas and what an amazing afternoon we had! Every step of the experience was professional and our guide Kaylee was really great. We walked our alpacas, fed them, got photos with them and then had a lovely afternoon tea at the cafe afterwards. Amazing time and I want alpacas now! Well worth a visit and the walking experience is great for couples or the whole family. Will definitely be back!

We had a really lovely day at Charnwood Forest. The walk with the Alpacas was great fun and the guide was extremely knowledgeable. There are so many fun facts that I learnt about Alpacas! The afternoon tea was lovely as well. They catered for our dietary requirements (vegetarian) and all of the staff were very friendly. The cakes and sandwiches were yummy! I have since bought this experience for friends of ours as I know they'll have a great time. Highly recommended.

We have had a fabulous time at Charnwood Forrest Alpacas. Harry and Siobhan ( but I might have those names wrong the manager and Alpaca handler.) These girls were delightful and went out of there way to give us a fabulous time with the alpacas. The tea room was cosy festive and tea delicious, served with a smile. A great festive treat.

I had previously posted a negative post regarding customer care and lack of compassion. I have since received an apology and a credit for the experience we were unable to attend due to a family medical emergency.
This has completely restored our faith in human nature and once again we are now so looking forward to walking with the Alpacas in the not too distant future.
Thank you so much for your kind offer and this gesture of good will for which we are so grateful.

We had such a lovely day with the Alpacas. The walk was a really long walk which was good as it gave us lots of time with them, opportunities for pictures and to feed them etc. Our guide Siobhan was really nice and so knowledgeable. Learned a lot about them through her. Then we had afternoon tea in the cafe which was lovely. Very filling. Would definitely recommend.
