About
We will be opening again on the 1st April 2022. All visits must be booked through our website. The booking system is open now for you to book in advance. You will be required to use the biosecurity shoe (sole only) dip prior to entering the paddock. Hand gel will be available though out the experience. Should you choose to wear a face mask this will not be a problem. These cute animals are intelligent, inquisitive and relaxing to be with. For centuries alpacas have been farmed for their desirable fleeces. They are also kept as pets and to protect livestock. Visit Cary Alpacas for a 2-hour experience giving you the opportunity to visit their home, learn about their needs and to join them on their walk. Don't forget to bring your camera! ALL VISITS MUST BE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

The perfect family afternoon out spent with Kim and her alpaca family. We had an amazing experience getting to know and walk the alpacas. They are such adorable, funny, gentle and intelligent animals and you can see how much Kim loves them and how well she takes care of them. We went with our kids aged 13, 11 and 7 and they all loved it. Kim was able to pitch it perfectly to ensure that each of the kids could learn about and enjoy time with the alpacas and the adults had fun too. Would highly recommend this place!

We visited Cary alpacas as a family with two teenage daughters. Kim was so welcoming and informative about her alpacas she really cares about them and knows them all so well.
She asked our girls to help her to herd the alpacas into the barn so they could get harnessed and it was lovely for them to get involved.
What beautiful and calming animals the alpacas are and it was a delightful experience along quiet countryside and quiet roads.
We all left feeling very chilled and enjoyed the whole morning. Such a great thing to do for the whole family.

We spent 2 hours in the company of Kim and her Alpacas and I would recommend it to anyone. Kim has a lot of knowledge and we found out a great deal about these lovely animals. Our grandaughter aged 7 felt completely relaxed and unafraid of the alpacas. Kim is calm and relaxed and therefore the animals were too. By the end of the afternoon we also felt calm and relaxed and went home with big smiles on our faces.

Would highly recommend visiting Kim and her alpacas for a wonderful experience walking, petting, feeding and enjoying the alpacas. Lovely informal experience, sat in the sunshine surrounded by alpacas as Kim shared her extensive knowledge on this exotic animal with a great sense of humour. Really affordable and worth every penny! Thank you Kim - we'll be back if we are ever down south again!

Wasn't sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Kim the owner was very personable and down to earth. We were given a really informative talk about all things alpaca. This had a really balanced mix of information to satisfy all ages without being overly simplistic or complex.
From the very start we were in the paddock with the herd so it was very immersive.
We were even able to choose (within reason) which alpaca we could lead for the trek.
Once the animals had been fitted with halters and leads we were off! A very pleasant circular route around some footpaths and fields really enabled us to see the different personalities of everyone's animals. Although they pretty much followed each other all had their own traits and I definitely felt there was an opportunity to 'bond' in that time.
A thoroughly engaging couple of hours in beautiful countryside with endearing animals and a great host that will see both adults and children enthralled.

I'd absolutely recommend Cary Alpacas to anyone, my visit was interesting, informative and great fun. It was something I'd never have thought of, but given to me as a birthday gift by my sister - one that will be remembered for years!

Kim is a great host. Friendly and full of interesting information about the alpaca world. She will share lots before the walk begins, so you have a decent comprehension of what's happening, but she also happily answered endless questions from us and others in our group.

If you're looking for a unique gift idea for any age group, something to do that is unusual or simply have a love of animals, a visit to Cary Alpacas will not disappoint.

Great little half term activity for the grandchildren. Kim was very knowledgeable and passionate about alpacas and gave us a great hands on experience. She really tailored it for two young girls who were totally absorbed. Recommend.

Kim was a lovely host & very welcoming, she was very easy to talk to & ask questions about the alpacas.
The 2 hour experience of a walk, talk and feeding of the alpacas was perfectly timed & the alpacas are clearly very well looked after.
The location was very easy to find and there is free parking on site.
Thank you so much to Kim and all the alpacas for our joyful experience.

We and our two little granddaughters thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Kim is very knowledgeable about the alpacas and very interesting to talk to. The scenery is beautiful and we all had such a great time. The children gained confidence as the visit went on, interacting with these lovely animals. We would recommend it to everyone who enjoys animals and being out in the countryside.

Booked this visit for me and my girlfriend while on a trip to Somerset. Kim was very welcoming from the start and clearly loves the alpacas she has there. We were fortunate enough to be the only ones there for the trek and prior to the trek Kim gave us a very informative talk about the alpacas and their characteristics. Kim made sure we were comfortable with Somme and Amazon (who were absolutely adorable) before we set off and then we started our hours trek. There were plenty of opportunities to take pictures along the way and get to know the alpacas. Kim was happy to answer our questions and made the experience one we won't forget. My advice to anyone considering booking with Cary Alpacas is to do it as you won't regret it !
