Our herd of over thirty alpacas are the real centrepiece of Wilderley. Our original 'team' started with three fluffy fellas called Fergus, Mo and Dexter. Initially introduced to the farm as pets and 'chicken guards', we fell in love with their wonderful natures and wanted to expand the herd, share the fun, and start walking! Very soon we had people coming from far and wide to walk with these wonderful personalities and experience a slice of life on the farm. Our famous trio has since grown to become a band of thirty-two with a mini-llama thrown in for good measure!
In light of our ethos of animal rescue, we take in alpacas who are in need of a home, whilst others have been with us since birth. As well as just being gorgeous beings, our alpacas really are 'green' animals. Every year, they happily give-up their fleeces (in return for some sunshine) as well as producing what is known in the gardening world as 'alpaca gold' - the most perfect manure for the garden. Some of their fleece is donated to the wild birds for their nests, while the rest is sold in our little on-site shop for crafters and spinners.
One of our original band of three, Fergus is a gentle soul who walks with our younger and more nervous visitors. He is the picture of calm and a wise leader of the herd.
Comet was born with a beautiful 'comet shape' on his topknot, hence the name. He has become a rather famous fellow for his love of dispensing kisses - so much so, he has his own Instagram page called 'kissingcomet'.
Mo is our superstar and the real 'dandy' of the herd. In his previous life, he was a Supreme Champion and picked up lots of ribbons in the show ring. He's very popular with our walkers and loves a good chat along the way.
Zeus was a birthday present for Wilderley from the girls at Unicorn Alpaca walks and what an amazing gift he turned out to be. He's a miniature llama with big banana-shaped ears and a huge personality!
A real sweetheart and the clown of the herd. Dexter is what's called a 'Suri' - famous in Peru for bringing good fortune to the herd which we think he rather has.
Is the baby of the bunch. Having suffered an injury to his leg early on in life, we was hand-reared by one of our wonderful volunteers, Vicky. He received tabloid fame for being snapped by a passer-by sitting happily in her car.
Adoption certificates make wonderful gifts and help us pay to feed our rescues. Please get in touch, if you'd like to know more.

Come alpaca walking
The walk takes you on our alpaca trail past a little runway and on to a circular walk around our top fields. It lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size of group and how frequently your alpaca stops for a grassy snack. Afterwards you'll be offered some refreshments and a short tour of the farm - meeting all our other animals from the Polish chickens with their shaggy topknots to Bear, our fabulous Skunk to our cheeky team of Pygmy goats, guinea pig family, and much much more. Hang a wish on our famous wishing tree & enjoy all the fun of the farm.
The cost of each walk is £25 per person. Group bookings are negotiable over 10 people.

Parties and Events
Children's Parties
Why not book a truly old-fashioned party for your child. We are now specialising in Winter birthday parties and Christmas parties with camp fires and a specially toasty 'hobbit home' with a central BBQ area & fitting up to 20 small children or 15 adults. With 38 acres and a wonderful BBQ hobbit house, you can be assured of a great time whatever the weather! We also host birthday parties for boys which are often tricky to cater for. Aged between 8-12, we can offer a super BBQ, a meet and greet with the alpacas, a tour of an aircraft hangar and a get-together in a UFO, as well as a flying experience on our new in-house flight simulator. We can also cater for vegans, vegetarians and those with special dietary requirements.
We offer interaction with many other of our free-range animals. Relay races, pass the parcel and lots of other fun games to build up an appetite and create special memories.
£15 per head for no food or £20 per head for food supplied.
Weddings and Hen Parties
We can offer up to six of our well-behaved alpacas for your special event. Our boys have made memorable moments for many different events from fetes to country fairs where we can offer 'mini walks' and interaction with your guests.

We carry risk assessments and full insurance so are also able to visit schools, community centres, & care homes.

We love Happy Hens and have had a number of successful hen-do's on site!

We can tailor your party to your needs, from your own private prosecco party to a holistic hen-do with yoga, massage and more.

What our customers say
An amazing experience at any time of the year. Very welcoming staff and super cute animals. A really hands on experience with Alpacas, several different types of chickens and birds, rabbits and not forgetting their fab skunk (just too many to mention) We highly recommend for all ages as we had a 9, 13 and 70 year old with us.
What a fantastic day. The Alpacas were amazing as well as Bear the skunk and Einstein the turkey. Lucy was a great host with plenty of information about the animals and farm. The kids said it was their best day ever. Completely recommend this for a hands on experience.
Wanted to spend a bit of time doing something lovely with my daughter before school started and this was perfect. What a wonderful little place this was! Very personal, got to learn lots about the animals, their names, cuddles, feeding them. It was just superb! I highly recommend this. So lovely! Thank you so much x
We had the best experience ever today walking the alpacas (Comet & Gallihad) it was the best birthday present ever! I would highly recommend this to anyone. Lucie was absolutely amazing as well and such a lovely lady. We will definitely be back soon - thank you for the experience x
We had the most amazing time today visiting. Absolutely wonderful experience with the animals and the ladies were so welcoming and took a lot of time making it special for us. Walking our own alpaca was a real pleasure and we will definitely be returning. Can't recommend it highly enough and have never seen somewhere so caring over its animals. 5*
I loved my birthday alpaca walk last week. The staff were so lovely and knowledgeable and it was so lovely to see animals that were so well looked after. The alpacas that we walked were amazing, it was one of the most memorable things I've done. Thank you!
We had a fantastic time yesterday, the ladies were all really lovely, they made us feel so comfortable and at home and the setting is just beautiful. The alpacas we walked were hilarious, each with their own personalities and stubbornness, only walking at the pace they wanted to walk!
I would recommend this experience to anyone, people of all ages will enjoy meeting and walking the alpacas and meeting the rest of the animals. You can see how well looked after they all are and how happy and content they seem. We will definitely be back!
Well, if we only do one proper day out this summer it has to be the farm and alpacas at Shipmeadow!
We booked a private slot with all the animals just for us to see on our own for three hours and with no other visitors, we could have not had it any better and felt totally relaxed! Thank you to the farm team - it was an amazing, well-run, socially distant visit for us. Taking all our health considerations in mind, we were so pleased. Happy kids, happy mum and dad
What an amazing opportunity to walk with the Alpacas... after a stressful week I couldn't believe how calming this was, the information you get to learn about these gorgeous Animals is fabulous.... the ladies certainly know there stuff and the love & affection that are in her voice as they talk about them really does shine through the work they are doing / or going to do in near future is second to none - not only for the Alpacas but the other animals they rescue on the farm.... they are a no kill farm so every animal that comes through there gates finds its forever home.... and what a fabulous home it is... You truly won't be disappointed... I didn't want to leave I will definitely be going back & recommending this place to everyone I know. My Grandchildren all enjoyed it, so did my kids, but most of all SO did I.
