  • Great for wood carvers large stock of tools and materials. Helpful friendly service easy parking 5 minutes from J40 M6 Has an adjacent clothing retail shop.
  • Disappointing if you're in it for the alpacas. The shop itself offers a pretty decent assortment of alpaca and south-American themed stuff, ranging from overpriced novelty pan pipes through to genuinely nice (but pricey) rugs and clothing, with far more of the quality stuff than the novelty. The "tea room" is little more than a few tables arranged along one wall of the shop. Didn't stop to sample the food or drink - no reason to think it isn't good, but tea room is definitely pushing the description too far. The really disappointing aspect was the alpaca experience, which consisted of a field with five or six alpacas that we viewed from a little distance while they stared back at us with a mix of suspicion and malice. There was a bonus donkey who was quite friendly, so bonus points for that. Ultimately, the phrase "alpaca centre" lead me to expect more - I'd envisaged the shop as a bonus feature, but it's well and truly the main event. On the other hand, if you're passing, it's probably worth giving it five minutes.
  • The accessories in the shop, ie. Scarves, gloves etc.. are good quality & reasonably priced, but the quality alpaca clothing is far too expensive, although they have some great pieces. I think a bridge in the prices of items needs to be found. The staff were very welcoming & incredibly helpful. Thank you.
  • Lovely shop and fantastic to see the gorgeous alpaca herd outside Such beautiful and gentle animals! A memorable experience.
  • Fantastic products just a bit pricey but well worth the money
