HALLOWEEN ALPACA MEET & GREET
A spooky treat that children will love!
Meet the Alpacas who live at Frankly Alpacas and enjoy feeding and petting them. We’ll tell you all about their individual characters and introduce you to this year’s baby alpacas. On the way round, children can enjoy finding the items hidden around the farm on our mini Halloween trail, followed by Halloween arts and crafts in our marquee while the alpacas watch on.
Kids will love meeting the alpacas up close and personal, learning about their characters and exploring the farm. You'll love the rustic, authentic and beautiful setting where you can enjoy the peace and quiet and amazing views while you hang out with the herd.
When you arrive at the farm, we'll talk you through the important health and safety practices so you're set up to have an enjoyable and safe experience. Next, we'll take you on a walk through our three paddocks, introduce you to the Alpacas and tell you a bit about them. We'll provide you with food for the Alpacas and let you enjoy interacting with them. You will then have plenty of time to bond with the Alpacas, feed them and take photographs with them. During your experience, you can ask us any questions you would like and we'll do our best to answer them.
Once you've met the alpacas, children will be free to enjoy our Halloween crafts and activities in a marquee. Refreshments will be available on the day at extra cost.
Finally, before you leave, each child will be given a beautiful handmade alpaca keyring, made in Peru from real alpaca fleece, as a memento of their experience.

What You Need To Know
Frankly Alpacas is based on a working farm with minimal facilities in a rural location. You may need to walk across rough and uneven ground in multiple weather conditions.
While Alpacas are calm and good-natured creatures, they are still large wild animals and can therefore be unpredictable. It is imperative that you supervise any children you bring with you at all times, ensuring they remain by your side and are not allowed to roam around freely. This is vital to ensure their safety.
For reasons of safety please be aware that you must ensure your hands are washed and cleaned after handling the Alpacas and before you leave us.
We provide handwashing facilities and anti-bacterial gel.
Booking Terms and Conditions
Please note that this is an outdoor experience on farm tracks. These tracks are not smoothly tarmacked and may be uneven or muddy. As a result, our experiences are not accessible for wheelchair users or pushchairs.
We reserve the right to refuse you participation of the experience if we feel it is a risk to your own safety. In this instance no refund will be given.
While alpacas are generally calm, reserved creatures, they are still wild animals and can therefore be unpredictable. We have done our best to minimise the risks of accidents but unfortunately we can never completely eliminate this risk. Prior to the experience we will brief you on our health and safety procedures and it is your responsibility to follow them at all times. We cannot accept responsibility for any accidents or injuries that occur whilst you are on our premises.
Bookings can be made online, via email or by phone. Online bookings or bookings via email must be made 48 hours in advance but please feel free to call us within 48 hours for last minute availability.
Please be aware before you book your experience that we cannot offer refunds if you change your mind. We will try to re-book you at a later date if there is a genuine reason for not attending, at our discretion, but during busy holiday periods this may not be possible. A rebooking fee of £15 will apply.
We do not issue refunds due to inclement weather. We do run experiences in the rain so please be prepared to bring some wellies and wet weather gear with you. Although we wish it were not so, the weather is not within our control.
If we have to cancel for any reason you will either be offered a later date or a refund.
Please ensure you arrive 5 minutes prior to your allotted start time to allow for you to be booked in. In order to ensure our experiences run to schedule, we are unable to accommodate late arrivals and a refund will not be given.
If you have underlying health conditions then it is your responsibility to assess whether you are fit to undertake the experience. If in doubt please consult a medical professional prior to the experience.
Children remain the responsibility of the supervising adult at all times whilst on site. Please ensure they are capable of completing the experience they are booked for and ensure they remain under your control at all times.
Although our alpacas are clean animals we would strongly advise washing hands prior to eating food and leaving the site.
We reserve the right to refuse your participation if we feel you are under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs.
