Where we will trek...
Bring a companion for just £18
You will take your alpaca on a 2 mile trail straight from the farm onto a moorland track in Dartmoor National Park. We follow a stony bridleway out towards Brentor Church which sits high on top of an extinct volcanic cone. With far reaching views in every direction, you get to gaze at Great Links, Brat and Alms Tor on the return (if you can take your eyes off of your furry pal!). We stop for 'pea pitstops' along the way where you will get to feed your alpaca pal some of his favourite treats (dried peas) and take some photographs.
Our path is gently undulating and is a typical moorland track so expect uneven terrain with some significant puddles along the way - your alpaca loves to splash in these and cool their feet but as we walk at 'alpaca pace', the trek is suitable for most fitness levels.
Wild Dartmoor ponies, Highland Cattle and various sheep breeds add colour and interest to the experience as well as the changing colours of the flora across the seasons - this is truly a magical place whatever month you choose (from swathes of yellow gorse to sparkling frosts and misty mornings!).
A huge thank you to you and your boys for making the trek the highlight of our stay in Lydford and for giving us such great memories to treasure. Not forgetting, of course, a big thank you to Annette and Keith for choosing such a special and original gift for our birthdays!
Hope the construction work on your holiday let is progressing well, Helen, and wishing you every success with your business going forward. Best wishes Elaine, Jim and Kelly
