Alpaca experience in the foothills of Dartmoor

Lakemoor Alpacas based in South Devon offer alpaca experiences, alpaca walks, alpaca adoption packages and much more. Our shop stocks wonderful alpaca socks, wool, fleece and lots of alpaca gifts.

 

Meet the alpacas and learn more about these fascinating animals, walk an alpaca on a lead rein around the farm and enjoy a Devon cream tea. 

Adopt an alpaca and follow the life of your chosen alpaca. Our alpacas are friendly and easy to handle. They have an inquisitive nature, although can be nervous, and often come close. They rarely spit or kick.  

A voucher makes the perfect gift for someone special to visit our farm and experience these wonderful animals and glorious views, or alternatively attend a needle felting workshop to create your very own handcrafted animal, picture or brooch. 

We are based in South Devon close to the market town of Ashburton, and the wonderful Buckfast Abbey in the foothills of Dartmoor. Come and visit us and other local attractions including South Devon Steam Railway, Butterfly farm and Otter sanctuary, and Pennywell farm.

 

We got our first alpacas in 2015; Honeysuckle, Elegance and their babies (cria) Aslan and Mr Tumnus. We now have a larger herd who help us with our experiences and adoptions. Of course we use their wonderful fleece in craft kits, workshops, luxury bedding, socks and other products. Raw and processed fleece can be purchased from us for spinning, knitting and felting.


In 2016, we put on white coats and stepped out into the show ring for the first time.  Our alpacas have visited several alpaca shows, including Devon County Show, winning a number of rosettes. 


Please contact us for details and to arrange your visit as booking is essential. 

'We had an amazing time with your alpacas yesterday and she has not stopped talking about each and everyone of them. She loved it so much she said it was as good as Disneyland.'

We had a really relaxing and interesting [rip with you and the Alpacas and having the GF scones was the icing on the cake so to speak!!

'We really enjoyed our walk with the friendly alpacas and incredible Dartmoor views. It was great to learn about the alpacas from Mark, who was a warm host. Finally, the visit was topped off by delicious homemade scones and Devonshire clotted cream. Would recommend visiting Lakemoor Alpacas to anyone!


We had such a lovely time yesterday afternoon meeting your alpacas and (Grand daughter) thoroughly enjoyed herself as indeed we all did. Thank you so much for making us so welcome, I’m sure we will come again with other side of the family.
