Alpaca holidays are unique and memorable. Heartwarming, educational and family-friendly, a holiday with alpacas offers a wonderful way to learn about these gentle animals while exploring the beauty of the surrounding countryside.
The Alpaca Paddock is situated on the edge of Melling Village in the heart of the Lune Valley, just 5 miles from the popular town of Kirkby Lonsdale in the beautiful Lancashire countryside.
Book your very special country retreat at this holiday home in a private 3/4 acre paddock with its resident three gentle alpacas and incredibly cute Silkie chickens.
Enjoy the sunshine and beautiful views from the private outside decking area while watching the Alpacas and chickens roaming freely alongside the wonderful wildlife including hedgehogs, bats and nesting birds.
The alpacas are friendly, inquisitive and quite shy. They love being fed (and don't worry, your fingers will be safe.) Similar to llamas, alpacas are smaller and known to be more sweet-natured.
The 2-bed holiday home sleeps 6 and is open-plan with a lounge, dining area and fully fitted kitchen complete with a dishwasher, microwave, fridge and gas cooker. There's a double bedroom and a single bedroom, both with fitted wardrobes as well as a pull-out bed in the lounge and a spacious shower room.
The TV has a DVD player, and although there is no TV signal, the Chrome Cast means you can watch your favourite programmes from your mobile phone or tablet with super fast broadband. The retreat is also double glazed with central heating for a warm, cosy and quiet stay.
Ideally situated for exploring Lancashire as well as the Yorkshire Dales, Cumbria & the Lake District, the caravan is just two miles from Hornby with its castle, tea rooms and village store which offers a good range of food.
Kirkby Lonsdale is nearby and boasts the famous Ruskin View as well as a fabulous range of shops, an artisan market on Thursdays and a fantastic range of pubs and eateries.
Other places of interest nearby include the Yorkshire Dales town of Ingleton with its famous waterfalls and caves (7 miles), Morecambe Bay (14 miles), Forest of Bowland Area Of Natural Beauty (25 miles), the popular Lake District town of Kendal (18 miles) Windermere (25 miles) and the historic city of Lancaster (9miles) with its medieval castle, theatres, galleries and cinema.
