A premium alpaca breeding centre in the heart of Leicestershire, Charnwood Forest provide all the services, accessories and facilities needed for the care of the South American mammals. Stud services, shearing and animal husbandry are all part of the service, and the team use their specialist knowledge to ensure the creatures are well looked after. Young and old alpacas are regularly available to buy, while those without the required time and space can make use of the centre's livery service.
Good experience especially for the price! Its worth buying the extra feed as the alpaccas were very hungry/greedy! Wear some old clothes as the younger ones were nibblers and one of the older ones sneezed its food back over me!😂 The cafe looked nice inside although we didnt stay

The alpaca walk was fun and friendly. The afternoon tea was very nice, a sensible amount of food. A lovely afternoon I would recommend.
Absolutely fantastic place to visit, a real gem of a place. A lovely 90min activity walk. Wish we'd booked for the afternoon tea as they looked amazing and great value. Would definitely do the cria feed if it comes up again too. Such well loved happy alpacas, great staff and great food too.

Wonderful time with the babies the staff are amazing and really care for the animals . Certainly worth the money for the experience.
Fantastic alpacas! Love being with the animals and very relaxing experience.
The experienxe with the lovely mums snd baby alpacas was incredible.
The experience of booking the day was horrendous. We could not book two people on the same day. And then changed the day and then could not book it correctly. In the end had to resort to speaking to the Admin at Charnwood who were wonderful and sorted us out eventually. It took 5 days!
