The Big Bouquet Reviews
Was really exited to visit but the tours only happen a couple times a day. The alpacas seemed less friendly then the ones where we were staying. The information room needs updating, the signage was... more »
Must admit, we did only visit for the Alpacas and we weren’t disappointed. My 2 adult kids were thrilled to be able to feed and stroke them! A great way for the young and old to pass an hour! more »
good place to stop. quiet cafe with shop. coffee is good quality and you can nip next door and buy some flowers. There is a land garden with a playground so the kids can play. I think you could have a picnic on the lawn and look at the Alpacas. The shop has hand bags, scarves etc.
This place is free! It's beautiful and the alpacas are sooo cute! The only thing you pay for is if you want to feed the alpacas and it's super cheap or if you want to sit down and buy a snack or a coffee. They even have a cute playground for the kids and a trampoline area.
