For a truly enjoyable and memorable experience, and to unwind from the hustle and bustle of daily life, come and join Peak Hill Llamas for a gentle relaxing guided walk or a light hearted experience with our adorable friendly llamas in the beautiful countryside alongside Sidmouth’s magnificent Jurassic Coast.
We are based on a working farm, nestled in the valley between Peak Hill and Mutter’s Moor - ideally situated to take full advantage of the breath-taking views from this stunning stretch of East Devon’s Jurassic Coastline.
Our llamas are all very friendly and are great characters! They are gentle and intelligent and make ideal walking companions. They are easy to handle and will even hum to you as you are walking along!
Walking not trekking!
We are not a large commercial llama trekking centre. We don’t even call what we do llama trekking as our walks are so slow and gentle, and are all about spending quality time in the company of these lovely gentle animals whilst learning about their individual personalities - and not about covering as much ground as possible in a certain time!
Walking with llamas is a wonderful way to take gentle exercise in beautiful natural surroundings. Studies have shown that spending time outdoors in nature can reduce stress - and there is something almost magical about the relaxing and calming effect that our llamas seem to have on their human companions as they amble through the fields nibbling on the hedges and stopping from time to time to admire the scenery!
Their naturally inquisitive nature will often draw our attention to something that we might have otherwise missed – such as a roe deer hiding amongst the trees or fox cubs playing outside their den.
We are proud to be able to offer this sustainable and environmentally friendly activity in this beautiful part of the world.
What we Offer
We are very happy to offer a selection of gentle guided walks and light hearted experiences with our
These include Meet and Greet experiences for those who would like to have the opportunity to get close to, and learn about llamas without having to walk too far, half-day experiences for those who would like a longer and more comprehensive experience, and also gentle guided morning strolls and afternoon ambles of around an hour and a half including an introduction to the llamas and instruction on how to handle them.
To round off your experience or walk you can enjoy a selection of cakes and pastries with hot or cold drinks while you relax in the “llama lookout” gazebo which has lovely views out over the llama paddocks towards the sea.
For full details and prices of our all our walks and experiences please see our website: www.walkingwithllamas.co.uk
All walks and experiences must be booked in advance. As we are based on a busy working farm we can only take visitors who have pre-booked a walk or experience, and are not able to accommodate spectators. Full directions to the farm are given at the time of booking.
Each walk must have a minimum of two llamas - they are herd animals and don’t like going out on their own!
All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Please contact us for family or group rates.
Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate dogs – llamas are prey animals so are very suspicious of strange dogs and tend to view them as predators.
To book: Contact Maggie on 01395 578697 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org It would be worth giving us as much notice as possible if you have a particular date in mind as we do get busy, particularly at weekends and during school holidays.
