Delightful Quirky Accommodation
We offer a variety of comfortable but quirky accommodation, including our guests’ favourite, the Llama Lodge. This converted ancient wine press is perfect for an unusual stay, and sleeps up to 4 people. Completely self contained, not only is the lodge equipped with a kitchenette, private shower, and private toilet, it also has a small window at the back where you can secretly watch the llamas as they play in their favourite area
Maybe you would prefer Glamping in one of our thoughtfully positioned, spacious 5 metre belle tents or the 6 metre Tipi (NEW FOR 2024) overlooking the llama meadows? Equipped with real beds, cotton bedding, solar lighting and private outdoor gas showers, our glamping tents comfortably sleep a family of 4 ~ we can provide an additional floor mattress if you are a family of 5.

But whatever type of accommodation you choose, you will find everything here that you need for a peaceful and relaxing holiday or a brief, but memorable stop-over.
Furthermore, there is the added luxury of being able to spend warm, relaxing evenings gazing up at a clear, star-studded sky. Whilst not forgetting our lovely family of llamas, donkeys, goats, dogs, cats and chickens – they can’t wait to meet you!
