Located on a 35-acre smallholding in the rural village of Samlesbury, Alpaca Fold provides unique and quality accommodation in rural surroundings, with the picturesque Ribble Valley just a short drive away.

Guests can relax in either a twin or double dwelling, enjoy our luxury hot tub nestled under the canopy, or spend time in our outdoor hut overlooking the private garden.

But the real stars of the show are our 10 alpacas, which we were delighted to welcome two years ago. A mixture of boys and girls, of all different sizes and ages, guests can enjoy a meet and greet, a walk with them around the farm where I talk all things alpacas and feed them their favourite food.

They roam around our fields and will often greet the local walkers who drop by daily.

I moved here with my husband, Raymond, in 2015 to fulfil our dream of managing our own farm.

Alongside the alpacas and two Springer Spaniels, we run a flock of 250 commercial sheep and are always looking for new diversification opportunities.
