Commonside Alpacas, Barlow


Commonside Alpacas was born from the love of these amazing animals, and what started as a hobby has now evolved into a full-time business for owner Carol who receives lots of help from youngest daughter Georgina and husband Mark. 

Based on a 40 acre farm in the village of Barlow, Commonside Alpacas provide a wide range of alpaca related activities such as Alpaca Experiences where you meet the animals with a 45 minute walk enjoying scenic views of Derbyshire followed by a meet and greet with the female alpacas and new babies. With plenty of time for selfies and cuddles! 

Or you can enjoy a Meet and Greet, a 60-minute experience where you get in with the herd for feeding, cuddles and selfies!
