How to find us

Please come to Tibbiwell Lane in Painswick. About 2/3 of the way down the hill you will

find a field gate with our name on the gate post. Come in there we will be looking out for you.

If you get lost, please call 07957458991and we will give you directions.
Parking is easiest on either Kingsmill Lane, which is adjacent to Tibbiwell Lane,
or at the free Stamages Lane car park, which is a 5-minute walk through the
village to Tibbiwell Lane.
Timing, please try to arrive right at your arrival time. We will be bringing the
alpacas in before that and they can get very curious if they see visitors arriving
and then won’t come in – which can be tricky.

If you are delayed please let me know on the number above.


All activities take place outside so do dress for the weather. If it is
wet a raincoat is preferable to an umbrella as alpacas are afraid of umbrellas!
It can be muddy at the farm so do wear appropriate footwear – on wetter days
wellies or walking boots are a good idea.

 

Cancellation, we require 24-hours’ notice of cancellation and can then offer
either a full refund or an alternative date. We cannot refund or rearrange
without sufficient notice. If we cancel, we will also offer a refund or an alternative date.

Making the most of your visit to Tibbiwell Alpacas.

village, a walk to the Painswick Beacon is a great stretch with views on a clear
day right across Gloucester, to the Malvern Hills in one direction, the Brecon
Beacons distant in Wales and to the south along the Severn river towards
Bristol. After a walk there are lots of places to refuel* in Painswick, these
