Frequently asked questions

Parking

We have parking on site for all pre-booked guests. Please drive via Westbourne village when using our postcode to find our gate. Once on-site parking is signposted along the apple trees on the left as you enter the gate . If you’re struggling for a spot a member of the OBG team will help you find a space.

We cannot walk in heavy rain or wind. All our walks are now held in the morning to avoid the heat of the day during the summer months. However please note temperatures over 26 degrees will mean that walks will be a maximum of 30 mins with more time spent in the shade and hanging out in the alpaca paddock. We will continue to assess the weather in the run up to your booking and decide on the morning of the walk if we think this isn’t suitable. We will issue you a gift voucher for the value for your walk to redeem another time. If there are circumstances where you will not be able to return to us, we will look to refund your money at our discretion.

Our walking experience is a form of physical activity therefore it’s important for you to let us know if you have any health concerns before you book so that we can best tailor the experience to suit your needs. The walk is through fields and mostly flat but can be uneven under foot. We offer a more accessible experience ( link to Meet & Greet page) sessions that will enable those who are not able to enjoy a walk with the herd to still spend quality time getting to know our alpacas.
Children 0-8 are free but must be accompanied by a paying adult. Our minimum requirement for a booking online is x2 adults. When bringing young children, adults must feel confident that their child can walk for the duration of the experience. If they cannot, you must bring a sling or a carrier as we cannot accommodate pushchairs during the walking part of your experience.
We are a working farm and during certain times of the year there are other farming events happening that mean we might need to make small adjustments to your experience and ask for more information from you to ensure your safety. For example, it is not advised that pregnant women be close to or handle newborn lambs during spring.

Food is not included in your experience. However, if you are purchasing food or drink when on site, please enquire at the café for allergy information where a member of the team will be able to help you when ordering. If you bring your own food this is at your own risk and we ask that wash you hands before you consume any food during or after your experience with us at the hand wash stations.

We are a farm set in lots of green space and at certain times of the year pollen levels can rise so any hay fever sufferers please ensure that you take the appropriate measures to ensure your comfort on site before you arrive. For anyone who requires regular medicine please carry any required medication with you.

It goes without saying we want you to be addicted to Alpacas not allergic by the end of your experience.

(b) An Alpaca walking booking must be made at least 24 hours before the experience. This does not
apply to our “Meet and Greet” experiences which can be booked on the day of the experience.
(c) Subject to) clause 1.1(d) once a booking is confirmed and paid for, we cannot offer refunds
except in exceptional circumstances or at our discretion.
(d) No refund will be given in any circumstances if a customer cancels a walk within 48 hours of the

(e) No refund will be given if without prior agreement a customer does not turn up for the walk.

(g) Please ensure you alert a member of the team if you have any health conditions before you book
a walk. The team can assess and advise the right experience for you. If you are pregnant, please
consult a health care professional for advice before booking a walk.

We have a customer toilet on site for all our pre booked guests and additional hand washing facilities in our café area.
We have undercover gazebo areas to shield us from any rain during your time on site as well as shade during the hotter days.
Our café horse box is there for your to purchase hot or cold drinks and snacks while on site. As well as our gift shop to browse before you leave.

For Alpaca experience guests you will need to leave your fur babies at home as you will not be able to take a dog or any pet into the same paddock as the alpacas or near our livestock. If you are just visiting for a coffee in our café area, we allow well behaved dogs on site. We reserve the right to ask you dog to leave the premises if they are causing the animals or other customers to feel anxious.

To complete one of our walking experience sessions we advise you wear wellie boots or walking boots as even in the dryer weather the ground under foot can be unstable at times. To avoid stepping in anything you don’t like please don’t wear shoes you don’t want to get messy. We will not take out anyone who is wearing open toe or heeled shoes and this is a health and safety issue. During hotter days we love to take the alpacas into the water so waterproof shoes will make our walks a lot more fun.

A great visit for a meet and greet session at Our Back Garden today. My granddaughter absolutely loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful, making it such a pleasurable visit. We definitely intend to return for alpaca walking later in the year

Had an amazing visit today, meeting and feeding the alpacas. The hosts were really friendly and informative and obviously really care about their animals and their business. The alpacas were lovely, the hot drinks great and the produce made from the alpaca wool was wonderful; I look forward to wearing my hat and socks and I'm sure our grandson will love his cuddly alpaca. Would definitely recommend a visit and would love to come back.

We had a fantastic couple of hours with the alpacas today. Such a great place, with a lovely family feel. Laura was brilliant and taught us everything we needed to know. I’m in love with Flora and wanted to take her home. Thank you so much.
