Peak Hill Llamas

Tel: 01395 578697     E-mail:

We offer a selection of escorted walks with llamas on East Devon's spectacular Jurassic Coast including a morning walk with tea/coffee and muffins, and an afternoon Devon cream tea walk. Llamas are gentle, inquisitive animals and make ideal walking companions. They carry packs containing all the food & drink, and we stop half way for refreshments and to take in the magnificent scenery. We are very fortunate in being based on a 330 acre working farm just outside Sidmouth, and all our walks - including a section of the South West Coast Path - can be done without leaving the farm's own land. All our walks have breath-taking views of the Jurassic Coastline and surrounding countryside. Group visits & corporate events also catered for.
