Covid – 19 Update May 2020
Due to the most recent government advice with regards to corona virus and social distancing, we are currently closed to visitors until further notice.
We are not currently taking bookings of any kind or offering voucher sales (apart from our Adopt an Alpaca Mini Packs) at this time until we have a better idea when we may be able to reopen. This is to avoid cancellations, overbooking or disappointment later in the year.
Due to the uncertainty of the situation and for peace of mind, all vouchers that have or had expiry dates in April, May, June, July or August 2020 will be extended to the end of 2021 – vouchers expiring after this period will be considered closer to the time for an extension.
All pre-booked experiences during this period can also be postponed up until the end of 2021. We will be in touch leading up to your booking to advise whether we will be able to go ahead and what your options are at that point.
We will offer a refund to any bookings or vouchers expiring during the above five month period that are unable to be postponed.
For those with any type of booking over the summer months we will be in touch individually but please do get in touch with any queries or concerns.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding during this time.
