We’ve recently collaborated with the myhotelbreak team when they visited us here in Harrogate. Find out what they discovered in this guest blog edition:
Experience a different type of Yorkshire attraction this year – Discover Nidderdale Llamas in Harrogate
We were in the beautiful setting of Harrogate for a few days. It’s really one of our favourite places to visit when in the scenic setting of Yorkshire. We had asked several guests of ours when they were staying at our hotels in Harrogate some of their favourite attractions.
They had mentioned Harrogate has a wealth of places to be discovered quite a large percentage mentioned Nidderdale Llamas just outside the town, near Pateley Bridge.
We are real animal lovers here at myhotelbreak. We love Llamas and Alpacas too. So this was an opportunity not to be missed. We found out that this attractions offers the chance to have experiences and go on treks with these wonderful animals around Nidderdale.
Let’s find out more…
When looking to book we realised there were tons of different options available. This included Scenic Farm Treks, Half Day Treks and Full Day Treks and a couple of family and interactive experiences.
We wanted to spend quite a bit of time here so we booked the Half Day Trek. This was solely to experience some time with the Llamas. We must say the staff were amazing from the second we arrived. So knowledgeable and caring about the Alpacas and Llamas. We were paired with Llamas which suited our personalities best while we also went through the drill of what was going to happen on the day ahead. We were also given great tips on how to handle the Llamas when we were out trekking. We were paired with Anya and Woody and they were a joy.
The Nidderdale scenery really added to the whole experience. The ground covered is easy to navigate on the main. The pace travelled was a nice meandering pace too so it was overall very relaxing, stopping on route in a gorgeous woodland setting to enjoy beverages carried by the llamas!
The session lasts around 4.5 hours and we would really recommend it to anyone. What’s even more fantastic is the picnic lunch back at the farm after the experience. It made us very hungry to say the least and was all homemade, a real special highlight.

Anything else we should know?
This attraction is pre-booking only, due to a high regard for animal welfare and excellent customer experience. There are limited places on each option, so you receive more or less personal attention. It is not an attraction where you can just turn up & directions to find this gem, are only provided when you book.
You can book a wealth of options for adults and families with older children, (please note all children must be over 7yrs to participate and enter the farm, they do not accept younger children as the activities are not appropriate and it is not operating as petting farm).
They also offer Llama and Alpaca Therapy, Llamas and Alpacas for weddings and much more.
No wonder this is one of the most popular attractions not just in Harrogate but in the whole of Yorkshire. Take time out on your next hotel break in Yorkshire and book in at Nidderdale Llamas.
