A warm welcome awaits at Alpaca Fold

Located in the rural village of Samlesbury, husband and wife team, Judith and Raymond, moved to Aspden Fold Farm in 2017 to fulfil their dream of managing their own smallholding. They now run a commercial flock of 250 sheep along with their two beautiful Springer Spaniels and have been delighted to recently introduce four alpacas, which roam freely across our fields and often greet the local walkers.

After recently diversifying into offering luxury, self-contained accommodation, they are pleased to open their farmgate and invite you to come on over and enjoy a stay at Alpaca Fold.

What a lovely 2 nights we had here.

Judith is made for the job, nothing was to much trouble for her. Her attention to detail is second to none. stunning apartment in a stunning location and to top the whole stay off we walked the Alpacas which isnt something you do everyday!

Alpaca fold is just an amazing place.

Where do I start…the picturesque location, the escape from reality, the wonderful homely vibe…the absolute tranquility and serenity. Alpaca fold is just an amazing place. Judith the owner has got to be one of the most kind caring and genuine humans I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

memories we’ll treasure forever!

The views are outstanding and there is something very relaxing about watching Alpacas just leisurely being themselves in the field across. There are festoon lights which set the mood beautifully as the sun begins to retire and the best part of all – Judith kindly left us some marshmallows to toast on the fire pit!
