Alpaca Centre

Snuff Mill Lane Stainton CA11 0HA

Want to know what you can make from the wool of an Andean alpaca (think llamas, only smaller)? Drive the few miles up from Ullswater and you can find out – not to mention have a look at the pretty beasts in their paddock behind the shop and sales centre. Rugs, cushions, coats, bedding, socks, toys, jackets and jumpers are all for sale, plus handcrafted jewellery and accessories, and some fine furniture and ornamental wood. Cakes and coffee are available too.
