Country walks are right on the doorstep and the Dales Way is adjacent to the farm. Our large herd of Alpacas can be seen in the fields grazing and with an ever growing herd of over 60 not to forget our ducks makes a visit to the barns something different. When staying at our barns if paying guests wish to see the alpacas and get the chance to feed them we offer a free of charge up close meeting with them, something you don't get to do everyday and an enjoyable experience not to be missed.
We moved to this beautiful part of the country 13 years ago to enjoy a better way of life and we haven't been disappointed. Living in wonderful countryside yet within easy reach of Kendal and the motorway network we feel very lucky to have found Simgill. The farm was in a bad state when we acquired it and we set ourselves a major task to renovate the farm and barns. During this time we have kept various animals but by far the easiest and nicest animal to look after is the Alpaca. We have over 60 with an ever increasing herd. We are hands on with our herd and guests have said it has been the highlight of their stay to meet and feed our Alpacas, even going as far as to say it has been one of the best days of their lives so far.
Scenic, peaceful, idyllic yet has easy access to the M6 motorway, Kendal market town and the amenities of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Ideal for friends and families meeting from all parts of the country.
