Wildlife around

Watervale Retreat

Meet the Emus, Alpacas and Fallow Deer

On site Animal Park

We have 3 Fallow Deer, all are skittish in nature and tend to run as soon as they see anyone, although less likely to run at feeding time, they still won't come too close. They like to lay under their favourite tree which is behind one of the cabins.
On the 4th September 2015 we acquired Hector (black) then 2 1/2 years old. On the 15th of October we were lucky enough to purchase a five month old two tone alpaca by the name of Picasso.
On the 15th November, a surprise phone call led to us getting 3 emus who were then only three months old. Now half way to adult hood, they are already tall. Named Sprinkler (because you get soaked if you stand nearby when drinking), Raptor (reminds you of a velociraptor when he eats his lettuce) and Nippy (say no more!).
The alpacas and emus love to follow us around and very inquisitive, especially when they think you have food.
Occasionally they are allowed to go into the accommodation area when there are no guests and they clearly enjoy the change of environment. Because they follow us around, they are easy to move back in the animal park.

Bella and Raptor like hanging around together.

Very comfortable bed and warm!
I emailed a query prior to arriving and it was answered very promptly - much appreciated.
Enjoyed feeding the animals and learnt a lot about emus and alpacas.
The warm bread delivered each morning was a wonderful, homely touch.
And I'd forgotten how lovely rainwater was!!
