Adrian & Mym Holcombe of Latton Alpacas are proud to announce that they have just been awarded a Silver in the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) for their bed and breakfast on our alpaca farm. This was a higher grading than they expected so were over the moon but will obviously strive for a gold next time.
They have always tried to be reasonably eco-friendly but when the opportunity arose to join the GTBS it really focused their thoughts on being green and not being wasteful. They believe that they are the only establishment in Cricklade to be part of this scheme and the only silver graded B&B in Swindon and Cirencester!
Mym told the Cricklade Bugle that they have a herd of around 40 alpacas on the Wiltshire and Gloucestershire borders between Swindon and Cirencester, just outside Cricklade in Leigh. They have a unique on-farm shop selling everything hand-crafted from our alpacas fleece.
Bed and Breakfast can be booked with or without Alpaca Experiences and offer a variety of different craft courses.
The unique on-farm Alpaca Shop which is open every Saturday from 10am-4pm where we sell a stunning range of hand-crafted gifts all made from the fleece of our herd. Items include machine spun balls of alpaca fibre, scoured and carded alpaca fleece ready for spinning, together with a huge selection of items from scarves and hand warmers to cafetière and iPod covers! We also sell Alpaca Poo which is the most amazing manure for flowers and vegetables!
