About Ashdown Forest Llama Park
The Ashdown Herd of llamas and alpacas was
started in 1987. Over the years the numbers have increased and in 1995
what is now the Park was purchased, and opened to the public in 1996.
There are now more than 100 llamas and alpacas at the Park.
As well as the llamas and alpacas, the Llama Park is also home to three beautiful female reindeer. Dasher, Dancer and Blitzen arrived at The Park in April 2007. Originally from Sweden, they settled into their new Sussex home very quickly.
There are three original buildings. One is now the museum, one the old goat house and one the Gift shop. The Farmhouse, occupied by the Park's owner, Linda Johnson, was built in traditional Sussex style in 1997. The new visitor centre was opened in spring 2001.
