Toft Lane is located off the A426 just outside Dunchurch on the road towards Southam. If you are heading out of Dunchurch, Toft Lane is the first turning on the right after the M45 motorway bridge. We are a short hop from Draycote Water, and if coming up from the reservoir Toft Lane is a left turning at the top of Toft Hill as you approach Dunchurch.
From Dunchurch Village walk about a kilometre passed the Old Thatched Cottage and the Fish and Chip Shop in the direction of Southam. You will cross both ends of Sandford Way and then over the M45 Bridge. Toft Lane is on your right, and the drive and entrance to the shop is signposted Toft Manor, to the right as the lane turns left. From of Draycote Water you can see the alpacas from the side of the reservoir at the North East tip. Here you will find a set of double wooden gates and a small footpath gate. Go through this gate and follow the footpath up the hill to the right. Here you will be walking with alpacas on your left up towards Toft Manor. At the stile or gate turn left onto Toft Lane and you will find the entrance to Toft Manor and the Shop on your right on the corner as the lane turns right.
Talks to interested groups and parties are available by arrangement and all visitors are welcome to take in the view and take a walk to meet the alpacas. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
