PSA: You can now stay on a beautiful Irish farm with a bunch of alpacas.
The Lodge at Hushabye Farm in County Laois, Ireland, offers guests the chance to stay in a gorgeous, two-bedroom stone cottage tucked away on the alpaca farm.
Located in the foothill of the Slieve Bloom mountains, the cute hideaway even comes equipped with alpaca bedding and guests are encouraged to engage with the adorable animals during their stay.
Visitors can book the 'Hushabye Farm Alpaca Experience', where you'll have the opportunity to feed and walk with the alpacas as well as bagging a few cute selfies.
The cottage itself features two queen-sized bedrooms as well as a fully equipped kitchen and living area.
Guests on Airbnb have described the dreamy lodge as "amazing" with one writing: "Hushabye Farm is an amazing place for a relaxing getaway. The lodge is beautiful, cosy and warm.
"The wood fire is a lovely addition. We were greeted by two of the alpacas on arrival and we spent some time taking them for a walk."
Another described it as an "oasis", praising hosts Paul and Elizabeth for their hospitality.
"Hushabye Farm is an oasis where one can relax and take a break away. The Lodge is a beautiful, cosy and inviting space which welcomes you to connect with your travel companions, cook a nice meal or settle down for the evening with a good book," they wrote.
"The experience of being able to wander around the fields and paddocks with all the animals is like none other.
"The hosts are exceptional, Paul took the time out of his morning to introduce us to and tell us about the alpacas, sheep and Valentine the horse [...] Would definitely recommend."
Other guests described it as the perfect place to switch off and take a break. The cottage doesn't have WiFi, so it's the ideal opportunity to go off-grid for a few days.
Prices start at approximately £88 per night, but if your dates aren't available, the farm also offers Jack Wright's chalet, located at the top of an alpaca field.
With floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room, you can start your day looking out at the herd of beautiful alpacas.
Meanwhile, over on the farm itself, there's a shop selling clothing, bedding, jewellery and other trinkets - as well as workshops to get involved in, too, including a 'Spin a Yarn' class.
