Almond Valley

Enjoy a Wonderful Day of Adventure and Play

On a wooded riverside site that extends for nearly a mile, there's so much to explore and enjoy at Almond Valley. The old stone buildings of the watermill and byres are home to friendly farm animals and a host of pets and poultry who are introduced in regular handling sessions. Across the river, among woods and gardens, there are trampolines, pedal carts and other imaginative outdoor play. Enjoy a seasonal trailer ride or a trip on the narrow gauge railway. Indoors there’s soft play and playgrounds, interactive displays and activities in the museum, and a tempting range of fresh healthy snacks in the comfort of Morag’s milk bar. Rain or shine, throughout the year, there’s always so much to interest and enjoy.

  • Adults .......£8.50

Following some rather worrying reports of strange and unearthly manifestations, we have decided that it would be wisest to close parts of the old mill buildings until such time they can be properly examined by a psychic investigator.

We hope that they can be safely re-opened in time for our “Spooky Happenings” programme of activities that begin on the 6th of October. Find out more..
