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

Scream Teas for Halloween

Scream Teas are a wholesome three-course after-school meal of blood, eyeballs, and other oddities, served at your table by zombies and night-cats. It’s the sort of occasion when all the family can huddle around a cauldron and share its grizzly delights.

There will also be apple dooking, glow-in-the-dark soft play, goody bags, and other gently scary fun. Scream Teas only take place on the 30th and 31st of October, starting at 5 o’clock and carrying on until 7.

Places are very limited and prior booking is essential. The cost is £12 per person, with both adults and children sharing and enjoying the strange nutrition.
