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.


We're open from 10am to 5pm every day of the year except for December the 25th & 26th, and January 1st & 2nd. Our standard admission charges are:

  • Adults .......£8.50
  • Children .....£6.50

What's Happening this Month ?

  • Tractor and trailer rides will run between 11am and 4pm daily at weekends @ 50p per person
  • There's railway rides between 11.30am and 3.30pm daily at weekends @ £1 per person
  • Small Animal Encounters take place at 11.30 and 15.00 daily at weekends, and at 15.00 only during the week.
  • Lambs get their bottle, 12'oclock and 4 pm

During the first three weeks of June, midweek mornings can get very busy with a large number of booked school and group visitors. As a consequence, soft play and other facilities may be fully booked. During this peak period, family visitors are encouraged, if practical, to visit after 2pm once most group visitors have returned home.

Sorry for this inconvenience; an additional small animal encounter session is available at 3pm on those days.
