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

Warm Welcomes on Chilly Days

If You Go Down to the Woods Today..

It might be cold and miserable outside, but in the Teddy Bear Woods, the weather is always warm and cosy. On the chilly days during January, February and until the middle of March bring along your favourite teddy bear, dolly, or any other soft toy, for a special woodland picnic in the tearoom at Almond Valley. Here there are games, camping adventures, and many interesting things to explore.
