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.
