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 .......£7.50
  • Children .....£5.50

Fun for the October break

This year's Spooky Happenings are a little out of this world, and most of the scary spirits of Halloween have been kept at bay by the surprise arrival of some little blue people in a flying saucer.

Captain Nancy Flibberjacket was plotting stella coordinates, (and ordering a pepperoni pizza), when she lost control of her craft and crash landed in the duckpond at Mill Farm. She and her crew are stranded here until they can fix their craft using spare parts bought on e-bay. While waiting for the parts to arrive, the Flibberjacketeers are having fun building strange machines from the junk that they find, and inviting each other to an endless round of tea parties.

Every day until Halloween you have the opportunity to meet the Flibberjacketeers, who will be doing odd things in odd places around the Almond Valley site. Find all the crew, crack the code, and you can enjoy a crash course in how to speak Flibberjackian.

In the museum, you can build and colour your own mini-saucer, then join the flibberjacketeers to pilot it through the eternal misery of the black void.
