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 .......£7.50

Harvest Study Visits

We're now taking bookings for school visits during the autumn term.

There are crops in the fields, fruit in the orchard, fine produce in the wartime garden, and all sorts of surprises in the polytunnel.

We'd be delighted to offer discovery sessions tailored to suit study of harvest-time, food production, or many other topics of classroom study.

.....and of course. we continue to offer our usual range of animal-related discovery sessions for visiting school groups.
