we never expected to find lappa valley where we did (felt like in the middle of nowhere) beautiful scenery! A great little park if you're too early for your train into the attraction. Very reasonable admission prices! i would say the play parks are more suitable for under 8's as equipment is rather small however the boating lake and crazy... More

Lovely. The owners obviously take care in this attraction. The train ride from the car park to the leisure park was great and unique and once there, it felt as though you were relaxing in a local park with lots of free activities to do. Kids loved it :)

Took our 2year old here while on holiday and he loved it. It is geared up for under 8 year olds. Three mini engines for the train fanatics. You can pay 50pence on the day which gives you another visit within a week. We spent a happy three hours and our little one loved it

I would agree with some of the other reviews regarding the marketing material. That said, we had a fun day out with our three year old. The play areas were fine for her age, but I can imagine older kids getting bored quickly. The maze wasn't really a maze. The boating lake was fun with friendly staff throughout. Not in... More

The weather wasn't great but we decided to carry on with our plans to Lappa Valley. We took a train to the East Wheel Rose station which was drive by a lovely driver. The scenery is amazing. The engine house has to be one of the most beautiful I have seen and there is lots of information about it. There... More
