This was our third visit to Lappa Valley this summer and it is one of our favourite attractions in Cornwall. It is beautifully kept with friendly staff and is delightfully uncommercialised. It's a really relaxing day out, and our 4 year old and 2 year old love the boating lake and train rides. There are also plenty of outdoor climbing frames, swings, slides and pedal go karts for little ones to explore. Lots of picnic benches too. The weather needs to be dry as all of the activities are outside. The return cards are great value.

Brilliant value day out! Our son is 3 and loved it and so did we! Staff were really friendly and helpful. Could easily stay there all day in good weather as there is plenty to do; as well as the 3 trains there are playgrounds, a lake with boats on, cafe, shop and more! Hope to return sometime!

children aged 2 & 4 had an excellent time, was reasonably priced and they loved the 4 train rides included in the price.
lovely tranquil setting. very clean, nice play area. helpful staff.
went on the off chance and really pleased we did as children enjoyed it much more than the bigger more expensive adventure parks

As time was limited we only had a trip on the 15 inch gauge railway. Being a retired Engineer I have an interest in model engineering and miniature railways and was invited by the staff to visit the locomotive shed and view the other locomotives.

Very Very friendly and helpful staff both in the ticket office and on the operating side. An attraction I hope to go back to and spend more time at. If we had young children I think they would have really enjoyed what it has to offer a visiting family.
