ALL ABOARD! Lappa Valley is one of the best family days out in Cornwall. Take a nostalgic steam vintage train ride on Zebedee, Muffin or Rosie and weave through leafy woodland to the site of historic East Wheal Rose mine. There’s something sweetly nostalgic about hearing the toot of the train’s whistle and being engulfed in clouds of steam as you set off down the tracks. Once there, paddle a canoe or giant swan around the boating lake, explore gentle nature trails or the wooden fortress, play crazy golf and ride more tiny rare trains, such as the woodland railway, with sit-astride benches. Set over 35 acres there are adventures for all both outdoors and inside. Make happy memories as a family, roaming free and enjoying play in the great outdoors! www.lappavalley.co.uk

ADVENTURE PARK FOR ALL AGES. Dairyland Farm World has masses to do inside and out.

The Bull Pen, a huge undercover play area with climbing nets, slides, and ball pools, and outside there’s trampolines, assault courses, play area for smaller children, mini ride on tractors & JCB’s. Still a working farm, the daily milking session is a main attraction when the cows step aboard a merry-go-round milking machine and are milked to a rousing musical accompaniment. This amazing milking parlour is just like a space-age nightclub, complete with glitter ball. Visit a bygone age in the Cornish Heritage Centre and educate the children how life and work used to be which sits next to the alternative energy centre. A tranquil nature trail rolls down through the valley with woodland walks to lakes filled with wildlife from fish to swans and for those not up to walking there is a Hayride daily from 1pm. www.dairylandfarmworld.com
