Families & Dogs

We are one of the best days out in Cornwall for families. Lappa Valley offers a friendly and playful place for your family to make memories and spend time together. We think we’re the top attraction in the area for kids under the age of 10, and we want you to feel that way too.

Our aim is to make your visit an amazing memory for your family. We never say shhhhh. We want your kids to roam free and enjoy outdoor play, grass stains on their trousers and the thrill of going where your imagination takes you.

Our staff love talking to everyone who visits. We will wave you off on the trains, answer all of your questions and you’ll go home with new friends in our team!

We run a programme of events and activities aimed at families throughout the year.  Visit our News and Events page for details of our programme of family events.

Our free onsite activities include:

  • Entire site to explore and discover at your own pace
  • Quiz sheets to enjoy throughout the year
  • Our Musical Trail
  • Our Picnic and Paddle site

Changing facilities

There are baby changing facilities in our toilets on site. Please ask a member of staff for directions to the nearest facilities.

Breastfeeding mothers
We welcome breastfeeding mothers. There are lots of places to sit down across the site. You are welcome to feed your baby in our café. If there is anything we do to help any parents with feeding their baby, including warming bottles or food, please do let us know.


We welcome your dogs in Lappa Valley. Please keep them on leads while they’re here, and make sure they are well-behaved. There are water bowls located for them around the site, and doggy biscuits available. There is a large field at the top of the valley where you can let them run off the lead – take the Newlyn Downs train from Platform 2.
