Almond Valley in West Lothian (or Mill Farm as I call it) has been a family favourite since I was a little girl. According to my boys, that’s a very long time ago (my eldest asked if I remembered the WW1 sirens going off haha – I’m not that old though!). Located in Livingston it feels like a nice central location for a family day out.
Over the years Almond Valley Farm has expanded into what it is today. Even without going to see all the animals, there is enough to keep the kids entertained for the whole day if you wanted to stay that long. The undercover play area (Parrafin Works) is an absolute blast, and the boys would spend the whole time here if I let them.
On top of the outdoor play areas, there are also indoor play areas (the soft plays are an extra cost). The cafe has been expanded over the recent years and has some delicious food on offer to keep everyone happy after running riot.
There is also a narrow-gauge railway train which to this day we still have not been on (one day we will though) and a tractor ride. However, these do cost extra and can get extremely busy during school holidays when Almond Valley can be busy.
Please check directly for the latest COVID information and tickets must be prebooked before you turn up. Which is the new norm it seems for visitor attractions. In my opinion, Almond Valley is one of the best family days out in West Lothian.
