About Den Building Adventures and Astounding Discoveries

2021 is a very special summer, and we're doing even more than usual to ensure that everyone enjoys a brilliant time. Amongst the trees in Highlander's Wood, we're den-building once again, with sticks, string and other useful things that will stir your imagination and test your constructional skills.

There are also Astounding Discoveries to be made each day, with a programme of drop-in craft and discovery activities. These are fun and fascinating for children of all ages, and some are quite interesting for grown-ups too.

There's no additional charge and no need to book in advance. There are morning and afternoon sessions, but you can join and leave as you wish during your visit to Almond Valley.

It's all relaxed and informal, and if the weather isn't perfect - we'll be resourceful.
