As a local family, Lappa Valley has been a regular weekend trip for us for a number of years. Our four year old son is absolutely fanatical about the trains and this is always reflected by the passion and enthusiasm of all the staff who always go above and beyond. Also, great to see the ongoing investment in the park too. We celebrated his fourth birthday at Lappa today in their new building and the food, surroundings and soft play facilities were all exceptional. Keith, the owner took time out to make Henry (and all of us) feel very special. The last train was full, so whilst we waited for an extra train to come back Keith opened up the woodland railway again, where we had our own exclusive rides and lots of fun! Thank you Keith and the team. All our friends are now annual pass holders based on their experiences with us!

Go there and help it grow!! It’s great seeing the continual investment into such an amazing place. The new soft play is massive and the food in the cafe really great. The value for money everywhere (even in the gift shop) is just excellent. Loads of train rides and so much to do. We have just had a week in Cornwall and this was our 3 year old sons favourite activity. We also met Keith (the owner I believe) and he and his team are clearly very proud of what they are creating. Can’t wait to go back!

Absolutely love this place, and it’s got even better. A nice 10 minute train ride through the valley to the resort. There’s a few other trains running in the park, a huge play area outside for all ages!! A big lake with boats ( in summer ) Now they have a huge indoor playa tea and a cafe: what an addition this is! Just a beautiful little place!

A fabulous experience. The grandchildren loved it. So much to do. The brand new Engine Shed is a terrific addition. Inside you'll find a great soft play area, restaurant offering delicious food, a lift to the first floor toilets and baby changing areas and the "party" rooms. Everywhere is so lovely and clean. All the staff are so friendly. Paddle swans on the lake, woodland walks, a miniature railway,outdoor play areas,the maze,mini diggers make a really fun place to go. Their aim is to be the "greenest" tourist attraction in Cornwall, and they certainly are well on the way. It was a superb day out. Thank you Lappa Valley Steam Railway
