  • It's a place I'd wanted to visit for quite a while. When I eventually made time I was not disappointed. It's actually quite a small venue but the variety of butterflies was good. The first thing you.....  more »
  • Nice for a brief visit. Lots of butterflies, some big. Not sure they're looked after as well as they should be. Lots with damaged wings. One was unable to fly so bright it to the attendants attention and he said it was best to just put it out of its misery. A shame, I would have thought they'd have somewhere for them to heal.
  • Great attraction. Saw lots of tropical butteries and turtles. Very knowledgeable chap explained how they lived and we met his enormous stick insect. Would reccomend to all
  • It was a good afternoon, holding birds of prey & having one fly at you for food, the cream tea afterwards was also a nice way to end the visit.
  • If my friend had not recommended this place the only way I would have found it is if I had parachuted and landed there!! This is a shame. I went there today with my two little girls and although small it is a great place. The butterfly's are amazing and the chap who runs the place really knows his stuff. It's not a day out but I recommend this place if you have youngsters. Tie it in with something else in the area as it only takes a short while to see.
  • It's a beautiful place to visit in the summer when all the butterflies are out of flying around
