  • Although this review may sound like a hitchhikers guide to post-pubescent coiffeurie it is in fact a nod to a rather more serene and splendid butterfly farm nestled between Bristol & Weston Super Mare...  read more »
  • We have visited the Butterfly House twice and both times it has been absolutely fantastic. There are lots of butterflies and you can also see caterpillars and chrysalises. We were even allowed to meet...  read more »

  • Well worth a visit. Not expensive and a great way to see different butterfly species.
  • Very nice but very small. Fair admission fees.
  • What a lovely place the Butterfly House is! Idly searching online for 'things to do in North Somerset', I came across the North Somerset Butterfly House for the first time. I must have driven past this place on hundreds of occasions without even realising it was there, so it really is hidden away. Putting the post code into your SatNav won't help much, either, because it shares the code with other houses in the area. But persevere - take the turning just past the entrance to the Cadbury garden centre on the way to Yatton, park in the car park, and negotiate your way past a place selling new conservatories. Just past a very nice coffee shop called Heathers, your patience will be rewarded by sight of the Butterfly House. We were lucky, because Pete, the bug man, was there and took the time on a slow day for visitors to show us around and teach us masses about butterflies, caterpillars and - sorry, Pete - rather more about woodworms than we probably needed to know. I have a bit of a phobia about moths and, until today, would regard a butterfly indoors as a surrogate moth, but this butterfly house has a very high ceiling and I was able to negotiate it without too much trouble. Frankly, those tree nymph butterflies are so beautiful I wouldn't have minded one landing on me. This is a great place for children to learn about bugs and butterflies , so I would recommend going on a day when Pete does a tour or lecture - he is passionate about butterfly conservation and very knowledgeable about all manner of related things like habitat. There are interesting plants here as well. Very much worth a visit.
  • A great place to go on a wet afternoon! Had a lovely hour there and the kids loved it.
