  • 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.
  • Wonderful little place, staff were very friendly. Ticket entitles you to come in and out as you please on the day of your visit (which helps as when we visited it was around 35°C inside).
  • Drove 3 exited children over an hour to visit the butterfly area only to find it was closed. The website said otherwise. Very disappointed and upsetting for the children.
  • Disappointed by the size and amount of butterflies. In my opinion not value for money, 30 mins and you seen it all.
  • Great place to visit with the kids or if you are interested in nature, exotic plants, butterflies or photography.
