From Our Editors

Buckfast Butterflies & Otter Sanctuary is a family-run attraction that aims to be both enjoyable and informative. Children and adults can get acquainted with the animals and insects at the butterfly farm and otter sanctuary, with a keeper on hand to impart valuable information if required. Children will be able to find out about the life cycle of butterflies, and meet the terrapins, leaf cutting ants and fish. The otter sanctuary has three different species of otter: the native British otter, the playful Asian short-clawed otter and large North American river otter. Best times to enjoy the otters are the feeding sessions, organised and displayed each day.

If I had to pay full price to go in I wouldn't think it would be good for money

A lovely day out with my 2 children (7 & 9). The otters were very entertaining & Sammy really made the trip with his forward rolls we saw in the under water viewing area. Tim, who is their protector, does 3 feeding sessions taking the public around to every enclosure & talking about about the individual otters. He has 'Legend' on is tshirt & I think it's justified. What worthwhile role model for my children & for everybody he is. The butterflies were beautiful together with the turtles & massive fish & the leaf cutter ants were busy & fascinating. This day was really worth the effort. Thankyou

The otters are cute snd playful. The staff are very informative. There is a lovely little shop, a small cafe in the car park and a larger one at the railway station if required. The butterfly farm is very very hot so be wary of this
