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 furry animals and colourful 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 creatures like terrapins, leaf-cutting ants and fish. The otter sanctuary has three different species: 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 times at 11.30, 2.00 and 4.00 each day.

Great for otters.quite a few enclosures which are large and well thought out with viewing areas into the hoults and the pool too. The otters love to do underwater loops informative & good value. They did not have many butterflies though. We might have been spoilt by Stratford upon Avon's butterfly house where there are millions. Buckfast have millions of terrapins instead. Enjoyable half day.
