From Our Editors

Buckfast Butterflies & Dartmoor 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.

We had a great time. The otters were brilliant and Tim who looks after them gave us a great discussion about them. The butterflies were pretty awesome. A great place to visit for all ages young and older. So much to see in such a lovely part of Devon.

Lovely to see the otters again after so many years. They were up and about ready to be fed at 11.30. The highlight for the two year olds was to watch the otters swim in the underground pool. The adults enjoyed wandering through the butterflies more than the kiddies who by this time just wanted to see 'Thomas'! Thank you

A wonderful day. Weather was a little cold with no sun, so you had to look hard for the butterflies. There was a discount on entry for this. The entrance also gave you the chance to watch the feeding of the otters. A brilliant experience. A guide to the various types of otters and there living conditions. The guide was experienced in rescuing otters and it was obvious from the way he talk about them, they were his passion.

Really good value with this groupon. Great for kids and they do rely on visitors to keep it going. MKe sure you go at feeding time for the otters, the walk around and information given makes it much better. Take a pack lunch down to buck fast abbey and you've had s pretty cheap but nice day out.

The otter sanctuary is very enjoyable and the commentary at feeding time was fascinating. It is bigger than you think at first. Very warm in the butterfly house so take breathers outside. We enjoyed it very much.
