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.

WE loved our visit last Sunday,it was a sunny day so perfect for a picnic! It is a lovely non commercialised nothing to do with Disney garish items anywhere to be seen place to visit!Thankfully! It reminds you of how little visits were so simple and without all the need for masses of technology,rides and noise! My grandchildren loved the ants,otters and turtles the best,also the steam train and our little trip on the mini train. The guy doing the talk about the Otters was great as per-use--basically cannot fault the place!And will return as we have before.

Spent about 2 hours there. Must be there to see the feeding of the otters by Tim to make it worth while. Lovely to see the butterflies emerging from their chrysalis.
