What people are saying:

Unfortunately due to Covid, the butterfly farm was closed but the otter sanctuary is still open and well worth a visit. Visits cost £8 per adult and is for a 2hour visiting slot. Lots of beautiful otters to see, in several enclosures. Habitat was excellent for them and all had pool as well as indoor shelter area. The sanctuary is a family run business caring for several types of otter and obviously have a great love of these beautiful creatures. Feeding time is a must, such excitement amidst the otters when they smell the fish.
