"A lovely place to visit. Run by caring and passionate staff with a great deal of knowledge. If you take the time to look for the otters and butterflies rather than expecting them to be on parade (as some reviews seem to have been expecting) then its a rewarding trip and well worth a visit. Its not an all day thing, we usually end up there for an hour and a half tops. The work they do there is invaluable and visiting helps secure that this work can continue."

"Day out with a twist! You get to see the butterflies and turtles moving freely in a very warm orangery. The selection of butterflies was impressive, so was the size of some of them! The other part of the site contains enclosures where different species of otters have their homes. Feeding times give opportunity for listening to very interesting educational talks. Free flow between both sites ensures you're never too hot or too cold. If you're ready to leave all of the amazing creatures I do recommend that you go to the train station nearby to visit the train museum (free), watch the steam train stopping by or have a bite at the café."

"This place is a great stop on a trip around Devon. It is a conservation area with many beautiful species of butterfly in a great constructed habitat. Around the butterflies are other creatures such as Terapins etc... They also have very cute otters that are rescues. The staff are great and the entrance isn't too pricey. All goes to a good cause."

"Great Place to visit. All the staff are so enthusiastic about the otters. Watching them being fed and listening to the story of them is one of the best experiences we have had. So nice to hear they have been able to release some of the youngsters. Keep up the good work."

"Really nice place. Probably came at the wrong time of year because there weren't a huge amount of butterflies but there are a lot of otters and you can go all round the different enclosures to get the best view of them. Very friendly keeper for otters who does a great talk."
