What a gem of a place. So grateful that they decided to advertise on Groupon so that more people would know about this secret lovely place. Beautiful landscape and magical butterflies fluttering around. This place is run by people who care. Make sure you wear clothing suitable for the tropics though, as it's around 30 degrees there and very humid... More

Do visit. Informative and interesting. If the owner is on hand he is so knowledgeable - a pleasure to talk to. Small shop and cafe nearby.

Visited the Butterfly House with my daughter and Granddaughter. It was lovely walking around with the butterflies flying around, my granddaughter was fascinated. I didn't know the place existed, had an Amazon voucher, glad I did, as I don't think I would pay the normal price per person.

I'm glad your daughter and granddaughter enjoyed their visit. As you seem to have had a lovely time at the Butterfly House I was a bit surprised that you only gave us three stars. Of course our usual entrance prices are higher than our Groupon vouchers, but they are still much lower than all the other major tourist attractions in... More

First visit but will not be my last. Lovely to stroll among the butterflies and also enjoy the incredible tropical plant. Well thought out paths winding around and over a bridge, terrapin pool and seating at frequent intervals. Able to wander in and out, of necessity very humid inside. Quite possible to spend several hours there. Owners extremely committed to... More

We found this little gem by using an Amazon Local voucher, and spent a very pleasent couple of hours wandering around surrounded by the most colourful creatures. As you would expect it is very warm inside but the owner had no problem with us popping out for some fresh air and a drink and then returning. Ingenious forethought to have... More

I visited with my 8 year old daughter and we had a great time. At first glance we only spotted about 5 different species of butterfly. The temptation was to wander round quickly and leave. However we spent some time reading the crib sheet and searching. We found lots of different caterpillars and after a quick break for a cream... More

This was my second visit the first one was in the Spring. I took my two children 6 and 3. On the first visit we got there early and the first ones in, we bought a quiz/fact sheet and the lady there helped the older one spot all of the butterflies and let him hold one, she took a lot... More

This was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Pete and Jess have put together a brilliant experience. Although the site is currently quite small, it feels much bigger due to the well thought through layout. There are hordes of butterflies, some of which are easier to see than others so you need to sit and wait for the others... More

Just spent a magical few hours in the Butterfly House. Hidden away next to the garden Centre it is a wonderful place to while away a few hours. All kinds of stunning beautiful butterflies flying free. Very knowledgeable, informative and friendly staff. No problem photographing the butterflies and there are information sheets to lend and colour spotting sheets for children... More
