We have visited the butterfly house several times now as my daughter absolutely loves this place. Really well thought out with lots of Information on hand about the butterflies. My 5 year old loves counting them and taking pictures and particularly enjoys seeing the butterflies emerge from their chrysalis. Everything is reasonably priced and all the staff are really helpful.... More

This was a real surprise. I didn't even know it was there until I spotted a deal on groupon. There were so many butterflies, had it not been the hottest day of the year we would have stayed much longer. Beautiful flowers and lots of information about the butterflies ... We even managed to spot a stick insect. I'm definitely... More

This place is a real gem! I was surprised at how alive with butterflies this place was, and the volunteer there took the time to tell us some really interesting facts and show us some fascinating things which added a whole new depth to the experience. We spent quite a while here. It is handy that you can come and... More

Really nice experience - large, hot, colourful butterfly 'farm' (think BIG greenhouse!) filled with all sorts of butterflys. What really made the trip for our family was the very helpful member of staff/butterfly chap/owner(?) who took time out to show us some of the less noticeable things going on in the farm - caterpillars that looked like bird poo, chrysalis...

Entered the butterfly house and was amazed at the amount of beauty fluttering around. Walking around in the tropical heat we saw colours unimaginable amongst the fluttery occupants, the terrapins were engaging and a large Atlas moth won my heart entirely. Would have loved to sit and stay longer but the necessary heat got me in the end .Thoroughly enjoyed... More

Lovely place, quite odd from external appearances as you effectively enter through a conservatory showroom. The butterfly farm itself is small but well laid out. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. There were drawing activities and books for children and they even had a hair dryer by the entrance to stop one's glasses from fogging up. No catering as... More

Took a friend for her birthday. Just magical and relaxing, How lucky we are to have this in Somerset. Should be supported. Got a deal through amazon local, so it was the equivalent of 2 for 1. Have been 3 times now and taken godchildren and adults. Intend to go back again.

Took the kids today and spent almost two hours (with bobbing in and out to cool down) inside the butterfly house. The kids loved spotting the caterpillars and the chrysalis as we wandered around but the magic was spotting and identifying the different species of beautiful butterflies. We got a chance to talk to the owner and we're really impressed... More
