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

We have just returned from a visit to the North Somerset Butterfly House and it was magical. Masses of multi coloured Butterflies dancing around us as we wandered through the tropical atmosphere. You can sit and watch a naturally choreographed dancing display - we loved it and are going to take our Grandchildren who will be entranced. So worth a... More

We were here for a good few hours. Loved every moment. Butterflies were beautiful. You can wander around or sit quietly as they flutter around you. There are so many of them to see and if you have any questions there is normally someone around you can ask. They are very fascinating and we kept trying to take a photo... More

Took my 2 nieces aged 5 & 3 they loved it, a nice way to while away a morning ambling round inside whilst it was raining outside. Be prepared for a humid atmosphere. Coffee shop outside and nil macs for sale. You have to walk through the conservatory sales rooms to find it though.

This place is a hidden away little treasure which we discovered thanks to Tripadvisor! You enter into a world teaming with beautiful little butterflies and there is so much to see. You can wander around as the butterflies float past you, or take your time to sit for a while and just catch their wonderful little movements. It is such... More
