We came with our grandchildren at Easter and loved it. Perhaps not a full day out but long enough for little ones. Everything was clean, there was a large craft room and outdoor play area with sandpit. The animals seemed well cared for and happy.We arrived 15 minutes early and they opened 10 minutes early for us. They need not... More

We stumbled upon the Butterfly House by happy accident and had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon exploring the grounds, meeting the animals and interacting with them. We were particularly impressed with how well treated the animals were - the enclosures were beautifully kept with lots of enrichment to keep the animals/birds mentally stimulated. All the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.... More

Just off the M1 so easy to get to. Welcomed by the noises of the birds. Into the action as soon as you get in. There are very informative talks going on throughout the day. Everything is very welcoming from the low fences where the rabbits and tortoises to the hands on of all the birds, creepy crawlies, meercats. etc... More

This place has improved a lot from just being a butterfly house, however it is still not as good as alternatives. We enjoyed the few hours we spent here, but unless you have young children I don't think it's a whole day out activity. We visited on a Saturday and was really surprised with how quite it was, this can... More

I like it here we have been a few times but not often as its a bit pricey to get in. Under 3s are free though Food isn't very good and a bit over priced too but it's fresh and you can see the preparation area is clean. Mostly outdoors so the weather needs to be good really but there's... More

We visited while in the area with our youngest Grandchild who is 13 years old. We were regular visitors many years ago when we got a yearly family ticket making it really worthwhile. never noticed if they still do the same deal. There are so many interesting things to do and see and get hands on with many animals. The... More

Having never been here before I was pleasantly surprised. The admission wasn't to expensive £40 for a family of 5 and an additional £3.50 of mixed food for all the animals.(optional but with 3 kids !) There was plenty to do and see. With lots of information boards that were interactive even some squirted water which made the 7&8 yr... More
