Me and my mother in law brought my daughter here for her 1st birthday, it took some finding as the satnav didn't seem to recognise where the address was, but we eventually found it! First impressions as we pulled up were that we could not believe how big and secluded it was, I had it in my head that it... More

Fantastic day out at the mad hatters tea party, it was a so good my granddaughter can't stop talking about it. The detail put into the decorations, the fancy dress and the party itself was worth every penny at £36 for 1 child + 2 adults; only comment I will make is that it may have been too steep if... More

Went here on a school trip with two of my grandchildren, it was a great enjoyable day out both fun and educational. It is a place all the family can enjoy, you can take a pinic or eat in the cafe. The animals and creatures are all well cared for and a pleasure to see and learn about.

Fabulous place I only live about three miles from it and often take my young Granddaughters they love it. All the beautiful colours and the way the children can see, if we are there at the right time, the Butterflies emerging from their cocoons. They love to see the birds and wildlife and the whole day is a learning experience.

The title of the place is deceiving for though there is a butterfly house there are not that many butterflies when you compare to say Stratford on Avon. However what it lacks there, it surpasses with the Otters, Birds of Prey, Flying displays and of course the Lemurs who not only walk around you, they will sit on your knee... More

Me and my partner took her niece who is 8, we knew that there was a butterly house near us, but it was so much more!! not only did Lilly have fun but so did me and my other half. Love this place and will definitely go again, plus it's only a 20 min drive.
