We had visited earnley the year before & spent a lovely afternoon there. When the rain poured we decided to revisit. Entry price isn't too bad & we knew what to expect. The butterflies aren't the main attraction in all honesty, it's more about the experience as a whole, there are birds, reptiles, rabbits, guinea pigs, chipmunks, birds of prey... More

Very expensive, for a very poor experience. The place is so run down it's disgusting. Mice droppings all in the displays. It smells and the poor animals are kept in terrible conditions. The poor owl trapped in a cage far too small with no stimulation. An awful day out.

Don't normally write reviews, we visited yesterday on a rainy day, as was advertised as mainly under cover! What it fails to say is its under cover but you still get wet! This place is dirty, smelly and very run down, the living conditions were disgraceful and cruel, would not recommend this place, we left after an hour!

This 'attraction' is extremely bad. The place is untidy, unclean and expensive. I will not be visiting again.

An old fashioned English attraction but lovely to visit. Needs some tender loving care. Large free car park. Kids will love the picnic , play area and small animals Shop isn't original but café is not a bad place with a large seating area and selling good quality snacks. As an OAP couple we paid a total of £ 15... More

I took my grandson(aged 4) unfortunately we were not overly impressed....however, this may be because we had something to compare it to.......the butterfly farm in Devon! I suppose we went with expectations.......

No frills, slightly worn looking - but the kids really enjoyed the gardens, the butterflies, parrots, small animals and reptiles. We spent a couple of hours here, as it said, it's very simple and perhaps in need of investment in certain areas, but the kids didn't seem to mind or indeed notice! Cost us £28 quid for the family of... More

Dreadful gardens with only begonias and dead plants. Most animals were fictitious, empty tanks. Half the butterflies were dead. Run down awful place. First time I've ever left a review!

Worst attraction I've ever been to. Cost £46 for 4 adults and 2 kids. Considering it is suposed to be a 'butterfly & beasts farm with birds of prey', we were not only extremely disappointied, but outraged by the appalling conditions that the creatures lived in. The butterfly farm was a small, dirty greenhouse with no more than 10 butterflies... More

£9 per adult to get in. There were hardly any butterflies, the birds were ok. Half the reptiles were missing , and the ones that were there looked like they were in dirty & small enclosures. The small animals such as tortoises & guinea pigs were ok to look at but they didn't look like they had been cleaned for... More
