Surrounding area is quite shabby.The staff at the butterfly zoo were very nice and friendly.Shop had a run down feel to it.I was disappointed that the area where the butterflies are is small.You keep bumping into the same people as you wander around.A larger area would be far more suitable.Great for photos and entrance fee i think is too high.

Wonderful way to view the butterflies up close. Beautiful setting and it's lovely that you can walk around casually at your own pace, and take lots of photographs!

When you first arrive at the butterfly zoo first impressions aren't great. The buildings and surroundings are shabby and when you go into the shop to pay its half empty of stock but full of dust!!! Putting that aside though, once you go through into the butterfly enclosure that goes out of your head as you wander round and see... More

its great to get close up to nature the butterflies are spectacular and children & adults alike are given sheets and a magnifying glass to identify each one. On the down side (for obvious reasons) its extermely warm and stuffy inside

We had heard that this place was well worth a visit and walked from our hotel. This involved taking the hand ferry across the river which was fun. The staff were very welcoming. We were there at the same time as a cub pack who were having a great time. The butterflies were beautiful and stunning flowers.

This nice little attraction is well worth a visit. The butterfly house isn't huge but it's certainly well maintained with a great variety of butterflies. It allows for awesome photographs and you can return as often as you like on the day you purchased your tickets. We got the 3 attraction ticket with the maze and golf too. We would... More

We got the three attraction ticket which is for the Maze, Golf and Butterfly farm. The butterfly farm was very interesting and had so many different butterflies a few even landed on us. It was great fun. Had a lovely day at all three attractions then topped it with lunch at the hotel across the road in their beer garden.... More

Lovely little place, does get very warm though, bit too hot for our 1 year old, but staff friendly and knowledgeable. Information leaflets and small talk given prior to going in. Reasonably priced and worth a visit.

It was a lovely little place and kept us entertained, but could only spend an hour or two there. Staff were friendly and helpful.
