Small butterfly farm but quite a lot of different types of butterfly, including many caterpillars, pupae and eggs. Only spent half hour there as we were passing by on a rainy day, and it was way too wet to check out the mini golf or hedge maze. For half hours entertainment £4.25 each was a little steep, but I'm still... More

My 5yo has recently become obsessed with butterflies (we're growing our own this summer) so decided to visit the butterfly farm, it's very small but a lot of fun! She was thrilled that the lady on the door gave her the magnifying glass and information sheet and had a lot of fun discovering which one was which. Well worth a... More

Wye Valley Butterfly farm is an inexpensive must place to visit if you are around the area, recommended age group from 5 to 105. Fascinating butterflies of all sizes and colours, also very helpful and informative staff. If you have a camera with macro facility on the lens make sure you take it with you because these butterflies love to... More

A really lovely place to visit, disabled friendly with a ramp at the entrance. Staff were very welcoming from the moment one enters. Extremely reasonably priced. We found all the staff to be friendly and very knowledgeable and all too eager to take the time to explain about the butterflies and plants on show. Wide variety of butterflies, free flying... More

A great experience for old and young alike. You can also get combined tickets with the maze, and discount on the crazy golf. I would thoroughly recommend

Children loved it. Did what is said on the box. There was a few small children tearing around when we visited and would of liked more spaces to just sit down and watch the proceedings but nice enough. Would recommend pairing it up with visit to the Maze at the same time for better value.
