Been before and would return. Amazing value especially when you book online - butterflies, golf and maze all for £5:50! Butterflies are just lovely. Golf is entertaining for a while, and the maze is really good! Probably wouldn't do the golf and the maze had it not been for the butterfly house which was the main attraction for us, but... More

Spent a pleasant hour here on a rainy afternoon only £2.75 entry (OAP) quite warm and humid inside but that's what you would expect in a butterfly house. Lots of lovely butterflies to see plus lots of information around so you know what you are looking at, they also give you a magnifying glass to search for caterpillars, chrysalis and... More

Been here before & always a safe bet for a fun day out! Booked as a place to meet up with friends with children. Pre -booked via website for a discounted rate. Excellent value for money. Butterfly farm, mini- golf & maze were well liked by all of us & we had a wonderful time catching up. Butterflies land on... More

It was lovely to visit a place with three such contrasting attractions but each a joy in itself. The owner (one of 2 brothers) was on hand to give us a novel history of the maze, the range of butterflies were beautiful and who doesn't like a round of mini golf! There's a very pleasant vibe about this place &... More

Great value for money we spent around two hours here. But then took a short walk to the river whilst we were... More

Great visit to the butterfly zoo with children aged 5,11 and 16. We purchased combined tickets for the butterfly zoo, crazy golf, maze and laser activity. A great time had by all and a lovely coffee and cake in the tea room.

We booked online and paid £22 for all four of us, for the maze, the butterfly zoo and crazy golf ..... bargain!! We had a lovely few hours with our girls (aged 10 & 7) They loved the maze and had a competition to see who would get into the middle first. They had great fun and went around it... More
