We had a very pleasant hour or so here, with our granddaughter in tow. The owner was attentive and helpful with information about the butterflies. There aren't that many but we enjoyed looking for them, and the terrapins and stick insects were a bonus. There...More

Once located, enjoyed a good half hour or so here. Small but reasonably priced, clean and very informative and dedicated proprietor. Situated next to Cadbury garden centre where we went on to spend the remainder of a worthwhile afternoon out.

I wouldn't have thought so. It's quite small and hot, they also have terrapins and I'm not sure how much I'd trust my dogs not to eat a butterfly flying an inch from their nose!
