What a real treat. Really clean and animals were obviously looked after very well. Probably the neatest and cleanest "zoo" we've been to.

I last put in a review following a visit for my daughters birthday when we were unable to get the advertised afternoon tea. The Butterfly House responded to this by offering us a free return visit for 4,with the afternoon tea. We gladly took this up and had a great day...... With lovely food! Thanks very much!

We have been a few times and loved every time. The staff are always friendly and willing to stop and chat about the animals. We love how interactive it is for children and adults alike. As you can see from the photograph! We will definitely be back.
