Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary

Devon

On the edge of Dartmoor, by a river actually populated by wild otters, this park combined a good butterfly house and a group of otter pens in a really compact space! There are good views into the enclosures of the native British and Asian short-clawed otters and feeding was informative. The short-claws in particular looked very well fed!

The steamy butterfly house is a pleasant sideshow to the otters (of course!), wandering among the tropical foliage and free-flying butterflies and moths. Two hours is enough to see everything properly, but watching otters at play can always eat up more time! The shop is full of great ottery stuff.
