Welcome to the Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary and Buckfast Butterfly Farm.
A small, friendly, family run South Devon attraction, ideal for a family visit whatever the weather.
Having closed our doors to visitors again as per government instructions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we need help to feed the rescued and resident otters at the Sanctuary.
If you can donate and help us please follow the
link below, thank you.
We are currently closed in line with government instructions but expect to welcome visitors to the Otters only again from April 12th 2021.The butterfly house and everything indoors will remain closed for the time being. Our online shop remains open and all proceeds go to the care and upkeep of the otters at the Sanctuary. Tickets to visit from April 12th can be bought here.
Please remember while we have to limit numbers to enable social distancing, all our usual offers of extra discounts and concessions are not valid.
A real experience in a genuine sanctuary for otters★★★★★
An otterly wonderful hols highlight★★★★★
Lovely to see such well looked after animals at play★★★★★
Definitely a good one for kids to see, staff are lovely and obviously love their job. small place but very tidy and otters seemed SO happy★★★★★
I came here for the otter experience and it was great from start to finish. Keira obviously loves and cares for the otters an enormous amount and it was clear from her enthusiasm and knowledge of them.
