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.
We are open every day between 10.30am and 3pm.
Please remember that butterfly numbers on the wing will be decreasing through November as our butterfly house heads towards its overwintering period.
You may pre-book tickets if you wish by clicking on the green box below or you can purchase them on arrival.
Please see our Plan Your Visit page for details of prices and special parking arrangements through late November and December.
CAN YOU HELP US
During the covid lockdowns our doors have been closed to visitors and we have been very fortunate to have wonderful friends and supporters whose kind donations have helped feed our rescued and resident otters. If you are able to help please follow the

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.
