The Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary is situated just outside the southern border of Dartmoor National Park between Exeter and Plymouth and is easily reached just off the A38 Devon Expressway at the Dart Bridge junction. There are large brown tourist signs guiding visitors from the junction to our car park. The journey from Exeter or Plymouth by road takes about half an hour and from the Torbay area about three quarters of an hour.
Its is also possible to visit us by rail by travelling to Totnes main line station and then taking a steam train from Totnes, travelling on the South Devon Steam Railway from Totnes to Buckfastleigh. The South Devon Steam Railway is adjacent to the Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary and there is a short two minute walk from the platform. This is proving a very popular trip, with discounted tickets available for visitors who visit both the otters and butterflies and ride on the steam train.
