Due to a large special event at our site we have no on site parking on the following dates: November 20th, 21st, 26th-28th, December 2nd-6th, 9th-13th, 15th-23rd. There is a free park and ride service from River Dart Country Park,Ashburton TQ13 7NP. Look for the signs for the Polar Express event to use this free service. Alternatively there are car parks within the town of Buckfastleigh that are just a few minutes walk from our door. We would recommend this latter option to give visitors more flexibility with timings for arrival and departure.
We are open for "Otter Experiences" throughout the year but pre-booking is essential.
We regret dogs are not permitted ( the very hot humid butterfly house is totally unsuitable for all dogs who get very distressed in a very short time. Also in the otter areas the presence of dogs causes upset and stress in our resident otter groups.) . However we have a large car park with shady areas (come early) and a lovely walk beside the river Dart where your dog can run and swim. Your ticket allows re entry throughout the day giving you the opportunity to leave someone with your dog at all times while it remains outside. If you have an assistance dog we are always happy to dog-sit your dog for you in our reception while you visit so please bring a friend to help you during your visit. There is no charge for your friend.
We are wheelchair friendly, but some of the fences around the otter pens are too high to see over while seated and some pathways a little narrow. So we ask those using wheelchairs to chat to our keepers who will help you find the best vantage points.
Don't forget we always advise where animals and wildlife are concerned for good health and hygiene reasons always wash your hands after your visit.
