Plan Your Visit

To Dartmoor Otters and Buckfast Butterflies

A Great Visit Whatever The Weather!

The Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary has been carefully designed to provide our resident otters with the best possible conditions and our visitors excellent opportunities to see and enjoy them. We also have facilities for the treatment of any sick or injured otters that may be brought to us. It is hoped that having seen and enjoyed our resident otters, and been given an insight into their secret way of life, visitors will be more aware of the plight of otters world-wide, particularly of course our own native British Otter Lutra lutra.
