Take your time, remember your ticket allows re-entry throughout the day. So should the otters be at rest or you need refreshments after enjoying the butterflies feel free to come back later. Don’t forget the otters are fed at 11.30am, 2.00pm and 4.00pm.
Dont forget as a matter of good health and hygiene where animals and wildllife are concerned wash your hands after your visit.
Make a day of it...
While at Buckfastleigh enjoy a scenic steam train ride alongside the River Dart aboard the South Devon Steam Railway discounted joint tickets are available from our reception and the South Devon Railway ticket offices.
For a full day’s trip, combine three south Devon attractions on one ticket - purchase discounted tickets to travel from Otters and Butterflies to the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm using the Steam Train. This "triple ticket" is available from our reception and also the South Devon Railway booking offices at Buckfastleigh and Totnes. This is a full day out for all the family and we suggest you give yourself plenty of time to fit everything in as there are plenty of things to do!
There is also a Riverside Walk beside the River Dart along with a children's play area and gtardens and grounds to be enjoyed. These facilities are to be found on the South Devon Railway site. Ticket holders have free access via the gate in the car park adjacent to the bottom of the footbridge crossing the railway line.
