Opening Times & Admission 

We will be open today from 10am to 5 pm. 
It is very informal at this time of year while we are very busy with winter refurbishments, butterfly house planting and a big spring clean. It is "Otters only" although there may be one or two butterflies on the wing if its a bright and sunny day as the first butterflies of the new season have just begun to come out of hibernation. There are lots of chrysalis ready to hatch for visitors to see too in our heated butterfly house.

The feeding times at 11.30am, 2.00pm and 4.00pm are the best times to see and enjoy the otters. 

Dont forget our keepers are on hand to help visitors get the most from their visit, make sure to bring your camera.

We regret dogs are not permitted  (dogs are usually well behaved but the otters go bonkers!)
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.

We are wheelchair friendly but some of the fences around the otter pens are too high to see over while seated so we always 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 hygene reasons always wash your hands after your visit.
