Opening Times & Admission

May 5th, 6th and 7th is a special event weekend in conjunction with the South Devon Railway, a Day Out with Thomas the Tank Engine.
Special all inclusive admission applies on these days.
Please see Southdevonrailway.org for full details


The feeding times at 11.30 am, 2.00pm and 4.00pm are the best times to see and enjoy the otters.
Visits are very informal at this time of year and our keepers Chloe, Kiera and Tim will be on hand to talk about the otters and our conservation work at feeding time.

 We are  in the process of pruning and planting out the butterfly house and involved in cleaning and refurbs for the coming spring, we apologise for any disturbance during your visit. 

We are open for "Otter Experiences" throughout the year but pre-booking is essential.

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

Joint return ticket to Totnes with South Devon Railway

(please check with the South Devon Railway for train times) 

Senior Citizens
Children 3-15 years

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.
