Before you go, purchase your tickets from the companies website, amazing deals, £5.50 each for entrance to 3 of the 4 attractions. Beautiful location, not massive but perfect for a few hours out. Very clean & tidy, friendly staff, butterfly's are beautiful, would highly recommend and would visit again. Suitable for all ages

Decided on a last minute trip on a Bank Holiday. Paid £14 for an adult and 10 year old to do the maze, butterfly zoo and mini golf. My son did the Lazer tag aswell and really enjoyed it. Recommend booking all activities online for a cheaper deal. Would go back there. There is a cafe there and picnic tables.... More

I have just returned from a trip with my 4 & 2 year old daughters and we all absolutely loved it. The butterfly farm, maze and mini golf cost £13 for the 4 of us, and it was worth every penny and more. We had a fab day, kids laughed and giggled their way through the maze and a butterfly... More

We spent time admiring the butterflies, played Marco Polo in the maze, ate our picnic and then had a round of miniature gold...all for just over £6 a head...absolute bargain! The staff were friendly and full of information, we were given identity sheets for the butterflies and the children were given magnifying glasses to study the butterflies and caterpillars. Not...

Been before and would return. Amazing value especially when you book online - butterflies, golf and maze all for £5:50! Butterflies are just lovely. Golf is entertaining for a while, and the maze is really good! Probably wouldn't do the golf and the maze had it not been for the butterfly house which was the main attraction for us, but... More

Spent a pleasant hour here on a rainy afternoon only £2.75 entry (OAP) quite warm and humid inside but that's what you would expect in a butterfly house. Lots of lovely butterflies to see plus lots of information around so you know what you are looking at, they also give you a magnifying glass to search for caterpillars, chrysalis and... More

It was lovely to visit a place with three such contrasting attractions but each a joy in itself. The owner (one of 2 brothers) was on hand to give us a novel history of the maze, the range of butterflies were beautiful and who doesn't like a round of mini golf! There's a very pleasant vibe about this place &... More
