I’ve recently visited this place with my 3 year old daughter. It’s been too crowded with school trips, kids running everywhere and making this place look very chaotic. Won’t visit again.

Three generations of the family came to the Butterfly Farm on a scorching Saturday morning. What a great time we had. The little grandsons were absolutely enthralled by the thousands of butterflies flying around, especially when they landed on them. We hadn't been for 25...More

what began as a wet and damp day turned into a tropical mass of colour. We got in and straight away we hung up our outdoor clothes, lots of room for pushchairs to be left outside. Inside and wow a photographer’s paradise. Butterflies and moths...More

Out daughter wanted to go her as part of her 21st birthday celebrations. It was great! The butterflies are mesmerising. Do not forget your camera and wear something light as it's very warm and humid.

We visited the butterfly farm on a beautiful day and having been to a few others before and not being too keen on fluttery things I decided to be brave. Where other farms have had a couple of dozen butterflies, this was completely different. There...More

No coffee shop and minimal food, you can get soft drinks and things like ice cream but you need to eat them outside at the picnic tables
