Well worth a visit, several species of butterfly, large and small. The owner gave us a great talk explaining the workings of the butterfly house and its occupants, very relaxing, well - up to the point where he bought out the giant stick insect.

We loved it here. I used to come here as a little girl so I had a bit of nostalgia. It isn't really big but ut has a lot of character. There's a maze with a questionnaire too. I think it's perfect for young families.

Severely overpriced attraction. Literally just a small glass house with some plants and butterflies. I would not recommend.
