Buckfast Butterflies & Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary

The Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary has been carefully designed to provide our resident otters with the best possible conditions and our visitors excellent opportunities to see and enjoy them. We also have facilities for the treatment of any sick or injured otters that may be brought to us. It is hoped that having seen and enjoyed our resident otters, and been given an insight into their secret way of life, visitors will be more aware of the plight of otters world-wide, particularly of course our own native British Otter Lutra lutra. Buckfast Butterflies and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary offers a great, enjoyable, educational experience. Wander around the butterfly farm and see new butterflies emerge in tropical surroundings. See the otters swimming underwater in a specially built glass enclosure. Follow the otter keeper around at feeding times. Learn about the otter, its recreational and family life whatever the weather.

Its is also possible to visit us by rail by travelling to Totnes main line station and then taking a steam train from Totnes, travelling on the South Devon Steam Railway from Totnes to Buckfastleigh. The South Devon Steam Railway is adjacent to the Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary and there is a short two-minute walk from the platform. This is proving a very popular trip, with discounted tickets available for visitors who visit both the otters and butterflies and ride on the steam train.
