In September 2011, said about Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre - Cornwall

An enchanting place to visit, both we and our 2 young children were captivated by this special place. We visited whilst on holiday, twice, the first time early on, and the second time on our last day before returning home - we gave the kids the choice of where they wanted to go and they were unanimous (for a change!) in their choice. The animals are clearly very well cared for, and the whole place is so arranged that there always plenty on view. Lovely lunches in the cafe too. We will be back next year, keep up the good work.
