The South Devon Railway

The multi-award winning South Devon Railway is one of Devon’s and the West Country’s best loved tourist attractions and is the longest established steam railway in the south west, celebrating over 50 years in preservation.

The SDR is a seven mile former Great Western Railway branch line, built in 1872, which runs along the stunning valley of the River Dart between Buckfastleigh and Totnes. We run steam trains with heritage rolling stock and offer a wonderful all day, all weather attraction for families and people of all ages.

Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies

At Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies, you can see and learn about tropical butterflies in the specially designed habitat of which you become a part. As you see the butterflies, you will feel the rainforest atmosphere that they enjoy as you see their amazing life cycle unfold.

There are three species of otter to see too, our native British otter, playful Asian short clawed otters and the large North American river otters who love to show off.

Totnes Rare Breeds Farm​

Come and stroke the owls, feed the red squirrels and meet the friendly hedgehogs at the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm. What began as a collection of farmyard rare breeds has gradually extended. You won’t find smaller sheep than the Ouessants, or more fantastic chickens. In the small animals’ corner, you can hold a guinea pig on your lap, feel the smooth skin of our corn snake and watch the crazy antics of the chipmunks.

Alongside these, you can also get close to the endangered wildlife of the English countryside, making this much more than just a petting farm.

Totnes
Rare Breeds Farm​

Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies is located at Buckfastleigh station; the award winning Totnes Rare Breeds Farm is at the other end of the line adjacent to Totnes Riverside station. Buy joint tickets to visit all three in one day or the South Devon Railway and Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies or Totnes Rare Breeds Farm.
