Come and get up-close and personal with our ‘unusual creatures'. Your family can discover the magic and beauty of our collection of reptiles, spiders and other creepy crawlies. You will be able to learn about their natural habitat, hold Spot and Stripe our ball pythons, feel the many legs of Millie the Giant African Millipede, watch how Joanna the Ackie Monitor hunts for food and have Keeley our Chile Rose Tarantula crawl across your hand. Of course, you may just want to watch from a distance and that’s fine too.
It's easy to reach Cofton Country by car. Leave the M5 motorway at junction 30. Take the A379 sign-posted Dawlish and after about 30 minutes, having passed through Kenton, Starcross and the small harbour village of Cockwood, the Park is half a mile on the left.
By public transport
The nearest train stations are Starcross, Dawlish Warren and Dawlish. From there you will be able to catch a bus which passes our entrance. For further advise on public transport please contact our reception team who will be happy to advise you on your best option.
