After a morning on the beach, and with the tide coming in, we decided to visit the Tamar Otter centre after seeing a recommendation in the visitors' book at our holiday home. We were very glad we did. It was very quiet when we arrived, but the staff were friendly and welcoming.
We were just in time for the 2.30 p.m. birds of prey talk, which my 5 yr old daughter and 2 yr old son both found interesting. Both my daughter and I had a chance to hold a beautiful Harris Hawk called Skylar, one of my daughter's highlights of the holiday!
The otter talk at about 3.00 p.m. was also very interested - my son really took an interest in watching the various pens of otters feeding and diving in and out of their pools.
After the talks, we were free to wander around the pleasant woodland grounds, with Fallow and Muntjac deer roaming free and happy to feed from your hand.
We only spent about 2 hours there, and we were probably lucky that it was so quiet as it was a couple of days before the local schools broke up for Summer.
I'd certainly recommend a trip here if the tides, weather or sunburn mean you'd like to skip the beach for a morning or afternoon!
