Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo
If you have already booked your Forest of Dean summer holiday, great! If not, you need to do so very quickly as you are missing out on a beautiful summer holiday.
Making this holiday in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley all the more beautiful is the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo.
Why are they called “Butterflies?”
The quick answer is; Nobody knows! The word “Butterfly” has been in the English language for hundreds of years, so, actually tagging somebody with inventing the word would be impossible to do.
“Butterfleoge” in Ye olde English language meant “butterfly“
Some people think that the name “butter-fly” is a corruption of the word “flutter by” which, when you think about it, that’s exactly what they do, they “flutter by”
Other people like to believe that the word eminates from stories of witches, disguised as butterflies, used to fly in and steal milk and honey. I’m not so sure about that one.
Why am I banging on about Butterflies?
Well, recently, walking through the fields in Spain I came across lots of beautiful butterflies, all sizes and all colours and it got me thinking about our own beautiful British creatures.
I am happy to tell you that, whilst staying at one of our beautiful self catering Forest of Dean lodges, you can, if you wish, go and visit the nearby Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo. Site link.
This has to be one of the most beautiful trips you will ever make. Imagine being able to see so many different varieties of butterflies and in all stages of their life cycle.
Just looking at a butterfly is enough to raise a smile to anyone’s face so, just imagine how happy you’ll be seeing a lot of them.
Please, if you are coming to stay with us in the Forest of Dean lodges, check out the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo website and book yourself a trip that will give you so many, beautiful and happy memeories of a great holiday.
