Chestnut Centre

Chapel-en-le-Frith, High Peak, Derbyshire, SK23 0QS
Tel: 01298 814099   Fax: 01298 816213

Set on a steep hillside in Derbyshire, the Chestnut centre is (as far as we know) the only place in Britain to see Giant Brazilian otters. The otter enclosures, also including native British, American river and Asian short-clawed, are at the bottom of the hill in a very attractive wooded valley. The enclosures themselves are all of a good size with room for the otters but great views for the visitors. Also down there are red squirrels and a collection of owls.
