Hmmm, quite a strange little place really! Very old and dated, stuck in the 1970's, and at £12.75 per adult and £10.75 for our three year old very overpriced. The finale for us was the light and organ show which claimed 'Once seen, never forgotten!!'. They weren't wrong! At the end of it there was a 3 song medley devoted to the war, complete with Union flag waving and simulated bombings!! (read more)

We visited about a week ago. We felt it was very over priced . our children are 2 and 4.The height restrictions seemed unnessary on some of the small rides which was not explained on entry that some they would not be able to use. virtually all the machines in the castle had money slots. What an expensive day out even the ice creams were expensive!! (read more)

We have visited Watermouth castle for the last 3 years & have booked to visit again this year. I though that my childre who are now 5 & 7 would be too old for it this year but when I mentioned it they begged me to take them back again this year. I would recommend this to anyone who has younger children. Plenty to do, clean tidy & the staff are very welcoming. It's a lovely day out! (read more)

we had an apartment at the Watermouth Castle and therefore not only had a great base for the area but had free access to the castle museum and park everyday, which as it rained for over half the holiday was a godsend. our girls are 4 and 6 and were ideally suited to the amusements - any older and they would probably have been totally bored and we would not have gone if they were any older as several reviews i read before we committed seemed to confirm. This is not suited to the worldly wise... (read more)

We recently went whilst holidaying in Devon. It is a rather strange and dated place but this is what made it unique! We all loved it with ages of 2yrs, 4yrs, 5 yrs, 9 yrs and adults mixed male and female. There are certainly no white knuckle rides so i could imagine teenagers may not rate it. Mini golf was great and the grounds that the whole place is set in is wonderfully maintained and interesting the whole way round. We probably spent about 5 hours there which was just enough time. ...

Myself,husband and 11 year old son visited watermouth castle, and thoroughly enjoyed the 5 hours we spent there, my son could have spent longer. The castle and grounds are very well maintained and easy to get around, there are interactive attractions throughout which kept my son entertained looking for them. There are antique slot machines throughout the grounds which do not cost the earth,no more than 10p a time, the only other expense after the admission fee are for food and drinks,however...

Myself,husband and 11 year old son visited watermouth castle and thoroughly enjoyed the 5 hours that we spent there, my son could have stayed longer ! the castle and grounds are very well maintained.

I visited the park last week with my family and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The park is geared to children but do make it enjoyable for adults and older teenagers. It covers quite a large area but you do not realise how far you are walking as they have loads of little boxes with mechanical scenes in side as well as talking gnomes. Sounds silly but it keeps the kids excited and our 14 year old even enjoyed hunting for them. Both inside the castle and in the park they have old fashioned... (read more)

A wonderful place for the under 9's. My daughter loved Gnome Land and the dancing fountain show. A fun day out and an even better place to stay.
The apartments are authentic old castle, but warm and inviting fully equipt, the I could have happily have made a full 4 course meal with use of the items from the kitchen.
Heated swimming pool was a major bonus and having the unopened park availble to residents was fantastic even without the rides operational.
The local area has some outstanding... (read more)

We visited Watermouth Castle with my daughter who is almost 2. There was one ride that she was able to go on - a water ride - she was terrified of the puffs of air that it spat out - there were lots and lots of coin operated machines - although they were not expensive in themselves - we were unable to get all of them to work. our daughter was unable to go on any of the other rides and so coin machines were all that was left. The park opened at 11, although the rides didn't officially open... (read more)
