Used to visit here as a child many years ago so when I took my own family I wasn't expecting to see that very little hard changed,other than the admission price,quite shabby and dilapidated.

This attraction is well worth a visit if you have children who are infant/junior school age. Remember to pay for a group photo at the café so you can all visit again very cheaply. Although some attractions/rides may close in bad weather, there is still enough to see and do and of course the castle itself is under cover. May... More

Fantastic park with something for everyone! One of the best attractions we have been to after 4 years of staying in woolacombe. History, thrills, gardens, views. This place has the lot. It is quite small but a lot packed in there. 1 downside. It's a pretty hilly park.

Watermouth Castle and Park is a must for keeping the children occupied, especially if bored with the beach. It's a fun day out with exhibits within the castle before you make it into the grounds. Definitely no trouble spending the day here, take a picnic as there are plenty of places to sit.

We're local to the area but hadn't been here for years so recently went with our 2 year old. It was so much better than I had remembered! It was October when we went and they had made a real effort to decorate for Halloween. There is a real old fashioned charm to the whole place with things to see... More

We've stayed in the castle every year since I was a little girl and I now bring my family here - it's so magical just being in a beautiful castle and then having the harbour outside, having the pool and having access (free) to the grounds where the theme park is and the dungeons, which are great fun! It's located... More

Perfect place for any age or party size. Perfect for little ones with a little queue free theme park. Inside the castle is crazy I assume the owner is more than a little eccentric. Very odd collection of history inside. Beautiful gardens, well kept and reasonably priced. Staff were amazing.
