We visited at the end of August 2014 and were lucky to have a nice sunny day to walk round this lovely North Devon attraction full of fun and quirky amusements. It has some lovely rides perfect for toddlers and younger children. There's lots to do and see to fill a whole day. It's quite hilly but how else are... More

We had a lovely day at the Castle, not knowing what to expect we were open minded but thoroughly won over by the Castles charms.. Brilliant attention to detail, very clean not a scrap of litter anywhere. Immaculate gardens and jam packed with animatronics (all working) everywhere! My children 4 and 6 loved the rides which had no massive queues... More

What a brilliant day we all had. From the moment we entered the castle we were captured with all the historic displays and games. The theatre show and the water show were excellent. The family loved all the little barrel novelties around the park. A great day for all of us. We arrived at 10.00 am and left at 4.40... More

Took the whole family the grandparents loved the castle and the historic displays. The vintage pubs games were in working order and good fun. The little ones loved the gnome village and the rides. Cafe decently priced drinks overpriced. Loads of picnic spots. Really good value as can easily spend half a day there.

We visited here following recommendations from others who had been. We were not sure what to expect but thought it might suit everyone in our party. On entering the castle you have to leave your buggy behind whilst it is transported round to the other side. This was a little awkward as my little one is quite heavy and very... More

On arriving here, you queue up and pay at the castle and abandon any pushchairs which are then brought around to the exit for you; a nice touch i thought. The castle itself is great, but a bit dull and scary in places for small children. Would have been better to bi-pass some bits with our young kids. The park... More

It is quite a modern castle so not much history to it. The castle itself is a bit random inside with a selection of random items that represent history and a statue of Henry VIII who had obviously never been there. On entry there were a band made up of robots. So I wasn't keen on the castle itself and... More

great for families of all ages. reasonably priced and lots to do.food good value for money. rides are aimed more at younger children, but its good that everything is included in your admission price apart from the water ballons. these only cost a pound and my kids and hubby had great fun launching them at each other.
