Having stayed in Watermouth Castle itself back in the early 80's, this was a real trip down Memory Lane for me. There were lots of features which were there then, eg the train set, the 2p slot machines and the revolving room. I especially enjoyed seeing Goosey Gander's show again and the musical fountains; unchanged since the 80's I think!... More

Although closed for the season you can still take in the scenery and well worth it ,the car park remains open as does the fore front of the castle so we could walk about ,Well worth it on a clear cold day

This was my fourth visit to Watermouth, always for Christmas. It didn't disappoint. Even a small illuminated Christmas Tree in the window, plus a Card from the staff. The dog friendly accommodation was comfortable, warm and well-equipped. Excellent on-site Restaurant where we ate every night. I was taken ill whilst there and the staff were marvellous. Booked an appointment for... More

Although this attraction is rather steep if you're visiting as a group, it is worth it. I dont believe the adults should be charged as much as they are and they should do some locals discount. But nevertheless i would recommend as my nieces and nephews (aged 3,4,5,6) have loved growing up visiting here. Definitely a full day out! Perfect... More

A very well organised and well kept place. We enjoyed the castle greatly, the staff were friendly and kids are well catered for. Would go for a second visit.

My sole purpose of visiting Ilfracome was to visit Watermouth Castle and treat my children (7 and 4) to my experience of Watermouth 24 years ago when I was just 4 myself. Watermouth did not disappoint! The village is looking tired now (not unexpected) but is clearly well maintained. The rides are perfect for young children and the whole day... More

Visited the castle for the day and all had great time. Haven't been for over ten years but it was as good as we remembered. Great rides for the kids! Very cheap to get in and spent the day wondering around the grounds. Loads to do and see and will be back next time we're in Devon. Had the best... More
