Nothing in the promotional material, or the reviews I'd read, prepared me for the strange world of Watermouth Theme Park. It is a Victorian stately home built to resemble a castle, with grounds, gardens, rides and attractions. To be fair, the blurb promises a 'unique and magical' experience - but don't they all? The strangeness begins when you realise there... More

Ok, this was our first visit here which was very easy to find. Take lots of changed as there are lots of slot machines and when I say lots there are! Children from 6 downwards would love it.

7yrs old & 4yrs old loved it. As a grown up I found it quite a strange place. The kids loved all the rides. Would definitely go early during school holidays as we didn't queue for anything up until about midday when suddenly the place filled up. Not sure it's great value for money. Worth a visit but definitely take... More

Really pleased with our day here. They have paid so much attention to detail it's staggering. Everywhere you look there is something else to see or do. Children thoroughly enjoyed the day and you can't tell how good it will be until you get there.

Kids really enjoyed all the activities - there is so much to see and do. A lot of stuff is hands on which really helped keep the kids (11 and 8) interest going. The exhibition / curiosities part at the entrance to the castle (after you have paid) is a little weird and some is a bit scary for smaller... More

We were recommended a visit to Watermouth Castle during our recent stay in Combe Martin and we weren't disappointed! My daughter is 6 and was the perfect age to enjoy all of the activities available, unlike many other theme parks where she is restricted by height. The whole experience was engaging and we'll presented. The gardens were beautifully maintained and... More

Definitely worth a visit. The park is so beautiful and the rides are fun. There are lots of interactive things to do, lots of buttons to press. I think the adults found it as much fun as the younger children.

Went here when I was a child and decided to visit with our 3 year old. Usually he runs around looking at everything and is done but not here. He loved every minute. He was talk enough for most rides, his favourites being the cooking pots and tube slide. My husband enjoyed the air cannons and became very competitive. We... More
