“ok”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

the museum part was very tired looking, the rides were for younger children, information which could have been put in the leaflet, the gardens were lovely though and the light show was amazing

“Not very good”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We visited this place back in Aug 2010, quite a while ago but i have heard alot hasnt changed.
Firstly it is severely over priced! Over 40 pound for 2 adults and one child. The attractions are out dated and scary. The old toys and gnomes in the garden scared my son. There isnt too much to do r.e rides.
It does have very nice scenery. The gardens and walking around are lovely. Food is over priced again. Overrall not very great!

“Great collection of "old arcade amusements"”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Visited Devon in August when the weather was not so great. Watermouth Castle was only half an hour from where we were staying. Three adults and one toddler - entertainment for all. The adults enjoyed the large collection of bygone arcade amusements and even the toddler enjoyed the working model railway. Outside there was plenty to see but be prepared for the steep climbs as the majority of rides required huffing and puffing to get up the hill to the next one! Really good day though - well worth a look if you are in the area

“Nice place”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This one is fun for older children, 9 years upwards, it has some history that younger kids may get bored with, a good day out but you do need the weather to be kind, food can be pricey so best to take a packed lunch!
