Every time we visit North Devon visiting Watermouth Castle is obligatory and on most vists there's something new - this time the softball water cannon which was excellent. However, more care should be spent on the upkeep of the existing facilities. The first room you go in used to have a gentleman telling you about all sorts of trivia which was riveting - now its just a poorly animated robot music show. I lost my money in three games that did not work. The light/fountain show which used to be the star attraction is now poor with some on the talking and music tinny and hard to understand. In the cellar a hand was obviously broken off a figure and wedged against his face. The barrels as you go around are getting the worst for wear. The mushrooms in the woodland that originally produced nice birdsong now only emit a horrible static. On a positive the grounds are very well maintained. So please wake up Watermouth and get the basics right as a priority. You have a wonderful venue but if action is not taken you will certainly see a drop in your visitor numbers, especially as it is now so expensive to get in.
