Get ready for an enchanting playtime like no other as our local theme park, Watermouth Castle prepares to unveil its latest additions: Hobbledown Bay, a Pixie Role Play Village, and The Mining Village.


Watermouth Castle is only a few minutes' drive from Newberry Valley and has kept many families entertained over the years. Built in 1825 this formidable building was almost derelict when it was purchased by Richard Haines in 1977. With determination and hard work, he turned it into one of North Devon's top family attractions.

Now owned by the UK-based Escapade Group the exciting news is that with planning permission now granted, the £850k project will breathe new life into the amusement park, replacing outdated areas with bespoke play equipment designed to spark creativity and adventure.


Nestled within the Castle grounds, these magical outdoor play areas promise to ignite children’s imaginations and create unforgettable moments for families.

And for even more excitement, the Big River ride has undergone a spectacular transformation, boasting new animatronics, boats, and enhanced crazy golf.
