“You will always find treasure near a Castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Much thanks to Carol for taking in our Dive (The Wreckin Crew) Gang after our expedition to Lundy was curtailed by the weather. The lodges are beyond perfect and we were made so welcome by Holly and the rest of your staff. One of the question on tripadvisor is Sleep Quality
and cleanliness. Its gotta be a big 5*!! Perfect. Big thanks and see you again.

Room Tip: We were a group of divers with a minibus full of expensive dive equipment, Secure parking is always...

Completely love Watermouth Lodges. The staff are lovely, accommodation is perfect, food is delicious, swimming pools, sauna and lodges are kept to a high standard. We cant fault this place.
We have been visiting at least once every year as a family for the past 15+ years. The last 4 years we have returned just as a couple and took along some friends last month. They were totally inlove with the place as much as we are. This time we treated ourselves and stayed in the seaview with the hot tub. Couldn't fault it. So luxurious!
Please carry on doing everything you are already doing! We cant wait to return next year. If we had our way we would be practically living there!
Thank you for a excellent weekend away and for the last 15+ years. We look forward to staying with you next year.

Room Tip: All lodges are beautiful and to a very high standard.

just returned from weekend break,stayed in newly refurbished lodge,and it was very roomy,4 adults and 2 kids and still plenty of space.lovely view over castle grounds from our balcony.very quiet and peaceful.the boys loved the zipwire.have stayed in lodges before but never as big as this one ,can imagine in summer months it would be very cool as plenty of windows.unfortunately weather got cooler the weekend we were there .ate in restaurant on 1st night which was a good meal.but sat night drove into ilfracombe and got a Chinese takeaway from millennium house which was great,on the sunday we stopped of at quackers in combe martin and had the best carvery ever,seems like always eating but we did have busy days out inbetween.would definitely return but hopefully for a week next time.

This is my third visit to Watermouth Lodges (this time there were eight of us in the party) and stayed in Amberwood 39. The lodge was very well equipped with a nice view, although I think it could have benefitted from some tlc with regards the general cleaning (sweet wrappers from previous occupiers behind bedside cabinets and next to bed and also there was a smell of cigarette smoke when we first went into the lodge(?). The outdoor pool was closed as just out of season so we used the indoor one which was lovely. We also ate in the Watermouth Inn a few nights and the food is of excellent quality and great value. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The weather was good to us so we were able to go on the beach - Woolacombe Sands is a lovely sandy beach. All in all, we had a lovely relaxing time and will be back again next year!!!

Great time had at watermouth lodges.
The lodge was clean and spacious 3 bedrooms including ensuite.
Pools were clean and warm.
Staff were all very friendly and attended to any problems.
Whether you are looking for a holiday to explore the area or just relax and enjoy the sun at pool or sitting outside your lodge this is ideal.

Had read a lot of the reviews of watermouth lodges before we went and we were a bit nervous!! I hope this is an honest and helpful review for the budget Pines lodges,
To start the park is situated right inbetween Ilfracombe & Combe martin ( 5 mins drive either way) and about 15-20 mins from the fabulous Woolacombe beach ( a must), Watermouth harbour and the south coast path are 5 mins walk away,
The park is quiet and clean with great views over to south wales, it has 2 pools The indoor one is a bit nicer than the outdoor, The pub/clubhouse is good and it always had seats available, the food is good value pub food fayre (maybe avoid the curry night poor value for money)
The staff on site were really nice and helpful and made you very welcome.
The pines lodge we stayed in is the budget lodge and to be honest it showed. It is very small (prob smaller than a static caravan) but as its only a base for us us 2 adults 2 Children & a dog we managed,
I now come to my only real gripe - The bathroom!! It really needs ripping out and a new one put in!! The bath has brown rusty looking marks on the side of it, the shower screen is not the best and setting the the shower via the mixer tap is an art form,theres a tile missing on floor behind the door looks like its collecting dirt, We cleaned the bathroom with antiseptic wipes but it never really felt clean in there.

I would definately go back to watermouth lodges but book one of the better lodges (which looked really nice)
I

Room Tip: book the best lodge you can afford, the budget models really are basic.

I honestly think the people who have moaned about this place must have stayed somewhere else?!

We stayed in lodge Amberwood 38, which was clean, spacious and well equipped. It has a twin room, double and second double with en-suite shower and toilet room. The main bathroom had a lovely jacuzzi bath and the lounge/kitchen diner was a great family space. I can honestly say I couldn't think of much more I would have wanted/expected from the accommodation.

The on-site facilities we found fine and the staff were always helpful. Unfortunately the weather didn't treat us well enough to brave the outdoor pool, but there are so many things to do in the surrounding areas, I don't think we would have had a chance to do everything we wanted to do in 2 weeks, let alone 1!!

All in all, this place certainly gets the thumbs up from us!!
