Was clean and tidy on arrival.
Indoor pool was too cold for our one-year old to use which was a shame. Soft play part a bit disappointing.
Good location and nice vista from the lodge.
In general, we enjoyed and the lodge was fine, just needed a bit more attention to detail to make it a more comfortable experience.
Devon. In total we occupied 5 lodges and these varied
in size and layout. I stayed in what was called Amberwood and described as luxury.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and the location of the lodges. I think though more attention to detail is needed. Our lodge had vertical blinds which were flimsy and in part broken. It was also clear that
some items needed replacement such as a broken clock and inadequate equipment such as frying pan.
Although the lodge had been cleaned it was only on the surface and closer inspection showed dirt and dust.
Other members of the family stayed in a Redwood lodge which had a second bedroom. This smelled of urine and it was fortunate that no one needed to sleep in it.
We used the indoor pool and found the changing areas dirty and in need of a good clean and update.
Based on this we would not return to Watermouth. We
have stayed in lodges in Eye Kettleby and have found a totally different standard to Devon.
The food in the bar is of good quality and quite varied, the staff have always been very friendly and helpful.
It would be difficult to find a more perfect location for exploring North Devon and the view from the lodges over the Bristol Channel are second to none.
We have already booked for next August.

The lodge itself was perfectly kept and all the extra touches like complimentary robes, slippers and imported bedding really gave it that luxurious edge. The 2-person jacuzzi was great fun, although VERY noisy and the shower cubicle was huge!
The indoor pool, spa bath and sauna was empty every afternoon between 2pm and 4pm so we had the place to ourselves.
The bar and food prices were very reasonable and our neighbours ate their every evening but brought their plates back to their lodge covered in foil and ate on their verandah, both said it was lovely food.
Will be returning very soon!

They were clean when we arrived hoever not again for the whole duration of our 2 week stay by which point we were itching to lay our hands on a hoover.
No dvd player but Tiny pop channel available 24hrs which the kids liked far to much.
Very little water pressure though had to rinse hair with jug of water they could really do with looking into this.
On site they have a resteraunt /bar which is excellent value for money feed a family of 4 for £16 and the food was delicious and worth everypenny, ideal as you would have to travel to eat anywhere else, plenty of choice we ate here most nights.
The bar is part of the reseraunt great for kids as they have a tuck shop attatched so you can have your wine or beer and they can have a drink from the tuchk shop fridge from 20p per drink and when theyre good penny sweets too.
There is a large decking area sheltered from the wind from here you can see the adventure playground and the outside pool, both perfect for small children, pool was like a bath and no deeper than a meter. The inside pool was fine but quite cold and got very busy at times as smaller than the pool outside.
Overal staff were excellent, couldnt fault the complex maybe would have upgraded lodge but ours was fine, North Devon wasnt for us but if you like this area this place is a must :)

The only areas for improvement are easily addressed: the indoor pool was dirty first thing in the morning, the spa was almost empty of water and asking for 50p, which was irritating and a little cheesy, and there was a severe lack of information about the local area which would have been very useful to us and easy to provide by the Park.
For example - a local map with locations of foodshops, the opening times of the local tourist information office (only 2 hours a day in outside the summer season we discovered)and the location of the nearest A&E would all have been useful or reassuring. We got the impression that this info would be normally available in Reception, which was permanently closed as it was out of peak season.
Other than that, lovely little place and good base for exploring the area.

Staff were friendly on the surface but if you went to buy anything at the bar or shop they would simply serve you while carrying on their own conversations and you always felt you were in the way - consequently the second week we didn't use the bar area at all. The swimming pools were good though but the play equipment was a bit young for our 13 and 9 year olds. I don't think we'll be back.
