Escapade Group has acquired Watermouth Castle, a unique visitor attraction with holiday accommodation near Ilfracombe in Devon.
Watermouth Castle has been developed into one of the West Country’s premier family tourist attractions by the former owners, who took over the business in 1977. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Grade II listed castle has stunning views over Watermouth Harbour and the North Devon coastline. The Castle accommodates holiday apartments and the indoor element of the visitor attraction, whilst the outdoor theme park includes a wide range of play areas, rides and attractions.
Richard Farley, Director of Escapade, comments: “We are excited to have secured this prime visitor attraction which rarely come to the market. It has been successfully operated by the Haines family since 1977 and our plan is to continue to trade this leisure facility in a similar fashion whilst also investing in further attractions.”
Watermouth is Escapade's first attraction outside of Greater London and fits with its growth strategy to acquire and develop both new and existing family attractions in unique locations.
