Extremely comfortable, excellent breakfast, charming and helpful owner. Excellent location within easy reach or Stourhead. Opposite good pub/hotel (The George). On road with easy parking. Windows well sound-proofed.

Our last B&B having closed due to retirement we needed to find another top quality bed and breakfast in the area. We had been through Mere a few times and noticed Castleton House B&B a few times and, having looked it up on-line, decided to book it for our next visit to the area. Castleton is a delightful stone building... More

We had a 2 night stay in this beautiful house at the beginning of June and were made to feel very welcome by Gail who was an excellent host. We were in the twin bedded room which had a very large bathroom, comfortable beds and even a fridge containing fresh milk! The quality of the breakfasts was 'second to none'... More

The bed was so comfortable, having a memory foam matterous and a light and airy duvet, it was like heaven. the room was well decorated and equipped with a fridge and even down to water bottles, not that they were needed.

Castleton House is immaculate with beautiful furnishings in the centre of Mere. We stayed for two nights last week-end and had the most delicious cooked breakfast on both mornings, home made jams, marmalade, kippers served up as well as the full English Breakfast. Gail was most enthusiastic to ensure we made the best of our time in the area. There... More

Two double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms in a beautiful house in Mere. We stayed there twice recently, on both occasions for several nights. The reasons for our visits were sad ones, my mother's funeral and then the sorting of her house, but we couldn't have been better looked after. Gail's breakfasts were wonderful, the beds perfect and I have to... More
