The B&B us well situated in small village with all the shops surrounding that you could possibly need. The staff are very well mannered, and made us feel very welcome from the moment we stepped though the door. The house though, it was a beautiful, very old fashioned features which look really well maintained, it was like stepping back in... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castleton House and would recommend it to anyone. It was very comfortable and the breakfasts were outstanding with everything being homemade! We will certainly stay there in the future.

Last week I stayed some days at Castleton House. It is a real nice place to stay, a lovely house, a great ensuite bedroom and in the morning most tasteful breakfasts. The host, Mrs. Gail Garbutt made me feel at home and was very helpful with touristic information. Too much to see in just a couple of days so I... More

Hello Ann, Thank you for writing us such a lovely review. It was nice to meet you and I'm so glad you enjoyed your time here and visiting Wilton House and your second day at Stourhead. It would be lovely to see you here again when perhaps you might have time to discover Bath or the beautiful coast in Dorset... More

A truly characterful house set within a beautiful location, ran by equally charming people. After hearing that I would be leaving my room before breakfast was served, Gail (an owner), made me a pre-packed breakfast to take with me - an absolute lifesaver that gave me the time I needed that day and an incredibly thoughtful gesture. With such thoughtful... More

Hi Sam, thanks for taking the time to write this review. It was nice meeting you briefly and I am sorry that your 6.30 am leaving time prevented you from having a cooked breakfast here - so pleased that the breakfast in a bag option helped. It would be great to meet up again if you're down this way, in... More

We were welcomed into a comfortable home as friends. Nothing was too much trouble, including the off-road parking. We slept well after the suggestion of climbing Castle Hill, and enjoyed breakfast. An exemplary B+B.

Thank you for writing me such a good review. It was nice meeting you last week and hope the drive home went well. So glad you made the walk to the top of Castle Hill behind us, not only does it keep out the noise of the A303 away, but I always think it's perfect after a long drive to... More

We arrived to a very warm welcome. Room very cosy & comfortable with all home comforts. Excellent home cooked breakfast & lots on the menu. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & only a short drive to Stourhead NT property, perfect for a day out .

Alison, so kind of you to write this lovely review. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope Stourhead lived up to all your expectations, I have to say that's it's spectacular in the autumn too - October being the best month. Good to meet you and I hope perhaps to see you again. Best wishes, Gail More

I received a warm welcome at Castleton House which is situated in the heart of the village of Mere and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a stopover when travelling or better still a longer stay to explore this interesting and beautiful area. I will certainly stay here in the future.

Stayed 2 nights in this lovely house. Rooms were very comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome by Gail. Breakfasts were great for two hungry cyclists and there was no problem dealing with our dietary requests. Found Castleton House via the www.bedsforcyclists.co.uk web site and secure bike parking wasn't a problem. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review for us. I really enjoyed having you both to stay, it's always nice to chat away with other cyclists. Hope the journey down to Bournemouth went well and you're still enjoying your tandem. With best wishes and thanks again, Gail More

A very warm welcome, and a large clean comfortable room in small town with good options for meals. A great location for walking and exploring the Wiltshire countryside and NT laces. Breakfast was the icing on the cake, we look forwrd to staying again one day.

My partner and I stayed one night, a Saturday. We received a very warm welcome from Gail when we arrived. She immediately mentioned a special request I had made when booking, which was a pleasant surprise as I had made the booking several months in advance. Gail gave us a tour of the house which is really well decorated and... More
