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

My father and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Castleton House. Gail (the owner) was really welcoming and gave us fantastic advice about where to walk and dine in Mere. Our room was really spacious, immaculate, beautifully decorated and really comfortable, not to mention the delicious breakfast! Staying at Castleton House really felt like staying in a home.

Hi Alex, Thank you for this lovely review. It was so good to meet you and your Dad; and the recommendation from the Hunter family in Australia made the world seem a very small place. I hope you enjoyed your trip to Cornwall and things weren't too rushed. Good luck with your exams and the rest of your studies. Best... More

My friend and I stayed at Castleton House on a bank holiday weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The B&B itself is lovely, with a welcoming countryside feel to it. The rooms are clean and pleasant and there is a large sitting room and a dining room. The breakfasts offer a wide choice and you certainly never go hungry.... More

Friendly welcome by the owner. Comfortable room with lots of little thoughtful extras in the bathroom. B & B in centre of the town, but not at all noisy. Tasty breakfast. Would certain stay there again.

Our daughter recently moved to live in this lovely small town and we stayed at Castleton House to see her and the, new-to-us, delights of this beautiful area of Wiltshire. We booked the twin room which was most comfortable, especially the beds and pillows, and appreciated the fresh milk in the little 'fridge - something which many larger establishments could... More

I stayed for a night with my Mum and my 1 year old after a cold afternoon visiting Stourhead. Firstly, the location could not be more convenient; just 5 minutes away, and we were able to park directly outside the front door. We received a very warm welcome from Gail and I especially appreciated the welcome for baby who had... More
