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

We recently had a lovely 2 night break in Mere staying at Castleton House. The room was spacious with everything you'd expect to find. The house is very beautiful and the room for breakfast is something special! Peter and Gail were lovely hosts, giving us lots of advice on Stourhead and the local area, as well as their suggestions for... 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. The Guest house is well situated just a minutes walk to the shops and public houses that do food.... More

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

Our stay was perfect in every way. We received a very warm welcome from Gail and Peter. We stayed in the twin room, which was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. A scenic walk in the village was recommended to us and we enjoyed the view of Mere and the surrounding countryside. We went to the Walnut tree pub in the... 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

We stayed at the Castleton House for one night and were welcomed by Gail and her husband graciously. The room was lovely and clean; the bed very very comfortable; and the breakfast simply delicious. What a wonderful experience and super-nice people! :) Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. It was great meeting you both and I hope the furniture you came down to collect looks lovely in your home. I wonder how your visit to Stonehenge went, I've yet to hear from someone who has visited the new 'Visitor Centre', something I must do myself soon.... More

Loved it! Very warm and picturesque! Must say it was idyllic. I don't remember the owner's name but she was very hospitable and she made it feel very homey. The town was adorable and we went across the street to the George inn for dinner and it was amazing. Will stay here again.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Castleton House. Despite the reason for the trip being rather a sad one as we were attending a funeral, we found our stay to be relaxed and comfortable, a home from home, as well as great value for money.
