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

Thanks very much for writing this lovely review. I so enjoyed meeting you and some of your family and was only sorry that you were down here for such a sad occasion. Hopefully the dust is beginning to settle now and it won't be long before you have your daughter's wedding. Perhaps meet again if you have call to come... 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. Gail is a great host, in a lovely house, working hard... More

I would highly recommend it for comfort, friendliness and cleanliness. We had a hearty home cooked breakfast.and were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. ..... More

A visit to Stourhead Gardens is always a wonderful experience,but together with a one night stay at Castelton House made it a truly complete day.
