We very much enjoyed our stay in this B&B. With its two rooms connected by a gallery it is perfectly suited for families. Parents of children under 3 may be challenged by the luxurious breakfast room.

Lovely B&B. Our double was perfect, a good size room, well equipped and well furnished. Also fantastic breakfast, plenty of choice and a very helpful and accommodating owner. Couldn't have asked for more!

The B&B in Mere is in walking distance to restaurants and shops but very quiet. It is perfect if you need a place to stay for visiting Bath, Salisbury and Stonehenge. It is comfortable and especially the shower is perfect compared to all other showers we saw in the UK. Gail and her husband are very friendly and have tips... More

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

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.
