The Castleton House Bed & Breakfast was genuinely lovely and beautiful place for my Husband and I to stay. This was made all the more enjoyable by the attentive yet not intrusive charm of our hostess, Gail. Our room was spacious, warm and comfortable with all the provisions you would expect, and several others as well. Although sadly we did... More

Steve, really kind of you to write such a positive and kind review following on from your stay with us last week. It was good to meet you both and I'm sorry you didn't have much time to see all of Mere due to the lack of available taxi's - good to know though this happens later in the year... More

An excellent B&B in a convenient central location in the pretty town of Mere. Owner Gail couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and the rooms were well furnished, clean and very comfortable. They were very well equipped with bottled water and glasses, wine glasses and bottle opener, magazines and information about where to eat locally. In fact our every... More

Four of us stayed 1 night on a visit to see the impressive autumn colours at Stourhead nearby. The bedrooms were very well appointed with tea and fresh ground coffee facilities,en-suite shower which worked well without any fiddling about and super bedding. There is also a guest lounge where we were able to polish off a nice bottle of wine... More

Thank you so much for writing this great review. It's always lovely having two couples who know each other to stay and I'm glad you were able to enjoy your wine in the upstairs drawing room - it's just how it should be used! Best wishes to you both and hope to see you again if you're down this way.... More

You want a welcoming host, a clean and comfortable room, a lovely breakfast, a park right outside and a great pub across the road then Castleton House is the place to stay. Gail is a very helpful and knowledgeable host who provides a lovely breakfast.

I had the absolute pleasure of staying here on my way from Heathrow to Cornwall and it was the perfect place. Gail's home is very special and her attention to detail second to none. I felt at home instantly and the village of Mere is lovely too. Gail's breakfast was delicious - homemade raspberry and apple dishes and a lovely... More

I'm very happy to recommend this B+B. Castleton House is a beautiful place to stay. Our room was lovely, the breakfasts were excellent and the owners made us feel very much at home. It would be an ideal base for anyone wishing to explore the area, and we hope to stay there again.

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.
