We spent one night in the beautiful attic room. Gail made us feel welcome and at home right from the beginning. She filled us in on the house and area and recommended us to walk to the top of a high hill with a fantastic view of the surrounding area. We took several great pictures. We had dinner at a...

Thank you so much for writing this great review. We really enjoyed having you both to stay and I'm so pleased dinner on Saturday night was a success, I need to go there again myself. Hope all goes well in Switzerland and if you're passing this way again we might meet up. Best wishes to you both, Gail

Castleton House is an excellent b&b in the centre of the village of Mere. The house is tastefully furnished and the gardens beautifully kept. The room was not enormous but it was comfortable, especially the bed which is the main thing. Gail, who runs the b&b, was welcoming and charming and went out of her way to make my stay...

We were given a very warm welcome by the owners who had thought of everything to make our one night stay comfortable. The attic room was newly decorated and spotless, the bed was comfortable and there were so many little touches that showed the owners values their guests- a fridge with a pint of milk, tea tray with Earl Grey...

Stayed for one night in the attic room, very comfortable bed, nicely decorated, modern bathroom, thoughtful touches in the room. The rest of the house is imposing and decorated like a stately home, very appealing and restful. Gail is very welcoming and genuinely interested in guests and has interesting choices for breakfast with many homemade fresh and tasty recipes. Situated...

Terrific location in a small town. Plenty of street parking. I was warmly greeted and shown to a very comfortable room. Gail filled me in on the house and area.

Would thoroughly recommend a stay at Castleton. The accommodation is clean, tidy and very well presented. We were invited to use the main drawing room, perfect for pre-dinner drinks with family and friends.. Gail, the wonderfully friendly proprietor, makes you feel immediately at ease and so very welcome. The breakfast was delicious and consisted of locally sourced produce and ingredients...

Gail, our charming hostess, made us very welcome and comfortable in her beautiful family home. A home-made breakfast which made it difficult to leave the table and a lovely garden for fine days - we were lucky! - and a sitting room for our use in inclement weather helped to make this a delightful home from home.
