Great place to stay, very well kept and clean. Comfortable bed and lovely en-suite. Fantastic outside space to eat in the summer. Couldn't have asked for more in such a beautiful location and with such lovely hosts.

Beautiful B&B with excellent surroundings. Room had everything we needed, and such a great location for a relaxing countryside getaway. Gail (the host) was so accommodating (and a great cook!). And to top it all off - the weather was ideal! Will most certainly visit again.

We stopped here with our 10 month old, and a plan to visit the nearby safari park. With plans to visit the safari park covid-scuppered, we decided to stay anyway and catch up with friends. I'm so glad we did, this is a gem of a B&B, the host is warm and friendly, and the room was one of the best we've stayed in (and we've stayed in a lot). I wouldn't hesitate in recommending. We had a 10 month old with us, and Gail was only too happy to help accommodate him with a breakfast and a little bag of toys. Thank you so much.

Oh no I've only just realised you'd written this lovely review one month on. Thank you so much and sorry not to reply sooner, didn't have my eye on the ball with those puppies that were around then. Really kind of you to take the time and to say such kind words. Hoping all goes well with you and perhaps see you here again. Best wishes, Gail

Stayed here on Saturday and Sunday. The room was a good size and had everything that we needed. This is a very well appointed period property, centrally located in picturesque Mere. Many thanks to Gail for making us welcome. Nearly forgot to mention the breakfasts, they were delicious and lots of choice.

If only we had more than one night! we were warmly welcomed and shown around by Gail who made sure we had everything we needed. The room was clean and comfortable and right in the centre of Mere. I had to leave before breakfast but was made a little bag of goodies including a bacon roll which was much appreciated. My husband said his eggs benedict was delicious! I would happily recommend to anyone.

Myself and my friend Will had a lovely welcome and tour of the bed and breakfast by the owner Gail. There was welcome gifts and water in the room. We had a comfortable one night stay in this hotel. The breakfast was homecooked and very nice. Regards Josh and Will

This is a great place to stay, the attic room was spacious, and very well equipped. Right down to cold bottles of water in the fridge. Much needed after 5 hours of wine tasting at Yapp Brothers wine merchants in the village. The breakfast was first rate with plenty of choice and a perfect start to the day ahead. Gail the owner was extremely hospitable and made us feel very welcome. If you're heading to Mere, I'd strongly recommend staying at Castleton House

What a lovely BnB! The room was perfect, cosy but still a very good size. Breakfast was really good. And Gail was very understanding and accommodating with anything we asked of her. Would highly recommend and happily stay there again.
