Gail & Peter could not have been more welcoming. Felt at home as soon as we arrived. Delicious breakfast. Very comfortable & well furnished room. Feeling guilty that it has taken 6 months to acknowledge such a thoroughly enjoyable stay. NB - "Hotel" ratings below should be B&B ratings.

Castletown House B&B was great. Gail welcomed us and showed us around the lovely house which not only has spacious bedrooms but a large lounge for guests. Our en suite bedroom was big and had all the amenities you could ask for with fresh coffee, wifi, a fridge, TV etc. Breakfast is served around the large dining room table and... More

I have used B&B accommodation for over 20 years and Castleton House is in the top echelon. Gail, the hostess has thought of everything to make sure her guests feel at home from the moment they arrive. I am sorry that my itinerary only allowed one night in this lovely home. I thoroughly recommend this establishment. without any reservation.

Castleton House was a perfect place to stay for our nieces wedding in Mere. Just a short walk from the church with parking outside/nearby. Gail made us all very welcome...bedrooms were more than adequate...finishing with a hearty breakfast the next morning.

What a great B&B we found in Mere. This place is so elegant, peaceful and charming too just like Gail the hostess. A lot of effort has been put into making this B&B comfortable and every little detail has been attended to. It was nice to have a small fridge in our room, which kept the fresh milk provided nice...

My husband and I were visiting my mom with our kids but we checked into Castleton House, it was amazing! Very relaxing, comfortable and clean. Gail's breakfasts are amazing! Gail was also great at recommending what to do in the near by areas.

“Castleton House has just two rooms on the first floor and both can be locked securely (though we didn't feel the need). The rooms each have a second door (which opens onto a small walkway between the rooms) and these may be left open to make the rooms interconnecting - perfect for families with children.”
