Mrs Sturgess October 2018
The house itself is wondrous, but combined with the Museum staff who look after it - and you - make it an unique experience.
Mrs Beckwith September 2018
Everything went very smoothly with good contact and responses. We had a wonderful week in a fabulous characterful property in a great town. Thank you.
Mr Higgo August 2018
Amazing well restored historical property that I would definitely recommend. Sat Nav gets you to the right area but you need to be aware that parking is provided for one vehicle for this property (free of charge) within the Hotel car park, so you need to go through the Hotel barrier to gain access and you will need to obtain an exit ticket from the Hotel reception each day. I would recommend that you arrive well before 5pm when the museum (who own and manage the property) closes, just in case there are any issues on your day of arrival.

We all loved our stay at Castle House very much. It is an amazing apartment that combines living in medieval times (and feeling like a princess) with modern comfort. The kitchen is fully equipped and leaves nothing to be wished for. We all felt totally at home and enjoyed the comfort of the Tudor Hall thoroughly. I can fully recommend Castle House. We will definitely be back!
Mr Ivanov March 2018
Step back into time and experience what it was like to live in a castle!
Dr Firth February 2018
An absolutely fabulous place to stay. Well-equipped and warm. Beds very comfortable. A big thank you to all the museum staff, particularly Mary, who took us on our own castle tour including a trip to the turret. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.
Mrs Akins February 2018
Our visit to Castle House is without doubt one of the most memorable UK holidays that I've been on. It is so full of character and history, and yet still feels cosy and homely. The location in the centre of Taunton is ideal - everything is on your doorstep. And it's a perfect base for exploring the local area. We didn't want to go home at the end of our stay!
Mr Riggs December 2017
Simply stunning property. Such a special place to spend time with the family at Christmas.
Mrs Sturgess October 2017
The property EXCEEDED expectations - it was a dream. It is one of the happiest places I've ever stayed. The atmosphere created is perfect, the decor perfect, all the fittings and fixtures perfect.
Mrs Pike September 2017
Most historic house we have stayed in . Very quirky. Even the bath has a deep end!!!
Mrs Johnson August 2017
Liked the curtains! The care and presentation of a listed building. Felt secure when I was alone.
Mr Hitier July 2017
A great stay in a charming area. Castle house is a large apartment and historical monument in perfect condition
Mr Johnson June 2017
The cottage is old, really old, but it has been renovated beautifully and obviously not suitable for anyone who cannot cope with uneven floors. But the property is also big and easily accommodates groups of adults without them getting in each others way. Parking could be an issue (although we had no problems ), as the marked space doesn't actually say reserved so anyone parks there which could cause problems on busy days in the hotel.
Miss Thompson May 2017
Fantastic house for a holiday. Location in centre of Taunton is excellent. The character of the house, spacious rooms and quality of kitchen equipment, bathrooms, linen - all very good and far above average.
Mrs Desouza April 2017
Fantastic place to stay especially for a special occasion as has such a great wow factor! 10 out of 10 for overall experience. Lots to do in the local area for all ages and lovely that entertainment is provided in the castle for rainy days, even if monopoly causes a few arguments in our household!
Mr Maitland-Round February 2017
This is a lovely and unusual place to stay with heaps of history and charm. Very warm and comfy. The museum adjoining is fab and we enjoyed it all very much. Being right in the heart of the town was fun too.
Dr Gibson January 2017
A unique stay. People in Taunton and staff of the adjacent museum were very friendly and helpful.
Dr Weber August 2016
We very much enjoyed the positive and helpful interaction with the museum staff. The museum is a great place to visit too. Highly recommended.
Mr Crowther April 2016
Beautiful and well equipped property with some flooring quirks which adds to the charm after all it is very old. Second visit and look forward to our third.
Mrs Jones November 2015
Stunning property, great location and excellent facilities. Every room was very spacious and even the single room could have taken a double bed despite the 'cozy' description.
Mrs Heywood November 2015
This a a lovely property full of character right in the centre of Taunton. It has everything that you need to enjoy a weekend away. It is furnished to a very high standard and has a wonderful atmosphere. Due to the historic nature of the property I would recommend this property for adults who will appreciate its unique heritage.
Ms Minchella October 2015
Wow, what an amazing place to stay! It's like you're staying in a museum... Which you sort of are! Everything is amazingly wonky. The museum of Somerset is literally on your doorstep. You are in the middle of Taunton, which is really convenient. The house is really well stocked eg with decent wine glasses.
