This beautiful and historic property has been refurbished to the highest standard whilst truly celebrating its history and character. Castle House, part of the original 12th Century castle at the heart of Taunton, Somerset’s vibrant county capital, is now home to the multi-million pound premises of The Museum of Somerset. Not only will you have the unique opportunity to stay in a house with medieval origins, but you will also have access to the wonderful range of cultural events – literally on your doorstep – that are presented by the museum throughout the year. Plus, it’s only a short walking distance to the bustling town centre’s cafes, restaurants and shops. As you would expect with such an historic property, some of the beautiful original floorboards and the stairs have some uneven places and some of the doorways have low lintels – all adding to the incredible experience of staying here. Christmas or New Year in Castle House has a magic of its own that will be memorable. The Museum of Somerset across the courtyard holds special concerts, exhibitions and talks in the panelled meeting room below the Tudor Room so you will have a perfect opportunity to enjoy all that is on offer.
