Castle House

Situated on the grounds of the Museum of Somerset and part of a 12th-century castle, Castle House offers large families and groups a unique holiday getaway in the town of Taunton, Somerset.

This child-friendly cottage has a long history as part of historic Taunton Castle, once hosting judges and royal courts, then later school boarders and museum curators. It now comes filled with modern conveniences and elegant furnishings to provide a distinctive experience for holiday-goers.

With views overlooking the courtyard and the Castle Hotel’s beautiful Keep Garden, once home of the castle keeps, you can catch a glimpse into the medieval world that once called Taunton Castle home. You also can arrange for a private guided tour of the connecting tower or enjoy free entry to special events.

The ground-level entrance to Castle House faces the hotel for 24-hour access, and once inside, you climb a flight of stairs to an upstairs hall to the Tudor Room — the property’s signature sitting room.

The kitchen offers views onto the Keep Garden and includes everything you need to craft home-cooked meals to serve in the elegant dining room, or you can have the Castle Hotel deliver lunch to you.

The first floor contains a luxury double bedroom and a single bedroom, whilst another flight of stairs leads to the third storey with a master bedroom with four-poster bed, twin single, and bathroom with rolltop bath.

Taunton is the county town of Somerset and offers attractions such as the Brewhouse with its arthouse cinema and St. Mary Magdalene, the town’s grandest church. The surrounding Quantock and Blackdown Hills are both listed as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boast splendid walking paths to explore this stunning region.
