Pocket Guide: England Cadbury Castle Hotels

Cadbury Castle in Somerset crowns an isolated hill just off the A303 near Sparkford. It has four separate ramparts with external ditches and covers an area of 18 acres. Used continuously from the Iron Age to the time of Ethelred the Unready, the site has been excavated many times, most recently in 1970 by the Camelot Research Committee. This identification of Cadbury with Arthur's Camelot is one good reason to visit it from your Somerset hotel or guesthouse while you're in the region.

Somerset Hotels for King Arthur's Camelot at Cadbury

The regular excavations at Cadbury have often been tinged with the romantic hope that Camelot was a real castle and King Arthur a real historic figure. The more accurate assumption, however, is that he was a post-Roman chieftain that fought a series of successful campaigns against the Saxon invaders who swarmed in from the Continent to fill the power vacuum left by the retreating legions. From this original grain of truth sprang all the subsequent medieval stories, myths and legends about the magical court and its knights and ladies. It all makes a fascinating tale and moreover a great day out in the Wessex countryside from your base at a local Somerset hotel or B&B, of which there are many to choose from in the area.

Visit Cadbury Castle from a Somerset Hotel or Guesthouse

Apart from being the supposed site of fabled Camelot, the hill on which Cadbury Castle stands is according to legend the one under which King Arthur and his faithful knights are sleeping. They await the day when the English nation they were instrumental in forging needs them again. This is a familiar myth that has its parallels with Drake's Drum and other popular tales of heroes coming back to the rescue long after their death, but it is undeniably charming. Most scholars are, however, agreed that Arthur was a real chieftain of some sort, and that Cadbury Castle may well be the site of Camelot. Decide for yourself on a visit to the region when you book in to a Somerset hotel or B&B. It's a magical landscape that's well worth exploring.
