The Perfect Hosts
Our stay started with a warm welcome and help with luggage to the top floor. We were a wedding group and had the whole floor to ourselves which was perfect. We were provided with nice comfortable themed rooms and excellent bathroom facilities. Breakfast was relaxed with plenty of choice and home made produce. Best of all, as others have said, Martin and Melanie are the perfect hosts providing excellent local advice, good food and conversation and Martin's second to none taxi service. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and Martin's taxi service took much of the stress out of meeting our various commitments. I cannot recommend this accommodation too highly!

Marvelous page to stay
A great place to stay in Castle Cary. The room had everything I needed, breakfast was great, and I really appreciated the pick up from the station and lift to the office on the next day. Hosts are super friendly, dogs are great, no complaints. Very high on my list for my next trip.
