Castle House

Stay in a Place with History and Character

Castle House is part of the original 12th Century castle at the heart of Taunton and home to the Museum of Somerset. This beautiful and historic property has been refurbished to the highest standard whilst truly celebrating its history and character.

Spacious Apartment Over Two Floors

Castle House is spread over two spacious floors, with the entrance on the ground floor level. Once inside, through your own front door in the hall, a flight of stairs takes you up to the first floor where you will find the ‘Tudor Room’ living-room, the elegant dining-room and the kitchen, as well as two of the bedrooms and a large shower-room.

The kitchen is a very clever contemporary design that suits the house and yet is fitted out for all your needs. It has a lovely view out over the gardens of the Castle Hotel – where you can sit and enjoy a morning coffee or afternoon tea. Another bonus of being next to the hotel is that you can order gorgeous meals which will be brought over to you, or of course you can stroll next door to dine in the hotel.

The second floor is home to two further bedrooms – including the master four-poster bedroom – and a bathroom.

It is now possible to stay in this stunning and unique apartment which is let through Classic Cottages. It sleeps seven (plus cots) and is available for short breaks as well as full weeks.

Cultural Events on Your Doorstep

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. The museum’s courtyard cafe is another treat where you can sit and take in the atmosphere of this special place. Plus, it’s only a short walking distance to the bustling town centre’s cafes, restaurants and shops.
