Somerset is the jewel of South West England, boasting some of the most dramatic scenery and vibrant cities in the UK. Whether your tour group are planning to stay for a week or a day, you'll find plenty to do and much to explore.

From Bristol's bustling city centre and shops to Glastonbury's laid back mystical atmosphere, steeped in legend, you'll run out of time before you run out of things to do.

And the West Country is a food lover's paradise, boasting some of the UK's best restaurants and cafes, which all benefit from Somerset's abundant produce. You'll find artisanal cheese & wine makers, and organic farms dotted throughout our land of summer, many of which allow visitors.

So don't just pass through... stop and explore our beautiful county.

    I would like to thank you and your team. We all had a great time and your staff couldn’t have been more helpful. We will be arranging a similar trip next year and I will certainly be in touch. With thanks and kind regards,

    Whenever I’ve worked with the Castle Hotel, I’ve always found that no query or request is too much to ask! Everyone is friendly and efficient, without exception, and the service they provide is impeccable. As Events Co-ordinator, The Castle removes any stress from organising our stay, which certainly makes my life a little easier!!

    I stayed at The Castle Hotel for four nights with a group of other women who were touring gardens in the general vicinity. The staff at the hotel were friendly, efficient and helpful. The breakfast buffet was nice and the fine dining room outstanding. Service throughout was very, very good.

    We really enjoyed our stay at The Castle and hope to return next season.   The private dining room was wonderful, food was terrific, and a good time was had by all.   Your morning crew does a great job of getting breakfast ready quickly.

    This is the most comfortable hotel we've ever stayed in. The bed is superb - the staff all so friendly and helpful and the breakfasts the best ever. I'm looking forward to returning in November.

    Our client was impressed by the friendliness of the staff. The willingness to help. The cleanness of the hotel and specially the rooms. Pleasantly surprised about the quality of the food served. It is with great joy that they look back at their stay at the Castle Hotel. An impression of the trip can be seen on youtube.

Beautiful, Wild & Deeply Inspiring

Exmoor's landscapes have inspired writers and artists for centuries and, no doubt, will captivate you.

From heathland to pebble beaches, you'll explore a plethora of wildlife and sceneries, all compressed within 692 km².


Music, Myth & Magic

Glastonbury is less than 30 minutes' drive from us but a world away in terms of an experience.

Images of mud clad festival goers normally spring to mind. But beyond the music festival, there's much to explore in this famous Somerset village.


Walk into the beautiful Vivary park, veer right and you’ll come across the Vivary Adventure Centre, a great place to get the whole family active for an hour.


Situated on The Castle's doorstep and exhibiting 400 million years of history is The Museum of Somerset. A fantastic place to spend the afternoon learning about Somerset and the surrounding area.
