SPECIAL BREAKS IN TAUNTON

 


The Famous Somerset Garden Break - The Castle at Taunton

Famous Somerset Garden Break

 

Summer is one of the most beautiful times of the year at the famous Hestercombe Gardens near Taunton. The Formal Garden was created by the renowned British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens and the planting scheme was designed by Gertrude Jekyll, so there's nowhere more appropriate to stay when visiting Hestercombe than a famous castle. We've therefore created a very special break to tempt you to this part of Somerset and it includes entry tickets to the famous gardens, as well as a fabulous dinner in Castle Bow Restaurant on one night.

 

The Famous Somerset Garden Break is for one night and is available throughout the year, Wednesdays through Saturdays. Hestercombe Gardens is open every day, except Christmas Day.

 

One night break: £199.00 per standard double/twin room

Price includes two tickets to Hestercombe Gardens, overnight accommodation in a standard double/twin room, full English breakfast and a three-course dinner in Castle Bow Restaurant. Valid Wednesday - Saturday night stay only.

 

You can up-grade to a Garden Room for £50.00 per person per night, which will include a bottle of Champagne.
