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.


Weekend Adventure Break for Two

Working with Outside Adventure Consultants we have put together a fantastic weekend package of a two night stay including a two-course dinner in BRAZZ on one evening, and Castle Bow Restaurant on the other, a wonderful English breakfast on both mornings, a half day 4×4 driving (with instructor) and a Castle packed lunch for £569.00 per couple.

To Book: 01823 272671


Taunton Races Break

If you enjoy the thrill of the races, there’s no better way to enhance a visit to Taunton Racecourse than to stay at The Castle Hotel in nearby Taunton.

Taunton’s racecourse has to be one of the most beautifully located racecourses in the country, yet it’s so convenient for Taunton and the M5, and only a few minutes drive from The Castle Hotel. This is so much the racegoers’ preferred hotel that we have created special rates. Why not spend a day with our race host, Martin Higgs.
