Places to stay in Taunton
Whether you’re heading to Taunton Deane for a short break or a full-blown family holiday you’ll find all kinds of accommodation to suit your needs. If it’s a taste of hotel luxury you are after, for instance, there’s the historic Taunton town centre Castle Hotel, run by the Chapman family for more than 50 years, and a true flagship for West Country hospitality. Equally you may prefer a rural setting for your stay, in which case there’s an impressive choice, from barn conversions for fans of self-catering to farmhouse bed and breakfast for those who prefer to have breakfast cooked for them.
The Royal Ashton Hotel provides the only hotel accommodation in Taunton within a short 5-minute walk from each of the train station, county cricket ground and the town centre.
Built in the 1850’s the delightful, beautifully proportioned Victorian house boasts many gothic features, including arched doorways, stained glass windows and a fine oak staircase.
