These rentals offer a rustic setting for a quiet countryside getaway.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: This part of Somerset is a lovely place to explore. Visitors come here to walk, cycle, and horse ride along quiet country roads and public paths. The Mendip Hills are located just 15 miles away and offer excellent footpaths through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Plenty of native wildlife call the hills home, and visitors will also be able to see stunning limestone cliffs, rocky outcrops, and fields of wildflowers.

-Family attractions: The East Somerset Railway, originating in Shepton Mallet, is a must for families visiting from April to October. During this time, a steam train runs from here through to the Mendip Hills and the journey is a wonderful way to spend the day. It is hugely popular with visitors in holiday homes in Shepton Mallet, Yeovil, and the general Taunton area. Also in the area is the Haynes International Motor Museum. Located in Yeovil, the museum is home to over 400 cars and bikes ranging from the antique to the exotic.

-Golf: Wheathill Golf Club is a short drive from many holiday rentals in Castle Cary and is very approachable for novice golfers. The club offers equipment hire in addition to a beautiful 18-hole course. A little further in Yeovil, the Yeovil Golf Club has two 18-hole courses to choose from catering to golfers of all ability levels.

-Culture: Glastonbury, one of the UK's most famous festivals, is held each summer not far from Castle Cary – but while it attracts world-class musicians, camping's not always as comfy as having a holiday home to return to! Another fun festival in the area is the Royal Bath and West Show, a major event that celebrates rural life with 600 trade stands, livestock shows, and cider and cheese awards.

Weather in Castle Cary

Travel to Castle Cary

Castle Cary is one of the few towns in the area with its own rail station and benefits from direct service from London Paddington. However, most visitors staying in a Castle Cary holiday rental choose to drive, as it makes it easier to explore the surrounding region. Drivers can reach the town by taking the M3 to the A303, or the A37 south from Bristol.

Kitchen very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed the lovely log burning stove and the extra comfy new sofa.The 2 rooms were extremely tidy and the beds were so comfortable. Surely we'll come back again.
