Where you’ll be

Castle Cary, Somerset, United Kingdom

The Nurseries forms part of an enclosed group of four contemporary properties at the top of Castle Cary High Street.

Castle Cary is one of Somerset's most attractive market towns (market on Tuesday). It has a rich mix of independent shops, restaurants, dog friendly pubs and other amenities. Renowned for the beauty of the local period architecture.

The surrounding countryside is of particular appeal, with major landmarks such as Stourhead, Glastonbury, Camelot and many beautiful walks and towns nearby. If you prefer golf, fishing, horse riding or water sports these are all available a short drive away.

Noah's Ark Zoo farm - Museum of Somerset - Wells Cathedral - Bath - Bristol - Glastonbury - Stourhead - Frome - StoneHenge (en-route from London)

The towns main amenities are a five-minute walk away:
The town has its own website, if you do a web search for Castle Cary Town Website (Airbnb doesn't allow web links!) this will have all the up-to-date info we may not have mentioned below:

MARKET - Tuesdays 9am-2pm
Small general street markets including local produce are only a short walk into Castle Cary centre. Vintage flea market pops up occasionally with various stalls for clothes and bric-a-brac.

Our favourite food shop is Pinsents - Charlie's deli and Millie's wine shop / Vinoteka. Georges at the end of the high street is an excellent grocer; a vast selection of quality veg can be delivered or pre-packed if required. The Really Wild Butcher is a welcome new edition with superb quality cuts and the practical Co-op (shuts 10pm). All are a short walk down the high street on the left hand side. There is also another great veg and flower shop on the right (open on Sundays) opposite McColl's the newsagent.

EATING OUT - best to check all times and availability
1. Home café serves great food and is planning to do some summer evening events outside.
2. The Bakehouse serves excellent Thai food at lunch during the week and Friday and Saturday evenings.
3. The Castle Fryer is a great fish and chip shop on Station rd.
4. Castle Cary Kebab on Fore Street serves a decent kebab late if you get stuck.
5. The Chinese next door has recently started selling Japanese / Sushi which has been really great, so worth a try.
5. Pop up food is available on some days at the market hall (centre of Cary) in the evenings at the centre of Cary.
7. As mentioned above Pinsents Deli / café with outside seating off the Market Hall for lunch and local produce.
8. We await a Lobster shack to be opened shortly.

The old Barclays ATM remains (another in McColl's). Sadly the Post Office closed down, but there is Boots, a great hardware store, a lovely bookshop, An art gallery & shop / flowers, several hairdressers, a pet shop, fancy dress shop, and even a music shop. Other shops include: clothes shops, small art shops, a new gallery and flower shop, and interior décor shops.

1. The George Hotel (Castle Cary) is the main watering hole and is a short stumble from the house just before you arrive at the market. They are dog friendly as are all local pubs.. The George also has a substantial menu in its restaurant.
2. Millys Wine shops and Vinoteka (Castle Cary) next to Charlie’s delhi is open quite a few nights with inside and garden drinks and snacks. They offer great a meal deal with a local pizza van on Thursdays, but please check with them as it's seasonal.
3. The Bay Tree (Castle cary), is a lovely little old pub at the other end of town if you like a walk and a drink.
4. The Alhampton Inn (Alhampton) is a favorite of mine, a short drive away and has an excellent new outside covered space, they serve food and also started a pizza night on Tuesday (but please check first).
5. The manor House Inn (Ditchet) is another good palace to know, a popular spot for local jockeys working for Paul Nicholls, the famous stables is based in Ditchet. This pub serves all day roasts on the weekend, not many other places offer this.
6. The Bull Inn, Hardway, great good for walks around Stourhead & Kings Alfred’s Tower, but not always open, so ring first.
7. The Spread Eagle is also another favorite stop for walks around Stourhead, I usually start from King Alfred's tower head through the woods and then back via the garden, a good 4 to 5 hours round trip if you’re up for it. They do a decent Sunday roast and the shop sells dog ice cream! You might need the Trails app mentioned below as it is a bit of an adventure.
8. The Castle (Bruton) is laid back and serves good food.
9. The Sun (Bruton) has a large outside area and live music pre Covid.
10. The Three Horseshoes in Batcombe is well known for its food and position and has a large garden.
11. The Talbot Inn, Mells, near Frome is the sister pub to the Beckford Arms in Tisbury. You will need to book for either of these as they have very good restaurants.
12. Last and certainly not least, The Queen's Arms in Corton Denham is one of our favourites; laid back and friendly with great food & an open fire and pub garden. Dogs are almost mandatory here! Cadbury Hill is nearby (see walks below). Book at the weekend.

We highly recommend using the TRAILS App for detailed footpaths in the area as thewalks in the area are numerous.
1. The best one to take without needing your car is right out of the gates down the high street. Left along the small alley beside the George Hotel. Follow the path up and into the field. Climb to the top of the hill and take a breather on a bench whilst looking down onto the town and across to Glastonbury Tor.
2. We like to walk up the high street, straight over the crossroads, bear left at the fork and down the road for a few minutes to the fields on either side, and wander over the fields.
3. More favourite walks, if you have a car, are around the woods at King Alfred's Tower, Tower Rd, Stourhead, Warminster BA12 6QD
4. South Cadbury is a 15 minute drive away and you can walk around the old overgrown ramparts of Camelot and take a short drive to the Queen's Arms pub in Corton Denham afterwards for a good pint and great food. Book at the weekends. There are also lovely hour walks above the pub or through the church to a viewing point, great place to see Cadbury Castle / Hill fort from afar.
5. Stourhead has a great 4-5 hour walk to the Spread Eagle and back to Alfred's Tower, but there are lots of short walks inside the wood or along the gallops..

Now renowned for its recently opened international art gallery, Hauser & Wirth Somerset, in Dropping Lane, Bruton (about 10 mins by car). Bruton is also full of unique local shops. At the Chapel, on the high street, is a well-known restaurant and bakery is very relaxed and child friendly and their pizzas and bread, made on the premises, are legendary. Really great for a lazy breakfast with the papers but book for weekend lunch or supper. Dog friendly garden in the summer. Matt's Kitchen on Bruton high street, is a wonderful quirky house/ restaurant so do book as Matt only has a few small tables in his own house, check opening hours, BYOB. Excellent and imaginative food from a tiny menu created from whatever delights he finds in the market that week. near 33 High St, Bruton, Somerset BA10 0AH
If you like cheese then visit the Godminster Farm Shop in Bruton to pick up some of the famous organic cheddar and vodka.
Soho House members have Babington House Hotel with a spa, gym and sauna and a great restaurant. About 30 mins by car.
