    “This was our 4th visit to Castle View and this says a lot as we never usually return to the same cottage twice!”

    Castle View is clean, cosy, homely and warm (very important when you’ve booked for February) and very well equipped. The new shower is lovely with lots of hot water. The appt is on the first floor looking over the castle and in a lovely position in the village, with walks for everyone on the doorstep and lovely shops and eateries near by. Joanne & Brian

About the location

DUNSTER

Minehead 3 miles.

Dunster is a popular tourist village near the North Somerset coast and is a largely unspoiled spot: the centre of the town retains many old buildings which hug the winding cobbled streets. The whole village is dominated by the castle on its hill but the focal point of the High Street is the picturesque Yarn Market, a covered area built in 1609 particularly to accommodate the wool traders and other cloth merchants. Inside Dunster castle there are fine plasterwork ceilings and the extensive terraced and landscaped gardens contain many rare shrubs and trees, and offer marvelous views out to sea, and towards the Quantocks. For those who enjoy exploring the countryside, Dunster is within the Exmoor National Park and there are plenty of footpaths leading onto the surrounding hills of Grabbist and walks into Dunster’s Deer Park at the foot of the castle. Dunster is well served with traditional inns, individual shops and interesting places to explore including the working 18th century watermill. West Somerset’s premier resort of Minehead is less than three miles away and has golden sandy beaches, seaside attractions for the visitor, and plenty of cafes, shops and bistros.

Note: Church clock chimes beautifully on the quarter with a melody at various other times.
