The property

Bodkin Cottage is a charming end-of-terrace home located in the centre of Dunster.

Well-presented throughout, Bodkin Cottage provides an excellent base for three guests looking to holiday in North Somerset.

After a day of wandering the coastline, kick off your walking boots and retire to the lounge, with flagstone flooring, a rug and a classic woodburning stove, it's a lovely place to relax after a long day.

Step into the well-equipped kitchen and make a tasty dinner using the integrated appliances before sitting down at the dining table and tucking in.

Head upstairs to find the family bedroom, which has a double and a single bed.

The bathroom has an option of a bath or a shower so you can choose how you want to get ready for the day.

The private courtyard is accessed via the kitchen, offering seating for alfresco dining or just your morning coffee.

The charming Dunster village has several gift shops and convenience stores for the essentials.

There are many pubs and restaurants to choose from when you feel like spending the evening somewhere other than the kitchen, and you can also learn more about the local area by marvelling at the buildings, which include the famous Yarn Market, the ruins of a Benedictine priory, a working watermill, and Iron Age settlements.

Take the short drive to Watchet, which has a charming harbour, or venture further west to Porlock, which has stunning moorland and rivers in addition to West Somerset's wild coastline.

Pick Bodkin Cottage and enjoy a delightful break to Somerset.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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: This property does not accept children under 5, due to the steep stairs.
