Reviews

    • “Great location with plenty of local walks and interesting Dunster Castle on the doorstep. Cosy, well equipped cottage in the heart of the village provided us with everything we needed for our stay including a welcome cake and drinks on arrival. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere experienced everywhere we went ensured we will return to the area in the future and would stay at Bodkin Cottage again.”

    Mr Buckland, Worthing, May 2018

    • “Bodkin Cottage is the perfect, pretty little cottage in the perfect, pretty little village of Dunster - - - but, what makes it stand out to us is the fact that the owners have done everything possible to make your stay as warm and comfortable as possible. The cottage is exceptionally clean, and very comfortable. There is everything you could need in the kitchen, should you choose not to eat out, and there are even a few gravy bones for the dogs and a bowl to give them a drink as soon as you arrive. Parking has never been a problem for us and you have everything on your doorstep that you could need, - including some fabulous walk, short and long. This was not our first stay in Bodkin Cottage and it certainly will not be our last. My only problem in recommending it to others is that we would like to keep it as "our secret" so we can go whenever we want to without having to "share" it with others.”

Regional Information

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.
