  • “This was a really comfy, home from home cottage, presented very well, clean and tidy.”

    ...

    Kitchen has everything you need but there is no freezer section in the fridge. Bedding and towels provided were clean and smelt lovely. The rooms are well spaced. There really is no phone signal in the cottage but the WiFi is very good. Parking is a bit hit and miss but there was always a space not too far away. Great walks right from the door. At the moment you have to think ahead about eating out in the evening, there are some very good nearby eateries but you need to book. The cottage is really well placed for so many things to do, be that on the coast or on the moor. We would definitely recommend the cottage and would definitely return.

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: This property does not accept children under 7, except babes in arms, due to the steep stairs.
