    “This was a beautifully peaceful place to be.”

    The cottage is well appointed with a very efficient and easy to use central heating system. Walked upto Dunkery Beacon and explored Dunster Castle. The village shop sells delicious quiches. Minehead is only 10 minutes away if you need more provisions.
