Dunster is a thriving village, so whatever you're looking for, you're likely to find it here!

Some of Somerset's most lovely tea shops are here; including Chapel House (two minutes walk) and Tessa's Tea Shop (on the High Street).

 

For something a little stronger, there's The Foresters Arms, The Stags Head, The Gin Bar at Dunster Castle Hotel and the world famous Luttrell Arms.

 

For Retail therapy, there's a super selection of gifts, homewares and fashion stores including our own 'Not Two Deer', where our guests can receive a discount of 10% during their stay.

 

To discover a little more about the history of the area, everyone should visit the magnificent Castle, Gardens and working Water Mill.  Take time to visit the Gallox Bridge and Yarn Market (both English Heritage Monuments) and wonder at the natural beauty of the village from atop the Conygar Tower or Bat's Castle: the site of a medieval camp.

 

Every visit should also include a trip on the West Somerset Heritage Railway with its fabulous steam trains of yesteryear and a walk along the beguiling Dunster Beach - home to mid-twentieth century beach huts which make for a thriving summer community.

 

 

Within a short car journey

 

To the east

West Somerset and the Quantock Hills are almost on our doorstep and within fifteen minutes, you'll be experiencing the historic working harbour town of Watchet, the promenade at Blue Anchor and the quiet delight of Cleeve Abbey at Washford. 

To the west

Head west, and in five minutes you'll be enjoying the Victorian seaside town of Minehead with its beaches, harbour and stunning North Hill. Take time to visit the Steam Railway station, museum and peruse the independent shops on the Avenue.

Further west, you'll find Selworthy (an amazing National Trust Village), Hurlstone Point, Porlock and Porlock Bay (home to it's famous Oysters) and one of the steepest hills in Europe.

Continue on the A39 atop the Moor and you'll be in the heart of Lorna Doone country, with its foggy valleys and breathtaking views and continue onto spectacular Lynton and Lynmouth within 45 minutes.

To the south

Inland (take the A396) you'll soon find yourself deep in Exmoor, with it's winding, narrow lanes, tiny villages and fabulous hidden hostelries with log fires and a warm welcome.

Places to visit include the rural town of Dulverton (30 minutes), Tarr Steps Ancient Clapper Bridge (40 minutes), Wimbleball Lake and England's Tallest Tree at Nutcombe Bottom (10 minutes). 

 

A little further afield

 

The incredible beaches of North Devon, Isle of Lundy,  the charming Barle Valley and Exe River (through Tiverton and beyond to Exeter) and historic County Town of Taunton are all close at hand. 

Take time to slow down and work at Exmoor's pace - life's definitely slower here and you'll soon feel 'at one' with a more pedestrian pace of life.

OUR COTTAGE

 

CHORISTER COTTAGE

14 st. georges street

dunster

 

Chorister Cottage forms part of a row of cottages built in 1844.

Originally constructed to provide accommodation for workers and their families of the Church, Castle and Gardens, St Georges Row Cottages (as they were known) were designed for practicality and cosiness, therefore they possess few architectural adornments from the period.

 

As a nod to the history of the cottage, we have decorated neutrally, practically and eclectically, but with many modern comforts to make this a real home from home in our beautiful village.

 

We hope you enjoy what we've created, and we look forward to welcoming you.
