About Dunster

Dunster Castle has dominated the village of Dunster for centuries. The castle is of Norman origin and belonged to the Luttrell family for over 600 years, it was presented to the National Trust in 1976.

Few villages can be more enchanting than Dunster, where every turn brings fresh delights. Some of the buildings here date from the 13th-th century. There is a medieval pack horse bridge that spans the River Anvill, two 13th-century buildings are The Old Nunnery and a tithe barn and dovecot. The watermill which still works is from the 17th-century. In 1645, during the Civil War, the beautiful Yarn Market was damaged in the firing. The building is well preserved and the damage remains visible to this day.

The sand and shingle shore here is overlooked by Conygar Hill, a densely wooded area that is rich in wildlife, it is a peaceful place and the silence is disturbed only by the shrill shriek of gulls as they circle the air above.

Dunster is pleasantly situated between the resorts of Watchet and Minehead. Local attractions include, Cleeve Abbey, Combe Sydenham Hall and Tarr Steps.
