Holiday Let Dunster

Whatever the season, Dunster is full of interest and activity, an historical gem that offers a complete holiday experience for visitors of all ages including the dog.

Set between the superb Quantock Hills of Exmoor and the sea, Dunster is a lively village, with a wide range of attractions. Families can enjoy the sea, the steam railway and wildlife spotting on Exmoor. Walkers and hikers come for the matchless countryside that offers pleasant easy ambling or more challenging climbs in all weathers. There’s fishing in the area and, if you’re feeling active, mountain biking and horse riding.


"Had a great week staying at The Oval, the cottage is really fantastic, with all our needs met as it is so well equipped. You really do not need to bring anything except your clothes and yourself. Thanks Lucy." Helpful Holidays guests, May 2011

About Dunster

If history is your interest, Dunster is a must:

 The ancient castle set on a rock, a treasured National Trust property

 The medieval St George’s Church with the longest rood screen in England – discover its fascinating story

 The working water mill built in 1680

 The imposing Yarn Market, a meeting place for farmers and merchants in the middle ages for striking bargains, selling and buying wool. If you look very closely, you can see the hole made by a cannon ball in the English Civil War.

 You could come to Dunster and find something fascinating to see or do every day - without moving from the village. We’ve not even mentioned the wide range of pretty shops, cosy tea rooms and friendly pubs and restaurants.
