Dunster

Dunster is known for its castle perched majestically on top of a wooded hillside. Records show that this has been a site for fortifications since Norman times. The castle dominates the village of Dunster as it has done for hundreds of years. The castle is looked after by the National Trust.




Dunster claims to be one of the prettiest and most picturesque villages in Britain. It is certainly worth spending some time here walking around the village and castle and its grounds.



Dunster benefits from being surrounded by beautiful countryside as well as having a good beach nearby. Some of the buildings in Dunster are hundreds of years old. The High Street and Yarn Market, the Tithe Barn and Gallox Bridge all take you back in time and are set against wonderful countryside scenes. The stuff of oil paintings!



Each year Dunster has a country fair around the end of July. It features all aspects of countrylife with live demonstrations of equestrian, dogs, hawks, country life and even helicopter rides and plenty of fun attractions for the kids.
