Welcome to Yew Tree Cottage.

Offering a wealth of old world charm, Yew Tree Cottage in the Exmoor National Park is only 3 miles from the medieval village of Dunster, with its castle, yarn market shops and restaurants. Only 5 miles away is the seaside resort of Minehead, with its wide sandy beach and is the starting point of the West Somerset Railway and the South West Coast path.

Yew Tree Cottage offers you that rare opportunity to leave your car at home and enjoy the very best of this undiscovered National park right from the doorstep.

With views of Dunkery Beacon from the cottage, it is well located for exploring everything Exmoor has to offer with its beautiful scenery, outdoor pursuits and wildlife. At the end of a busy day, enjoy local hospitality at the Lion Inn just 50m away offering local Exmoor ales and good food before relaxing in front of the Inglenook fireplace.

The cottage benefits from two large bedrooms - one king sized double and a twin, a family bathroom with bath and separate shower. Downstairs there is a fully equipped modern kitchen with range style cooker, dishwasher and washer dryer and a large living room with inglenook fireplace, dining table and 32” LED flat screen television.
