It has views over ancient rooftops to the castle and distant wooded hills. The friendly owner has a bridal-design studio on the ground floor. Dunster village gardens (open to all), 300 yards. To the side of the house, a little gated walled footpath full of flowers leads to the front door and stairs up to large, open-plan, L-shaped living/dining/fitted kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge, electric cooker), all elegant with nice furniture and Portmeirion china, TV/DVD; you can observe the world pass by on the donkey-sized street below. Stairs continue up to the second floor (top stairgate) and three bedrooms – a double (5' bed with footboard) with en suite bathroom (suite with corner bath with seat plus hand-shower) and long views over rooftops to the sea, a room with two singles, and a single (Velux window); shower-room (suite, step).

The Somerset region

Exmoor: exquisite National Park beside the sea: beech trees, sheep, wheeling buzzards and heather hills, from many of which you look over the sea to Wales and its mountains. Below are the most gracefully carved of steep oak-filled valleys where rushing, bouldered little rivers are paddleable and the red deer spend the winters, and perhaps the most dream-like rose-covered cottage villages of them all, where the pace of life is leisurely. At night, marvellously unpolluted skies for stargazing (recently designated an International Dark Sky Reserve).

Porlock Vale is one of the most beautiful farmed bits of England, Dunkery must be ascended, the area of The Chains is wild and wonderful for walking or riding; the Oare valley (Lorna Doone country) is an excellent place to take Granny for a visit to tiny, fascinating Oare church, a cream tea in Malmsmead and a sunset drive afterwards through the Valley of the Rocks to Woody Bay (if you drive well). Minehead, the main town, is good for sandcastles, has a Butlins (and a good golf course and a harbour) and isn't too big. Medieval Dunster is very pretty and has a fine castle (inhabited, National Trust); Dulverton, on the southern edge of the moor and popular with artists, has interesting shops and galleries; Culbone church, one of England's smallest, is worth walking to. Lots of good food pubs in 'hidden' villages, like Luxborough, where the welcome is warm and the atmosphere relaxed.


Dunster: one of the West Country's prettiest large villages in exceptional countryside, its castle on a wooded hillside standing romantically over its lovely main street. Ancient buildings, cottages; interesting shops; fine church; famous Yarn Market; good pubs, restaurants and tea rooms. Exmoor's heather hills, 6 miles; the sea/sand, 1 mile. Minehead (small resort town, sandy beach, steam railway, golf), 1 mile.
