Welcome to Dunster

Welcome to Dunster

A fairy tale castle perched high on a hill. An iconic Yarn Market. Charming shop fronts nestled side-by-side upon cobbled streets. A church with a famous carillon of bells. A water mill, dovecote and tithe barn. An ancient packhorse bridge snaking across the River Avill. Rose-covered thatched cottages. A Victorian folly rising from Conygar Hill, with panoramic views to coast and countryside. A puffing steam train completes the scene. 

Welcome to Dunster, one of England’s most beautiful and fascinating medieval villages.
Whether you stay for an hour or two, a weekend, or longer, there’s so much to discover.

And if you have a special occasion to celebrate, Dunster has everything you need to make memories!
