Travel Guide to holidays in... Dunster, Somerset, England

The picturesque village of Dunster in north Somerset is a place you'll never forget. With its Olde English buildings, restaurants, gift shops, and of course the magnificent castle overlooking both the village and the nearby coastline, a visit to Dunster is one to be treasured. With the seaside town of Minehead just a few miles along the coast and the preserved West Somerset Railway stopping off en-route from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead, visiting Dunster is like stepping back in time. Follow the links to find holiday cottages and lets available in this area on Go2, or view the surrounding area on the map below.

With its lovely beaches beautiful countryside and fascinating history, dating back to the times of the Ancient Britons, Somerset makes a wonderful cottage holiday destination. And the best way to experience the county’s many attractions is from your base in one of our holiday cottages in Somerset. Bath has some of Britain’s most majestic Georgian architecture, as well as the famous Roman Baths (not mention great shopping). Then there’s Wells, England’s smallest city. Wandering around the cathedral close, with its unspoilt medieval lanes is like taking a step back in time. And for a real sense of mystery, there’s Glastonbury (home of the world-famous music festival), supposedly the site of King Arthur’s mythical Avalon. All await you on one of our Somerset cottage holidays. The county has more than its fair share of beach resorts too. The Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare is superb, as is the wide beach here, while Minehead and Burnham-on-Sea offer a choice of traditional seaside pleasures. Meanwhile, for nature lovers there’s the wild landscape of Exmoor, and the Mendip and Quantock Hills, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cheddar Gorge is truly stunning. Great for real Cheddar cheese too!

Travelling to or from Ireland? Don't forget the ferry! Not only does it give you the freedom of taking your own car but it provides a superb experience of travelling by sea and exploring the coastline. With convenient routes between Holyhead and Dublin, or Pembroke and Rosslare, we recommend Irish Ferries for great, low-cost, transport.
