We came with another couple for a wedding in the village. We wish we could have stayed longer! Janet was a fantastic host, so warm and welcoming. The house is such an interesting building, the sort of place with nooks and crannies that demand to be explored, and the full English breakfast and homemade fruit compot worked wonders to ease...

A truly amazing weekend in Dunster. Such lovely hosts who made us feel very welcome in their amazing house! Breakfast was a real treat and I slept so well. Laying on the bed with the window open with a view of Dunster castle was a real highlight. Magical stay and we'll definitely be going back!

We had a truly memorable stay in this beautiful historic house set in magical gardens crammed with climbing roses, lavender pathways and fruit trees.

“We had the room with the toilet across the hall (shower and sink were in the room), but we soon got used to this and it was no inconvenience (there was a handy bathrobe hanging on the back of the door). Otherwise, I think the other rooms are all completely en suite.”
