Centrally located in medieval Dunster, on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, our cosy 17th century thatched cottage is ideal for couples, families, or groups of friends. The cottage is well appointed with modern appliances but retains bags of medieval character. To the rear is a sunny, private outdoor area; free parking and a children's playground are 2 minutes' walk away at Gallox Bridge, and the High Street, Water Mill/Tea Room, Castle, pubs, and restaurants are all within 5 minutes' walk.

Intimate charm of an idyllic country stay. Warm hospitality. A charming village that allows one to step back in time. Lovely friendly people and countryside views to die for. A bucket list item in my opinion.

I am a primary school teacher living locally to Dunster with my two young children. I will generally be there to meet you when you arrive and be on hand if you need any assistance during your stay at Chimney Cottage. We look forward to having you to stay!
