Where you’ll be

Dunster, England, United Kingdom

We’re perfectly situated to explore the local area. A 10 minute walk will have you at Dunster beach, from where a cycle path extends to Blue Anchor where you can grab a hearty breakfast.
Or 15 minutes in the other direction will get you to the beautiful medieval village of Dunster, with its cafes, gift shops and restaurants.
The adjacent steam railway operates between Minehead and Bishop’s Lydeard near Taunton, from where, a short bus journey will take you to Somerset’s county town and beyond.
Minehead is full of individual shops, bars and restaurants, as well as being the gateway to Exmoor: heaven for hikers, mountain bikers and nature lovers.
