    “The cottage was as described and big enough for our party of four adults.”

    ...

    The upside down layout was unusual but we soon got used to it, facilities in the cottage are excellent with virtually everything you need for cooking etc., they even provided a decorated Christmas tree for our stay. Plenty of information on the various appliances in the cottage and the local area attractions is made available in the welcome pack. Local village area interesting and we were made to feel welcome in the local pub and store. Excellent food in the pub! Minor minus points were as follows: Rainwater goods to house and garage need attention Mechanical ventilation systems in the bathroom don't appear to be working Kettle sometimes caused the electric breaker to trip. Unable to regulate the temperature properly, meaning it was usually too hot upstairs but relatively cold downstairs, could save fuel if this were sorted out. Generally the cleanliness of the cottage was good, but it does need a good spring clean before the next season starts. I've indicated that you may publish this feedback, but please don't include the minus points as I feel these can be easily rectified by the owner.

About the location

DUNSTER

Minehead 3 miles.

Dunster is a popular tourist village near the North Somerset coast and is a largely unspoiled spot: the centre of the town retains many old buildings which hug the winding cobbled streets. The whole village is dominated by the castle on its hill but the focal point of the High Street is the picturesque Yarn Market, a covered area built in 1609 particularly to accommodate the wool traders and other cloth merchants. Inside Dunster castle there are fine plasterwork ceilings and the extensive terraced and landscaped gardens contain many rare shrubs and trees, and offer marvelous views out to sea, and towards the Quantocks. For those who enjoy exploring the countryside, Dunster is within the Exmoor National Park and there are plenty of footpaths leading onto the surrounding hills of Grabbist and walks into Dunster’s Deer Park at the foot of the castle. Dunster is well served with traditional inns, individual shops and interesting places to explore including the working 18th century watermill. West Somerset’s premier resort of Minehead is less than three miles away and has golden sandy beaches, seaside attractions for the visitor, and plenty of cafes, shops and bistros.
