  • "Immaculately presented property, well equipped with excellent appliances."

    The coast and Dunster are within easy walking distance, and a short drive to more spectacular locations. Steam train enthusiasts will love being a short walk away from Dunster staton. Overall a great place to stay.

    Thank you for such a lovely review. It’s very much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "A superb week in a very comfortable well appointed Coach House with outstanding views to Exmoor, and within easy reach of Dunster Castle and Dunster Beach which is very peaceful."

    The coach house is also close to the Steam railway line, and a whole host of mainline food shops are within a mile or so of the property. We would not hesitate to book it again! Thank you

    So pleased to hear you had a good time. It was a pleasure to host you and you would be welcome back any time Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a week's holiday staying at The Coach House."

    The apartment was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and spacious with some lovely touches on arrival. The apartment is only 20 minutes walk from Dunster and is also perfectly located to explore Minehead, Exmoor and beyond. We couldn't fault our stay at The Coach House and would definitely stay there again if we returned to the area.

  • "We had a lovely two week stay in Dunster."

    The property is clean, comfortable and a lot of care has clearly been taken to make it a home from home, from the quality of the sheets and towels to the thoughtful extras in the kitchen. We were surprised with some lovely goodies on arrival, which was appreciated after a long drive. The property is well located for sightseeing - we especially loved Dunster village, castle and gardens, Lynton and Lynmouth, Porlock Weir, Tarr Steps, the steam railway and Tropiquaria. The weather wasn’t kind to us but there was plenty to do and the apartment was a great place to get cosy with movies and games on the wettest days.

    You were our first two week guests, so a little nervous! Absolutely fab review - thank you so much and for being great guests. Property Owner

  • "As soon as you walk into the Coach house you know you are in for the perfect stay."

    It is immaculate and and beautifully presented. Everything is catered for and there are little extras everywhere which make your stay even more of a joy. From the beautiful rooms and luxurious bedding to the locally made blankets and artwork, it is such a treat to stay here. We also loved the wide selection of board games, useful waterproof map and recommendations for things to do and places to visit, which made the visit complete. This is the best place we have stayed and we have stayed in some lovely cottages before! I can’t recommend it more highly and hope to have the pleasure of staying here again in the future.

    Wow! Thank you so much for such a superb review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you again if you visit the area. Property Owner

The property

1 Marsh Gardens is a beautifully presented Coach House located in Dunster, between the village and the beach.

It is described as one of England's most beautiful and fascinating medieval villages.

Perfect for the beaches, the North Somerset Coastal Path and exploring beautiful Exmoor.

You have your own reserved, off-road parking at the rear of the house and the use of the garage to securely store bikes, paddle boards etc.

Leave your coat and shoes in the hallway and make your way up the stairs to the bright and airy open plan living area and wonderful views.

A great place to dine, cook and relax; unwind on the two sofas as the Smart TV plays your favourite shows.

The kitchen has an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, undercounter fridge and freezer, dishwasher, and coffee machine.

At the end of the day, you can retreat to the two good sized bedrooms consisting of a double with an en-suite shower room and twin room with family bathroom.

Both rooms are both as delightful as the next, boasting contemporary furniture and luxurious Egyptian cotton linen.

There is no garden at the property, but who needs one with a great beach less than 1 mile away, perfect for those evening barbecues and watching the great sunsets.

The village centre is a short stroll away, offering you a great selection of independent shops, deli, tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and a host of historic buildings and church.

Standing above the village is the fascinating National Trust Dunster Castle and Watermill.

Jump in the car to visit the coastal town of Minehead which has a variety of offerings, from 3 supermarkets, a mile-long esplanade, golden beach, Harbour, Southwest Coastal Path, Butlins, Golf Course, sea front traditional activities, and the Southwest Steam Railway.

The Coach House at 1 Marsh Gardens is a great base from which to explore the coast or the Exmoor National Park.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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.
