The property

Cobbles, located in Dunster, Somerset, is an ancient Grade II listed property located in the heart of Medieval Dunster.

Internally, the one-bed, self-contained accommodation has been completely renovated to provide a period-feel holiday home, with modern essentials.

It is ideal for couples looking for a countryside break in this unique corner of Exmoor.

Step into the large hallway, kick off your shoes and enter the spacious living room with a range of comfortable seating, including a sofa and armchair.

There is a flat screen TV with Sky packages available and a lovely woodburning stove.

This room is perfect for romantic meals in front of the TV.

With two steps up, this leads into the fitted kitchen with modern fixtures and fittings, as well as many high-quality appliances to suit all your needs.

There is a ground floor shower room just off the kitchen.

Follow the steps upstairs to find a large bedroom with a king-size bed, as well as a travel cot provided for babes in arms and a feature fireplace.

This room also has a grand mahogany wardrobe with plenty of storage space, as well as a bookcase stocked full with books for some late night reading.

From the bedroom, there are wonderful views over the neighbouring historic houses, greenery and Dunster Castle.

Dunster is home to many historical attractions, including Dunster Castle, which lies on the top of a steep hill called The Tor, which has been fortified since the late Anglo-Saxon period.

Let's not forget the Yarn Market, which was built in the early 17th century and has been designated as a Grade I listed building and scheduled monument.

In addition the Benedictine Priory Dovecote and Tithe Barn, with village gardens, lie to the side and behind the property.

Cobbles is the perfect spot for those interested in exploring historical landmarks and Exmoor National Park.

From the village you can climb Grabbist Hill to the Giants Chair and Gallox Hill Camp to Bats Castle.

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.
