We just returned from a wonderful stay at the Higher Orchard. Very relaxing, quiet. The hosts were lovely people who were always very helpful and personable. The B&B is absolutely beautiful, as are the surrounding gardens. I'll keep this short, but I could go on and on. VERY highly recommended. Dunster village is very nice; this makes an excellent base...

It has easy parking access and is just a couple of minutes walk into the lovely village of Dunster where there are some quaint shops, tea rooms and pubs. Graham and Janet were really great hosts and the house and garden is gorgeous and full... More

We had a truly memorable stay in this beautiful historic house set in magical gardens crammed with climbing roses, lavender pathways and fruit trees. Janet and graham were such wonderful hosts and loved sharing their Somerset stories with us. The rooms were warm and cosy and waking up to misty views of the castle and sea was a true delight....

We stayed just two nights at this lovely place and really enjoyed it! The breakfast was delicious, our hosts very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean, cosy and well heated. Unfortunately it was very cold for late April but we had a great weekend in Dunster!

What a find........a lovely Edwardian style building rising over the town of Dunster. Stayed two nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. The welcome from the owner was friendly and accompanied by tea and biscuits which was an unexpected gesture. The room was clean, spacious and reflected the character of the building. The breakfast was enticing from... More

Wonderful B&B, glorious views, first rate breakfast. This lovely B&B is set in a very pretty village with walking from the doorstep. Graham has a good selection of maps and books and can advise on a wide variety of places to go in the locality. The gardens are a delight - they certainly gave me food for thought on return... More
