I stayed at the Yarn Market Hotel for a week in early October 2012 so that I could walk the Coleridge Way. Antony and his staff were marvelous. I was picked up on arrival at the bus stop and provided with a lovely room (double bed, free wifi, all amenities including a bath with plenty of hot water) that was a good size and spotlessly clean. After a substantial breakfast each day, I was given a packed lunch and plenty of maps/directions for the day's walk, driven to the starting point and then picked up when I was ready to call it a day. The day finished with a drink and dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The Yarn Market Hotel is a combination of three old houses and it works beautifully - there is a lot of charm in making your way through the houses to the different parts of the hotel. As a solo traveller, I was made to feel very welcome and was extremely well looked after by all the staff. I highly recommend the hotel to anyone wishing to explore the area around Dunster. The Yarn Market is also ideally located for exploring the medieval village of Dunster itself and its castle.
