This is a great place to visit. With so much history, including the Castle, Watermill, Gallox Bridge, Church and Yarn Market, and so many wonderful shops and places to eat, particularly The Luttrel Arms. You will need at least a few days to fully enjoy all it has to offer....

we visited this beautiful place 3 years ago. It was thriving and very busy. Having returned recently it was sad to see so many buildings in the high street empty and up for sale. It was quiet, but the weather was not very good the weekend we visited. The village is very pricey for food, so maybe they are pricing themselves out of business.The buildings are still fabulous, but apart from the hotels, restaurants there are only a handful of art and craft type shops, a souvenier shop, post office and nic nacs.

Walk around the village and find plenty of history and things to see and do.The church is very interesting as is the dovecote .There are many walks around the village ,the walk foll to the folly or over pack bridge .Visit the castle or the free toy museum .if you have time visit Dunster Beach . Parking is limited and pay and display car parks.plenty of cafes although in the winter season limited.toilets in car park .

If you want to step back in time then Dunster village is the place to go. The buildings and shops are very old and you also have Dunster Castle. A most interesting visit. Be sure to have a cream tea in one of the many Tea Rooms.
