The Old Priory Cottage in Dunster, near Minehead, Somerset sleeps 4 people. The Old Priory Cottage near Minehead is aproached through beautiful stone archways, past The Priory Church of St George, and below Dunster Castle, which rises high above you. This is a truly inspiring cottage situated in heart of Dunster. Opening the small wooden gate, walk through the beautiful gardens whilst maybe hearing the chiming of the church clock. This semi-detached property lies in a very unique and captivating setting, and is a charming historic house built in the 12th century as a small Benedictine priory. It was established by the abbey at Bath and still remains attached to St George’s Church at one corner. The cloisters between the two buildings were dismantled and there is now a memorial garden in its place. The church garden is open to the public, with private access from The Old Priory’s garden. The cottage is full of character, and retains its 14th-century open fireplace and its old wooden beams from the 12th century. The property used to be owned by the Luttrell Family, who also occupied Dunster Castle until 1976, after which it was passed on to the National Trust.

As far as location goes, this property is just perfect, with everything on your doorstep. Dunster is set within the boundaries of Exmoor National Park overlooking the Bristol Channel coastline, and is a village offering so much charm and character. Taking a stroll through the streets you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining, with lavish restaurants, country pubs and quirky tearooms. Lose yourself in the arts and crafts shops, or venture to the top of the village, where you can visit the National Trust sites of Dunster Castle and the Dunster Working Watermill, or head towards the seafront and take in the breathtaking views across the Bristol Channel, with Wales in the distance. You can explore the stunning Somerset countryside in a very unique way by hopping on the West Somerset Railway steam train. This can be boarded in Dunster or the next stop along in Minehead. Porlock, with an array of shops and eateries, the harbour town of Watchet, as well as its neighbouring beach of Blue Anchor can be reached in 15 minutes. These are perfect places to enjoy the scenery and walk along the coastline. No visit to Somerset is complete without heading into the Exmoor National Park, which is just minutes away. If you want to head further afield, you are close enough to visit Devon, 40 miles, Lyme Regis, 45 miles, or Bath, 80 miles.
