Dunster is often referred to as the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of Exmoor National Park. The village is overlooked by the famous Dunster Castle, and is full of medieval buildings and thatched cottages. Wander through the old streets and you will find a wealth of interesting historical buildings including the Yarn Market, a medieval dovecote, tithe barn, a working watermill, and St George’s Church, which has been featured on BBC ‘English Churches’, and has the longest Rood screen in England. There are many listed buildings in Dunster, from the large merchant houses in the High Street to the more humble homes of the former medieval woollen workers in West Street, and many others, making Dunster one of the most picturesque villages on Exmoor.
Dunster has a wide variety of interesting shops and galleries selling a range of quality and unusual goods, from art and antiques to fudge! There are many good restaurants to choose from.
