Our situation in a National Park means that our guests can enjoy some of the finest scenery and walks in the land; The High Moor around Dunkery, and the Deep valleys that were the setting for Lorna Doone, are just a couple spectacular sights in the local area.
The magnificent Dunster Castle, sited on the wooded hill high above Dunster, has overlooked the village since at Norman times. It has an impressive medieval gatehouse and a ruined tower as well as impressive interiors and subtropical gardens to enjoy.

Exmoor marks the start of the 630 mile South West Coast footpath. It is also home to a superb collection of fauna and flora. Exmoor is a stronghold for Red Deer, the Exmoor pony and it’s not unusual to see a Merlin or Peregrine falcon. During the winter months, nine hunts meet over Exmoor.
Why not ask us about Red Stag Safaris, pony trekking, coast steering and the abundance of other outdoor activities right on our door step!
