Dunster - Somerset Coast Festival polaroid image

A fairy tale castle perched high on a hill. An iconic Yarn Market. Charming shop fronts nestled side-by-side upon cobbled streets. A church with a famous carillon of bells. A water mill, dovecote and tithe barn. An ancient packhorse bridge snaking across the River Avill. Rose-covered thatched cottages. A Victorian folly rising from Conygar Hill, with panoramic views to coast and countryside. A puffing steam train completes the scene.

Welcome to Dunster, one of England’s most beautiful and fascinating medieval villages.
