Set in the heart of the beautiful village of Dunster, an idyllic location. This quirky, medieval terraced cottage was built in the winter of 1366 according to the Time Team, and is one of the oldest private houses in the village. It has been sympathetically restored and furnished to retain its truly unique character and charm. The spacious living room is the perfect place to relax and listen to the crackling of the wood burner, whilst the snug is ideal as a place to read and relax, or play games and have fun. It also features an old black wooden door frame which was original to the house, although this was not its original location. Off the entrance hall, complete with a 16th-century wooden screen, are dining and utility rooms and a large country-style kitchen. Accessed from the kitchen or dining room is a pretty courtyard area with seating. Higher up is a deck which offers views of the surrounding countryside. Upstairs there's a master bedroom with the wow factor - an antique four poster bed, large cruck beams and en-suite shower room which can also be accessed off the landing. There's also a double with en-suite facilities and a twin. If you're coming to the area as a large party, this property forms part of a group with The Old Sweet Shop (ref UKC3164), Stone Barn (ref UKC3594) and Pilgrim Corner (ref EWQ) just minutes away in Minehead.
This really is the perfect location as everything is on your doorstep. Dunster is in the Exmoor National Park, and the medieval village is one of the most famous on Exmoor with its picturesque setting and high street.

Head up the hill to visit the National Trust castle and working water mill, or through the village for ancient dovecote buildings and a beautiful church. At the seafront there's chalets on Dunster beach and views over the Bristol Channel to Wales.
