Summary

Damson Cottage is a holiday cottage nestled in the historic, medieval village of Dunster in West Somerset.

With 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a recently refitted  kitchen, the cottage makes the ideal base for a holiday in the West Country.
The village of Dunster has masses to offer the visitor. Situated at the foot of Exmoor, and a mile from the beach, the village houses of Dunster are over-looked by Dunster Castle (National Trust) perched atop its own out-crop.

Around the village are additional historic points of interest, including the tithe barn, water-mill, dove-cote & old pottery kiln.

A short walk up out of the village, to the north, finds Conygar tower, from which excellent views over the Bristol Channel are found. There are plenty of lovely walks directly from the cottage. To the South is the hill with earthworks known as Bat’s Castle, reached via the old packhorse  crossing of the River Avill, Gallox Bridge and past a number of old thatched cottages. The woods also contain England’s tallest tree.  This area is also more directly accessible by a short drive south of the village.The grounds of the National Trust Castle also offer an array of colours and foliage through the seasons.
