DUNSTER,
a magnificent medieval village, is situated near the site of historic Dunster Castle,
which has been occupied for over 1000 years; held by the Luttrell family for 600 years.

Travel through a romantic history at the castle, the church and other places of antiquity in Dunster such as the
water mill, mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086, reconstructed in 1779.

Dunster, the jewel in the crown of Exmoor, offers universal appeal in all seasons, a wealth of history and infinite variety.


Dunster Castle and village as it looked many years ago.  Its historic eight-gabled Yarn Market was built in 1609 by George Luttrell for the sale of renowned Dunster cloth.
High Street, as it looks today (1997), maintains the picturesque tranquility of an unspoiled medieval village.  The Yarn Market sits opposite The Luttrell Arms Hotel.
The Luttrell Arms Hotel, whose oldest section dates from 1443 was used by the Luttrell family as a guesthouse for the Abbots of Cleeve.  Today it offers a perfect setting for rest and relaxation of the Dunster visitor.
