Be king or queen of the castle

Dunster Castle is owned by the National Trust and sits above the medieval village of Dunster - a short walk, drive or stream train ride from Minehead.

Take a tour of the castle itself, but don’t forget to explore the glorious sub-tropical gardens or see the working watermill in action.

Special events are staged during the summer months, including activities for children, falconry displays and outdoor theatre performances.  For information, see

The medieval village is worth exploring too, with it's cobbled pavements, historic buildings (including the yarn market, church, tithe barn and dove cote) and a good range of independent shops and eateries.
