Description

Dunster Castle is a magnificent castle located in the charming medieval village of Dunster in Somerset. Built on a hill overlooking the village, the castle dates back to the Norman Conquest and has been beautifully preserved over the centuries.

The castle features stunning architecture, including a medieval gatehouse and a Georgian facade. Visitors can explore the castle's beautiful rooms, which are filled with original features such as wood paneling, stained glass windows, and antique furniture.

In addition to the castle itself, Dunster Castle is surrounded by beautiful gardens and parkland. Visitors can explore the castle's extensive gardens, which include terraces, a watermill, and a beautiful woodland walk.

The watermill, which is located at the bottom of the hill, is one of the last working watermills in England and offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of milling. Visitors can learn about the process of grinding flour and see the mill in action, powered by the nearby river.
