About Old Priory Cottage

Old Priory Cottage comfortably sleeps four guests in two bedrooms and is a delightful retreat that is nicely tucked away from the road sitting in a walled garden. It's special and enviable setting is just a short stroll (only a few minutes) from Dunster's high street with its great restaurants, shops and pubs. It also sits a stone's throw from the villages many historic buildings including the Dovecote, the Tithe Barn and St George's church.

Dunster is a vibrant village surrounded by the beautiful backdrop of Exmoor National Park. The village offers a good choice of restaurants, tea rooms and pubs to suit all tastes, along with independent shops to browse and a Tourist Information Centre to help you plan your holiday. Some shops stay open late during the busy summer months and you can purchase everything from gifts and jewellery to local produce for preparing supper.

The seaside town of Minehead is only a mile and a half away from Old Priory Cottage and provides a wider choice of shops with high street banks and larger supermarkets. Sitting at the point where the moor meets the sea, Minehead provides good old fashioned seaside fun with its beaches (both sand and pebble), promenade and quayside where the coastal path begins providing access to miles of walking.

Exmoor National Park itself is a superb playground for outdoor enthusiasts, whether your passion is walking, mountain biking or horse riding. With a diverse range of scenery which includes pretty villages with country pubs, wooded valleys and heather clad rugged moorland, the area is a haven for wildlife including the famous Exmoor ponies and red deer. It also offers a diverse range of attractions to amuse all ages including the West Somerset Railway, Exmoor Owl and Hawk Centre, Toore Cider Farm, Lundy Island, Exmoor Zoo and Tropiquaria Zoo for the more exotic species to name just a few.

With so much to see and do and unrivalled natural beauty, Exmoor is a holiday destination you will want to return to time and time again and Old Priory Cottage provides the ideal base from which to enjoy it.
